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

    Pros

    My mentor and manager were excellent with training me in the lab and allowing me to be a part of every part of their research during my three month internship.
    The other interns are very social- we did things like go out to eat a lot, go to a National's game, etc.

    Cons

    Honestly I only got this internship because I had a connection. Otherwise, I believe they are very competitive and pushing your resume through the system could be tricky.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the internship program! Going through Kelly Services wasn't the best experience ever, but it seemed to be fine for me.

    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.
