How often do employees say they are paid at AstraZeneca?

Pros

Good company to work for, very good for health & safety. Good bonuses & share scheme, good wages & shift disturbance payments. Wide range of roles available, & can move up from shop floor into management.

Cons

Pension scheme has been butchered a couple of times over the years, so, whilst still not bad, is nowhere near as good as it was. If you've been there a long time you'll probably start feeling that its diminishing returns on overall enjoyment. Many seem to end up a bit disillusioned. Some of the directions coming from top management leave the workers scratching their heads in dis-belief. Does often seem like management listen to the loudmouths, & bad behaviour has been seen to be rewarded. On balance, still a good place to work, but if you're looking to be there for a long time, be prepared for a level of disillusionment to set in eventually.

Advice to Management

Think before you pontificate. Those of us who've been there for years see the same ideas coming & going every few years or so, coming in & out of favour & back round again. When this is pointed out, we're labelled as negative! Most people there want to do a good job, but managers are rarely aware of who actually does what.
