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.

    Great development opportunities. Benefit package very good, but salaries are not.


    A lot of politics and 'who you know'.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MedImmune (Cambridge, East of England, England) in November 2017.


    Applied online. Took 2 weeks. Invited to a face to face interview at their offices in Cambridge. The interviewers were really friendly and made me fell comfortable. Before the interview I was sent a scientific article and asked to prepare a 10 min presentation about the topic answering 2 specific questions ( mainly techniques they are using in their research).
