"Quality"27 Jan 2020

Former Employee - Quality Assurance

I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Highly Ethical, great development opportunities if you perform well, Great Quality culture, Transparent organization

Cons

The culture imbibed within management is such that it always takes constructive criticism onboard and actually does something about it. Therefore I don't have any negative points about this company.
