    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    *Nice & understanding colleagues around. *Work as a team instead sole driver. *A lot of events throughout the year with lot of foods. *Nice office setup.

    Cons

    *Micro-managed and political senior management. *Egoism among a few leaders who reluctantly accept the fact or comments when certain issues arise. *Welfare is so-so but to a MNC company, is considered below average. *Basically they just want to hire someone that is obedient and listen to whatever boss said. If you disagree with that, that's it. Prepare your resignation letter or you might be asked to go with... their "Focus To Win" program.

    Advice to Management

    To The Management: Be open-minded and willing to take criticism anytime. Don't always tell your staff that "You're not there yet"

    Pros

    The company provides lots of career development opportunities. It advocates diversity and pay attention to gender balance in the management groups.

    Cons

    As a big company with many regulations and policies, the execution speed is not as agile as small biotech.

    Advice to Management

    Operate drug discovery groups as true innovative biotech.
