    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good training structure that is easily applied. Great for new Pharma sales reps as 1.5 years on the job will upskill you enough to get a higher role in another Rx company Work/life balance is great. Very much so 9-5pm Strong patient focus - cementard as a primary care company Based pay is good for someone new to Pharma bu

    Cons

    Limited progression as based on tenure and not skill set Difficult to transition between therapeutic areas Constant senior management change, lolcal managment change and commercial reps leaving. Commissions and pay increases are poor. Don’t expect to early too much.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bleeding senior leaders out, they take a weath of experience with them. Pay your entry staff based on more than their lack of industry experience, you’ll realise they will stay longer.
