    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    The tools they use are outdated.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.

    Pros

    Good work life balance for everyone

    Cons

    Sometimes HR is biased when it comes to IJPs. HR and team decide on the candidate to fill the role and then circulate internal mail calculation but the same opening will not be available in workday to view. I think this is done only to have a reference number in workday. This isn't proper work ethics.
