    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time

    Pros

    Great company with good benefits.

    Cons

    An incestuous, overly political, extremely poor management team: The department is run by people who don't know what they are doing. Everyone is basically technicians. Majority of them are not professional, have limited management skills and are not even educated with the proper degree for their positions. They repeatedly demonstrate some of the most childish behavior I've ever witnessed it my career. I've never seen a leadership more capable of setting people up for failure, and then blame them for it when they do. They drag you around until you either break or you leave the company. The department is in constant chaos and they continue to re-org with very little benefit it seems. There is no career development whatsoever and there is favoritism abound. Advancement is not based on tenure, education, or experience; it is by who you can get close to. Management makes promises and rarely provides closure. They say engagement is "critical" but do not support individual participation nor do managers encourage inclusion on the annual review process.
