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

    Pros

    Good work life balance in the R&D teams, good benefits. AZ has been doing well with its pipeline, and looks robust for the next 10 years.

    Cons

    Internal silos, lead to multiple teams doing the same things without clear direction. Lack of efficiency in scientific efforts because there is not enough focus on TA impact.

    Advice to Management

    TA impact has to be emphasized when deciding in scientific/research investments. Even though discovery is farther from product/project -- it is important to iteratively build clarity about how this work is going to make impact (and revenue).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Waltham, MA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The US based team were OK. But the UK based computational chemistry team were very rude and mean. It made me very uncomfortable. Overall, a big corporate culture, did not feel like these was a place to grow and learn, but rather a place to crank up the machine and produce $$$ for the investors.
