Relaxed place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Alderley Park, England (UK)

I have been working at AstraZeneca

ProsNice atmosphere, relaxed atmosphere in my area.

ConsCan be difficult to get people on-board with some projects. The relaxed atmosphere is nice, but it can feel a bit lethargic at times. A bit of an 'old boy' network in the top echelons with the older (mainly men) enjoying excellent salaries, with a bit of a difficult climb for talented younger people. Most of the really talented people move to other companies in order to get ahead.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter talent spotting at the junior levels. Too stultifying at the top levels.
