    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. A lot of knowledge at every level of the organisation so always have the best person available to assist you.

    Cons

    Often unprofessional and dont obtain the highest calibre of staff as they are an operations site which may put people off who are looking for a role in R&D. Not enough oppurtunities in science as roles are process or analytical development based.

    Advice to Management

    Be fare with promotions and allow individuals to progress and develop in their roles.

    Pros

    Great people and opportunity to learn

    Cons

    Too focused on what is going on in Gaithersburg, not enough senior managers in Cambridge.
    Not enough resource to focus on non project work that contributes to career development

    Advice to Management

    Increase the headcount to get the work done

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

    Pros

    Struggling to come up with any pros these days. The pipeline is good and there are some exceptionally talent staff but MedImmune as an employer has gone down hill and is loosing quality people due to continued "alignment" with AstraZeneca.

    Cons

    Big benefit cuts to pensions makes working here less attractive. MedI use to be head and shoulders above in their pension scheme which attracted and retained staff. Now they have decided to "align" with the market which means a lot of current staff taking a cut, making the company less attractive to current staff and new staff.

    CEO is getting more out of touch with the staff. Working from home is no longer allowed! Get real this is 2018, she also describing the UK as a tiny island was not a good move.

    Year on year very low percentage pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Cambridge is a hub scientific hub, lots of new dynamic companies taking on staff, reducing benefits will just lead to more experienced talent people leaving.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment and great working conditions. Lots of benefits available as well as talks about different things and networking opportunities

    Cons

    Yet to move to nearer to Cambridge itself. Granta Park circuit is a little far and the move to the new building isn't happening until next year it is now thought.

    Advice to Management

    The management do a great job, the addition of initiatives like the AZ2025 are helpful to make employees feel like their opinions and ideas matter to the company. Making sure that the employees get a say in changes to the company that impact them such as the pension issues is important.

    Pros

    Great pipeline and nice people,

    Cons

    Undervalued, staff with universally low morale. Inconsistent standard of facilities across the sites. No flexible working allowed. All these factors leading to a mass exodus of staff, coupled with inability to recruit into open positions due to lower base salary than MRP.

    Advice to Management

    See above.
