"I've worked with AZ since July, 2013. It's a great company to work for short-term. Because of it's size, it takes a long time before you can move up the ladder. It's also a lot harder for females with a working husband to ever get promoted. You usually have to move to corporate in Deleware before any upward mobility can occur and realistically, how many working mothers can move their children and husband (away from his job) to Delaware in order to tick the box and be promoted. It's just unrealistic. It's great as a 2-3 year job with excellent benefits but it has promotional disadvantages."

Hospital Sales Representative

What do you like about working at AstraZeneca?

"I worked with some of the finest people in the industry and sold an entire portfolio of best in class products in a territory that was the crown jewel of the region."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It is a job with good benefits, but probably not secure in the long term. At one time, it was a great company with a good heart but those times are gone with the expiration of the patents."

What don't you like about working at AstraZeneca?

"The company has lost most of its income due to patent expirations and will have laid off 75% or so of its sales force by 2014 as stated by management. The environment has become one of toxic micromanagement and favoritism as managers protect favorites over talent as the layoffs have been implemented."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Upper management is ruling by fear and micromanagement. There is not much I can say to correct this. The CEO has been sacked along with many managers at all levels. No one feels valued, only hunted."

"The salary is better than working in biosciences or in academia."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Find a niche in the department and stick with it. Share nothing, collaborate with nobody. Build a tower, sit in it, and drive your career from it."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would sack every member of IT immediately, without reference, or severance."
