    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee benefits and perks, we have a very nice facility with awesome services, the company spends so much on employees in training and development.

    Probably the most important to me is Diversity and Inclusion, making AZ a safe place out of discrimination in any sense and you can bring yourself to work everyday.

    Cons

    Work is very fast paced and some seasons it's hard to have a work-life balance. It's normal anywhere I guess...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AstraZeneca in August 2016.

    Interview

    Went through online interview (initial screening) was then asked to attend first f2f interview with 2 managers. Asked a lot of behaviorial based questions. Called back a week later for second f2f interview with another 2 managers. This interview went for 1.5 hours and involved a sales role play and further behaviorial based interview. Waiting now for final f2f interview and hopefully get an official offer. Whole process took about 3-4 weeks
