    Pros

    Best of both worlds: small enough to be entrepreneurial and nimble, yet part of a large, well established organization (Astra Zeneca). Focused on transforming patients' lives. All scientists I worked with there believed in this mission.

    Cons

    If you are not a scientist, it may take some time to feel you are a good fit for the company. It happens but it takes time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on improving your talent development processes. They are good but they can be great.

    Pros

    Medimmune offered very good financial compensation for its interns. At $33 per hour and opportunities for overtime along with a $1500 per month living stipend. Also, the parties that Medimmune had for Halloween and big launches are second to none. As far as working at Medimmune, work space is plentiful and supplies are always accessible to allow for great science.

    Cons

    The only downside of Medimmune was having to leave and go back to finish school.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the entertaining company meetings. Its excites the company and brews camaraderie.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. The biotech culture is alive. Happy hours, off hour functions, and a real sense of family are some of the things you notice that make MedImmune stand out from other companies.

    Cons

    Some of the management isnt the strongest. Its very hard to get into MedI but once you get in, its also hard to get people out. It seems like with all the potential out in the workforce, MedI holds on to some people who may not be worth holding on to.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on performance, fire based on performance.
