    I worked at MedImmune as an intern

    Pros

    I think this was a decently well-paid for undergrad interns. I got to work with amazing scientists who treat you with respect, because I landed in a really good lab and got a really understanding manager who was seriously interested in training me.

    Cons

    There was zero relocation assistance this year, and you pretty much just need to be local to do this internship. There was also no opportunities to work full-time immediately following the internship, unlike other companies that intentionally hire an intern for full-time employment consideration.

    Advice to Management

    I wish they would help us find real full time employment opportunities or at least help us develop networks for finding careers since they don't hire any of us after the internship.

    I worked at MedImmune as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great vibe. The decor and work environment are very nice.
    Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack sense of clear direction for the company from senior management
    Internship was what you wanted to get out of it, as in I worked very hard and learned an a lot during my summer internship from all the different scientists, but I know other interns who didn't put in much effort and got very little out of the experience

    Advice to Management

    The company could be better organized, with more streamlined workflow. The management and work ethic seems inefficient at times.

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    Medi has made efforts to engage its employees, with flex. work arrangements for many employees, an upgrade of its facilities, and regular happy hours. Turnover is low and most people seem content with good salaries and work-life balance. As the new science hub for US Astrazeneca, the opportunities at the Gaithersburg site should only grow. The fitness center is excellent and there are plans to build a childcare center.

    Cons

    Career progression is limited in a lot of groups, particularly outside R&D (where there is a formal career ladder for scientists). It seems there is a bias towards hiring external talent vs. developing existing employees

    Advice to Management

    Make career development a priority in the form of rotations, stretch assignments, a philosophy of internal hiring, etc.
