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

    Pros

    Very friendly co workers and flexible working. Travel and global exposure

    Cons

    No strategic leadership provided. Compliance functions are broken down into process silos so there is no overall ownership within the groups and a lack of responsibility to remain compliant across the company

    Advice to Management

    Reorganise your Compliance functions so that responsibility and ownership can be re-introduced and avoid bureaucracy.
