    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The legacy of being people-centric still prevails, although for how long is questionable

    Cons

    IT is being heavily centrered on India now and core competencies are being moved away from the hub countries. The new organisation is struggling to understand the new operating model

    Advice to Management

    work life balance is being seriuosly eroded. A stressed workforce does not give positive outcomes !
