      Pros

      Great pay, benefits, bonus, LTI. You can learn a lot and work with very smart folks.

      Cons

      No work/life balance with 60 hours/week expected or you will get a low job review rating. AZ has biases against the former Medimmune employees and has made an effort to push them out of the organization and was told that in 2019 60% of those such employees left company. Has become a big pharma company and very political. UK management calls all the shots over the USA staff.

      Better as MedImmune but Not Terrible

      Pros

      Competitive salary and benefits. Very knowledgeable scientists so you can improve or gain a plethora of knowledge if you use the resources provided.

      Cons

      Many pains as the company that was formerly MedImmune aligns with AstraZeneca policies. The "great place to work" phrase that was earned by MedImmune is now long gone. While there are attempts to maintain a great workplace there is a long way to go until this may be an actuality under the new management and teams.

      Pros

      Science-based research and great people to work with

      Cons

      Since AstraZeneca took over and retired the Medimmune name the biotech culture has been lost. Feels like big pharma with a higher emphasis on throughput and corporate image

      Pros

      Ambitious plan to return to growth appears to be working

      Cons

      I originally joined CAT which then became MedImmune and then AZ. The changes that brought weren't for everyone, including me!

      Shooting themselves in the foot

      Pros

      The people are dedicated to what they do and are great to work with Facility in Gaithersburg is nice, lots of perks

      Cons

      Starting in June 2018, it was announced that the telework arrangements that MedImmune employees had enjoyed for years were being eliminated because of the bad behavior of a few who took advantage. Are we in middle school? This was the single dumbest thing I have ever seen any management team do. It has bred a great deal of resentment, and many employees are leaving the organization because of it. My own department is seriously understaffed -- we had three directors leave within 4 months -- and it's hard to see how they are going to fill those positions, given that Gaithersburg isn't exactly a hotbed of excitement and that most career advancement opportunities involve moving to the parent company (AstraZeneca).

      Pros

      Innovative and expanding. Like any company, your director manager determines a lot about your experience. I have had a majority of good people as managers.

      Cons

      MedImmune and AZ business is still divided, There is some disparity in pay based on the team that you are working for..driven by markets I'm sure.
