Never secure
Manager (Current Employee), Wilmington, DESeptember 13, 2014
Pros: good salary and benefits, fun events periodically
Constant state of stress whether your position is being down-sized or not. (Approximately 4 major downsizings in the past 6 years...more to come). Additional concern is the possibility of the Wilmington site shutting down and being required to move to Gaithersburg to the MedImmune facility.

The culture is back to "who you know" as opposed to "what – more... you know". Possiblity for advancement is based on your ability to agree with your manager (and his/her manager) on every comment they make (no matter how clueless it is). – less

I started as an Administrative assistant at AZ in 2000. During that time I learned submission work, cover letters, regulatory documentation. I completed two perceptorships successfully and was offered a job rotation as a regulatory manager. My day consisted of leading cross functional teams, writing regulatory contributions for submissions, and interacting – more... with the FDA on any questions or information they required. I truly liked my duties as a Regulatory Manager and the hardest part was leaving. – less

AstraZeneca
Global Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee), Wilmington, DEJune 6, 2014
Pros: team spirit, middle management
Cons: career development
I became an employee with AstraZeneca at the beginning of their transistion, in 2004. The one thing consistent with AstraZeneca was change. From titles being renamed with the same job description to department name changes with responsibilities remaining the same.

I enjoyed my time working at AstraZeneca, again there was a great spirit of teamwork. – more... Great middlemanagement leadership.

Career growth especially in a support role was very limited within AstraZeneca. You really had to leave the company to advance in your career – less
