I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits package, and holidays (usually 22 days minimum + christmas, and opportunity to "buy" an additional 10 days. Flexible working is great for those with families.

Cons

Highly corporate mentality, high pressure workload but flexible working and good holidays help relieve this.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Alderley Park = best pharmaceutical R&D site in the UK period.
    Use the most amazing technology in a science focused organisation.
    Working environment = no dress code + mostly great people who are really friendly.
    Much less bureaucratic and corporate since the 2013 shake up.
    The higher ups are genuinely passionate about science, collaboration and R&D +++++

    Cons

    Moving to Cambridge and all that goes along with that.
    ....A nice looking building if you don't mind waiting a decade to move in,
    Money's good, but check their redundancy stats = not the best.
