    Pros

    The company was very entrepreneurial and driven to do well for the end customers/patients. Allowed flexibility and drove for excellence.

    Cons

    Corporate reorganization and closer ties with parent company, Astra Zeneca, took away the smaller company feel and independence that the company had prior to the reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve the company's employees in the operations and activities of the parent company.

    Summer Internship position, R&D, Protein Purification Science, Process Biochemistry

    Former Employee - Intern in Gaithersburg, MD (US)

    I worked at MedImmune as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment was fabulous. As an intern, I would arguably say that I learned more there in one summer than 4 years at university. The people are so innovative, practical, and hardworking, so it was a receptive environment for progress and novel ideas to create realistic, efficient solutions. The team that I worked with showed me what true teamwork and collaboration is supposed to look like, and how it can affect the outcome and timeline of product and success. The happy hour every Friday is just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    These R&D positions require long hours and abundant sources of patience, but I feel as a scientist, that should be a given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management that I saw was professional, incredibly patient, and willing to impart knowledge, and even make me (as an intern) feel included in the projects and gain insight into what it would realistically look like working there.
