Featured Review

Current Employee - Executive Assistant

I have been working at Roche full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You can balance your worklife

Cons

Nothing as like, everything I liked in Roche

Current Employee - Pharmacovigilance Officer

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

Pros

You get to work on wide range of activities ranging from health authority queries to signal management to aggregate reports The management is broad minded and in most cases the culture is a... reflection of Sweden/UK where the company is based out of They value your inputs and invest well in training and team based activities. Patient safety is one among its five core values and all your work is patient centric.

Cons

The tools they use are outdated. Due to this the burden shifts to the employee to manually manage things on their own. Whether it's project management or data analysis, you have to manage yourself.... Not adequate parking facility for the cars in the building where the office is based out of. Due to this they actively encourage carpooling. No cab facility for employees. This will add to the soft costs (travel expenditure). However for levels E and above there is car lease facility.

Advice to Management

Investment in Project Management Tools should be considered.
