Featured Review

Current Employee - Scientist

I have been working at Pfizer full-time

Pros

Work life balance is great

Cons

As with all pharma companies, there is a lot of bureaucracy.

"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.

Advice to Management

None
