    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance Not many micro-managers Good training Customers respect the company and its reps

    Cons

    Mandated policy to pay below industry median Non-existent annual pay rises - seek promotions rather than a good annual review. Toxic culture where many staff are out to look good and protect themselves rather than collaborate. Tight with money but wasteful at the same time. Could spend money in better ways. Promotions are political. They always hire with a set person in mind after having ‘conversations that didn’t happen’
