I worked at AstraZeneca as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good teams mean your days flow nicely, nice cafeteria, great campus

Cons

Big pharma always has a lot of bureaucracy, way too many meetings, hard to being experiments quickly

Advice to Management

Try to improve cross-departmental collaboration/communication and allow for more rotational work through the different groups.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Good pay
    -Good pipeline especially in oncology
    -Good products

    Cons

    -Pipeline is very weak outside of oncology
    -Big pharma mentality (although not as bad as some other big pharma companies, a lot depends on your direct manager and his manager)
    -A lot of big revenue products have and will go off patent soon
    -Sales employees have to pay $160 per month for personal use of company car
    -Cost of health insurance has gone up in the past few years but AZ still pays approximately 90% of the cost
