    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with at least theoretical potential for career movement
    Competent and hard-working employees on the "average employee" level.
    Helpful support network within the company with other sites being willing to provide expertise

    Cons

    Extremely low compensation. Low potential for increased compensation. Little recognition.
    High-stress environment, tight and rigid deadlines. Lots of burnout and long-term sick leaves.
    Cult-like rhetoric. "Are you ready to win?" Very Americanized.
    Middle managers are overwhelmed and do not notice individual contributions, meaning they also cannot help with personal development or even recognize the amount of work employees are putting in.
    Not sure if the perceived mobility is actually there.
    Leaders who are unable to take feedback even from peers.
    Excessive control, little employee trust, micromanaging, safety rules that make you wonder how you ever survive in your daily life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees! After a stressful year where everybody has worked themselves half to burnout, don't skimp on bonuses and salaries.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Södertälje (Sweden)) in March 2008.

    Interview

    One interview at their office. Basic and simple questions, focused mostly on explaining the details of the project. Two people present, manager and closest (future) colleague. Questions related mostly to my education and to my courses and interests. Took less than an hour, no other candidates would be interviewed for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • How come you choose to study... (Don't remember more since this was a coupple of years ago).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me if I wanted the job at the interview.
