    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is above Cambridge averages. Good culture and lots of potential for career development. Excellent first experience at working for a FTSE 100 company.

    Cons

    There can be a face-time culture in some areas. Some people are permitted to under perform and no action appears to be taken, this is most clearly present with some IT contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Threats to AZ's long term sustainability may come from some unconventional places. To protect against these threats you will need to improve the quality of your recruits, and broaden the horizon of your threat analysis. Become intentional about encouraging flexible working arrangements.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in January-2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is divided into three parts, behavioural, technical and meeting the team. They send me information beforehand which was helpful in the preparation. The technical part is very much in-depth, I would recommend thorough preparation. I felt treated with respect and they showed a genuine interest in my achievements and what I could bring to the company.
