Does AstraZeneca offer health insurance?

Pros

The pay could be better for getting your foot in the door.

Cons

You work rotating 12 hr shifts which makes it hard to have a good work life balance, they mostly hire from recruiting agencies and you have no holiday pay, no accumulated vacation, sick time or health insurance etc. for up to and over a year in some instances and a lot of management politics.

Advice to Management

To make their process of hiring good employees quicker, there are not a lot of people that can afford to go 6 mos to 1 year without company sponsored health insurance.

Does AstraZeneca offer sponsored degrees?

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.
