    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Companies strategy to make a difference to 200 million peoples lives, feels like you are making a difference

    Cons

    Like many large companies you have to build a strong network to get things done, and its overly complex. Despite a Great Place to Work being a priority for several years, still see bullying behaviours, poor managers, preference for external hires, and a fear of speaking out.

    Advice to Management

    Root out the poor leaders and fire them.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good definitely outweighs the bad.. Good benefits, good pay. They take care of their employees. If you have any questions they have multiple ways to find answers.

    Cons

    Past your manager, they are out of touch what it’s like at the rep level. Upper management is more concerned with getting promoted.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great pay for the area, good benefits, work-life balance is good

    Cons

    Less pay than competing companies in other areas (Boston, SanFran), regularly goes through re-organizations (not abnormal for biotech, but something to be aware of), speaks a lot about diversity but leadership doesn't reflect it.
