I have been working at AstraZeneca

Pros

Good package, flexible working, good level of recognition. There is concerted effort to be ethical and improve working standards. Opportunities for career progression are fairly good.

Cons

Lack of coordination and little communication between different parts of organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication from top to downwords and within different departments. It will certainly improve productivity as people in different brands are doing similar things isolated to each other.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca

    Pros

    The benefits are great, and the leaders in my group are respectful and supportive. They are always looking for opportunities for their employees to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Times are changing, and some of the work-life balance benefits are being challenged. I hope the new CIO doesn't mess things up! All software development has been outsourced offshore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People love working for AstraZeneca, and that is because of the flex time available and the respect for employees. If that changes. the highly talented folks will either leave or stop doing a good job.
