    Great work/life balance; too top heavy however.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Gaithersburg, MD (US)

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The IT management is great. A lot of the bosses are either EU based or based in Cambridge. As a result, they have a very good work/life balance. Their philosophy of allowing you to work from home so you can get your house in order and allowing you to work on stuff while in the office lessens the stress and overall allows you to feel like management cares about you.

    Cons

    The management structure is very top-heavy. I report to a lot of different bosses and can rotate between managers very quickly for different projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your intentions on converting contractors clearly.

    Current Employee - Scientist I in Gaithersburg, MD (US)

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Very patient focused, which is inspiring. A little bit unclear how MedImmune will fit into the AZ culture in the long run, but for now the MedI/biotech culture is alive and kicking. Fun happy hours. Nice people. Nice amenities on campus with more planned.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between AZ and MedImmune that can create problems, especially when dealing with late stage projects. Still figuring some things out on the late stage/commercialization side of development. Getting a bit crowded at HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell the company.

    I worked at MedImmune as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary for a contractor.

    Cons

    Office culture is bad with gossip and office politics. Hires from the outside instead of hiring the contractors. Middle management is not good..poor communication. Contractors are treated like second-class citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid the lazy employees and hire the hard-working contractors.
