I recently applied for a position at AstraZeneca. Nothing happened in first 3 months. I did not hear back anything from them. My application status was "application received" until last week. I checked the workday system and I saw my application is "inactive" and "No longer in consideration". They even did not send any notification about the application. They are really terrible company. They say they have values but they do not respect people. It is controversial!

Compared to many other biotech companies in the area MedImmune pays its employees more and offers great benefits. If you are in any area outside of manufacturing you will probably be happy.
Does not seem to care about work-life balance of employees. Back in January they created a new 24/7 schedule but it doesn't work well for those on night shift. You will either be working every holiday or every Fri night. Recently they have been bringing in more people from the outside as opposed to hiring from within. This has made it more difficult to change departments.2

Great place to work with generally very nice and super smart people. AZ provides great facilities for people and takes care of staff. Generally good benefits and very interesting projects especially if you work in Data science!
Has some issues similar to other large organisations in that multiple functions compete, sometimes work in silos although this is improving now. Not always co-ordinated in how projects start up, this can make it very lengthy when a lot of people get involved.

In general, employee policies are fair and reasonable. Benefits are pretty good and the overall atmosphere and moral is positive.
The environment you experience depends heavily on the team for which you work. For example, favoritism sometimes exists on teams and new ideas are not always welcome.

Great culture Great values Professional A place where you can develop your skills
Compared to other multinational pharmaceutical companies they didn't use to have good salaries and benefits.

Benefits including private health care and ability to buy 10 extra days holiday Hybrid working (3 days on site) Development frameworks Wellbeing focus
Chronically under resourced with big ambitions Slow to make big decisions Constant reorganisations making more high level roles without considering scientists doing the work

competitive benefits Depending on your department, opportunities for growth family friendly neighborhood successful company
*horrible work life balance (despite great executives/benefits the average worker is always overwhelmed) *promotions mean nothing in R&D but more work: My promotion was a cut in pay (from working constant overtime to a salaried employee = you're doing a great job and we want to keep you, let's increase you're title, and take away you're overtime) *always a constant focus on upper management and how important they are. if you're below scientist II you are really just a number to medimmune * excessive stress and work load in R&D despite the effort to reduce this through better benefits. your workload will never decrease. *decisions are made on your behalf and your voice means nothing3

Great and innovating company to work for with great benefits.
Management accountability needs to be transparent

Flexible working, salaries are good, if working in the right areas there's an excellent team dynamic. People are amazingly friendly despite all that's going on.
A company amongst the midst of massive changes worldwide. Feathers are ruffled, people are unhappy. The company needs to look at employees who do a fair bulk of the hard work and learn how to value them. Little to no value on PA's, despite the hours and work they have done, and continue to do despite being told there is no future for them at the company as they won't relocate them. Could benefit with a clear out of the dead wood now and not wait for natural waste to occur. They also need to make up their minds about the relocation, which is now accelerated to next summer, not summer 2015/2016, and have a little respect towards those they know they don't want to take.1

Large organization but is nimble and runs like a small shop in Canada. I would highly recommend especially for those in the sciences! Great atmosphere, strong leadership team and HR actually knows that they’re doing which is refreshing! Great benefits plan and DC pension plan matching contributions are very competitive.
Global AZ can really complicate things for the local market but this is common in other multinational organizations. I would also say that the global organization is very sophisticated yet they lack rigour and can lack context for the local markets.1
