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.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here are the benefits. That is slowly changing though. Human Resources is slowly restricting our healthcare options and is keeping salaries and raises to a minimum.

    Cons

    The downsides of working here are: 1) Senior Management has no backbone, flawed vision and a poor strategy for achieving desired goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to follow the advice in the book Good to Great: get the right people on the bus, get the wrong people off of the bus and get the right people in the right seats!

    Pros

    Reasonably competitive compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Too fragmented and disorganized, which leads to duplication of efforts, poor communication and inefficient working practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people into leadership roles based on leadership and technical abilities and not for political "payback"
