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!

Fantastic company benefits but would rather be happy at a job than have a great pension scheme. Holidays are also decent that’s about it really.
Appraisal system was used inappropriately to destroy how hard people worked. Building a relationship with the senior team was nothing short of a challenge. Most senior managers and team leaders etc are technically brilliant but lack true leadership skills. To much of us and them attitude etc that lead to low morale and trust issues. Don’t go in with an open mind and think of changing anything you will get shot down fairly quickly, it’s not what you know it’s who you know.3

Pay range is excellent and bonuses get better the longer you serve. Good facilities and benefits such as gym membership, income protection insurance and great conferences.
No rep advocates amongst senior management and very few capable FLSM's. Not fun to work here any more as most managers are too busy trying to justify their jobs. Hard work done by the visionaries in the company is been undone by poor implementation and the erosion of talent within middle management.

Depend on whether you like being micromanaged
Managers tend to want control of everything and micromanage to the point of not being able to satisfied and kiss your free-time goodbye

Strong products and product recognition from our customers. AstraZeneca provides so many tools to help you plan and sell. I appreciate their high standard for ethics and emphasis, "Do the Right Thing".
Overemphasis on personal development which is a distraction to business planning and selling in the field. There is no uniform way how to sell pharmaceuticals or selling in general. Different managers I worked for had his/her own sales theory which made it confusing for the whole team and customers.1

Really nice office and people. Could be a good working experience if you're lucky enough to have a supportive manager.
It very much depends where you land. Bullying, poor management and personal grudge can be part of your daily routine. I've met really good team leaders but I've seen bad ones too and "speak up" culture for now seems to be just an ad without real application.1

They really care about work-life balance. It's great if you have a good manager who really cares about their project.
Open-office idea is becoming company wide. Small rooms available but they frown on camping. It's becoming more hostile after the Astra-Zeneca mergers.

Generaly very nice people to work with and managers etc on a personal level were always warm and accomodating where possible
wage is average to poor for the sector. Little room for progression with most people staying for at least 5-8 years in their band. Very resistant to change and were often met with a "we do it this way because we have always done it this way" mantra - despite all of the change an initiatives from the top which were often meerly just words rather than actions. Constant rounds of reorganisation and redundancies meant that productivity had dropped at least 50% as people were too bust working out where the next job was going to be!1

Everyone at Astrazeneca is lovely, there is a lot of support there, great benefits such as buying holidays, an online doctor and private healthcare which has helped. They have a great company culture and everyone from the UK country president to senior managers are really lovely to talk to
There has been a restructure every year since I started, you really need to champion your own development and speak up if you want to grow.1

The benefits package is comparable and the health benefits includes infertility coverage.
Certain managers will not allow the ability to work remotely even though the company promotes worklife balance.

Great Learning experience and very good compensation
The internship program is not very structured and the entire experience is based on how good your manager is1
