    I worked at MedImmune as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Whether a contractor or permanent employee the benefits are good. Time off and schedule is fair. Company provides free coffee/tea, refrigerators and microwaves for meals, able to leave work for breaks at times with food places closeby. Decent work/life balance. Many meetings providing growth, learning, food, company events during work hours that you can enjoy catered meals. Many incentives to make the working environment enjoyable.

    Cons

    Can be hard to fit in. Management does not always stick up for what is right in a professional way often humiliating people in front of other coworkers during shift change over meetings. HR is nonexistent. Not enough people in management to properly manage this type of company dynamic often leaving management to even vend for themselves with no support so it's no wonder they can't support others properly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more management and don't feed into issues. Go about things the right way without humiliating workers that dedicate so much of their time and efforts to the advancement of the company.

    I worked at MedImmune (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, strong focus on following the science. They give you enough autonomy to get the job done.

    Cons

    High pressure and stress level, work takes over your life. For me, work was located in Gaithersburg, MD and I live in Linfield, PA (150 miles away), Medimmune did not compensate me for living expenses or travel costs.

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros at MedImmune. All the things you look for in a job (respect from coworkers, work life balance, career progession) are non-existent at MedImmune

    Cons

    The people here act very childish and immature. The management sucks, three people will teach you something three different ways. The work/life balance sucked. My direct manager was terrible, she was always in peoples business, she loved to gossip and micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of peoples business. Stop micromanaging.

    I worked there as a contractor. The job itself was ok, but the Hours were too long. They will never make you permanent unless you know someone in management.

    Cons

    Long hours, short term contract

    Advice to Management

    Hire more permanent employees

    I worked at MedImmune as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They take people with little or no experience. You can avoid working all together if you hide out from your responsibility. If you negotiate you can make more than other people on shift and make your own days and hours.

    Cons

    They treat you like you can be replaced immediately. They ask you to change shifts and hours almost at random. You will get stuck doing the same job unless you complain or you make enough mistakes that they decide it's better to move you. Most of the people that work here don't know how to do their job and a few people carry the rest of the shift.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people that don't know how to do their job and review people more frequently to make sure they understand the SOPs.
