    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time

    Pros

    travel discount; job security; big company

    Cons

    small politics dominate. Science doesn't speak. company values are just talks. people are still in different offices after years. Too many inexperienced people in high-level roles but lots of talented and hardworking people are in low positions. To "reward" employees who haven't left the company early enough, they cut the company's pension contribution meanwhile telling people "return to growth ".

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    living values and behaviours: follow the science, put patients first, play to win, do the right thing, entrepreneurial. Together with sustainability and great goals (curing cancer) - there's a strong sense of collaborative purpose to turn molecules into medicines

    Cons

    we're all only human and we only have so many hours in a day - there's way more opportunity than time to take advantage of it.
