A sustainable vision

We lead in the development of first-in-class medicines. But we’re also setting an industry example through our sustainability program —including environmental and community outreach, such as STEM education and volunteering. The impact is local, national and, ultimately, global.

STEM education

We’ve made it our business for years to support STEM education—talking to students, their teachers and their parents. Our goal is to share what we know about how these fields are crucial—and even transformative—to all of our futures.

Environmental sustainability

We go beyond basic green measures. We are frontrunners in energy management and efficiency improvement, making us part of an innovative leadership movement focused on long-term energy conservation and a sustainable—yet competitive—future.

Sustainability isn’t just about the environment anymore. It’s also about performance and social responsibility. Our commitment to our business, our industry and our employees is to make all of these elements a strategic priority.

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (More than 8 years)


    The access to training and knowledge is extremely good.
    The compensation package is fair and bonuses are linked to company and personal performance.
    The pipeline is world class.
    You get to work with a large number of different types of molecules.
    Innovation and disruptive thinking are encouraged.
    Company vision and values are well communicated by senior leadership.
    Rotational programs allow access to experience working in other departments.


    In such a large company it is fairly hard to get promoted but access to different training opportunities more than compensate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is a privilege to work for an amazing company with patients at the forefront of everything we do.

    Average Interview


    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MedImmune (London, England).


    Was contacted by phone. Organised a phone interview, was told by interviewer it went really well. Contacted again a few weeks later saying the hiring manager wished to have another phone interview with me tomorrow at 10am, I was confused ANOTHER PHONE INTERVIEW. I said I'm sorry it's too short notice can we arrange another date, never to be heard from again. Extremely poor and unprofessional.
