    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People at AZ are the kindest of any place I have worked in my 20+ years experience. The pay is above average as is the company's annual award and LTI; they recognize the work employees put in. The location is MD is ideal as the cost of living is moderate compared to other cities on the East Coast and access to Baltimore, Washington and the shore are perfect. Management is not boxed in by process and willing to do what is needed. Career advancement is taken seriously, encouraged and can be seen.

    Cons

    While location is a plus it is almost somewhat of a small negative by some as there aren't many other "games in town". Management style is very friendly with fairly easy access to the highest levels but micromanagement trickles down from the top and can be a bit frustrating at time. The lack of sticking to process, while a positive, can also be a slight negative as roles/responsibilities/accountabilities can get quite confusing; sometimes it seems like too many cooks in the kitchen. Like all companies, AZ has its core principles that can seem cliché in the trenches but they take the heed to some key ones. People work very hard at AZ which can be draining, but it is recognized and rewarded.
