Does AstraZeneca offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Good training resources Flexible working hours

Cons

No benefits package (pension, holiday days, health care, shares, etc) No sick pay No diversity (predominantly women and aged 40+. There is no in between the older generation and graduates/apprentices. Lack of diverse backgrounds and ethnic groups) A lot of gossip and negative speaking behind people backs from the older women Favouritism with management

Advice to Management

Stop keeping employee on contracts especially agency contracts. Give employees the rights just like permanent staff. Too many employees on contracts for too many years with no benefits! Stop being cheap and give your hardworking employees the rights just as anyone else! People on agency contract for 4 years are not temporary clearly!

Does AstraZeneca offer massages?

Pros

Friendly environment ( not always) Good work life balance Managers are really awesome..( few black sheep also) Free Lunch and free cab (cab only for permanent resources even though contract women employees works on late night or 2nd shift) Best company for women employees when they are permanent For permanent resources it's a good one if you works with good manager Easy projects compare to other companies Team outing for every four months Annual day celebrations Friday Zumba and yoga Team activities on monthly basis You can enjoy when you are working here Flexible time but a decent flexible... Managers are easily approachable Good perks and benefits particularly on medical line.

Cons

Handling / satisfying managers are very tough even though your points are right.. No onsite Eye wash one on one for hike / promotion No recognition for your work if you are not close to your manager / if you can't explain what u haven't done..lol.. Simply says you have to show case your each step even though that is not imp/ you are not aware of it... Lot of politics... Less work life balance.... If you get in to a project under worst manager (There is lot of good managers too.. you are lucky if you get a chance to work with them.. I got those chances and these are the things I have seen with my friends while they suffer a lot... )... So think a lot before you join..

Advice to Management

Overall good company but please make sure whether all teams/ managers are following the same. They are the mirror for your company, so make them transperant

Does AstraZeneca offer parental leave?

Pros

Benefits are great, 401k, tuition reimbursement, maternity leave

Cons

The company tried to expand too quickly, resulting in hiring poor quality of CRAs and managers. The management team plays favorites and only promote those who can brown nose their way to the top. Others who work endless hours and provide quality work are overlooked because they are not given visibility to management team. You will not be promoted unless your manager allows you to be promoted.

Advice to Management

Hire managers who are experienced, have diverse background, and stop favoring people who do not have enough experience to be promoted. Input an anonymous review system for employees to provide feedback about managers.
