    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    An exciting scientific atmosphere coupled with good work life balance. There is a current focus on individual development and plenty of opportunities for secondments.

    Cons

    If you're joining as a new Grad or PhD there are already a lot of talented people in the organisation looking for promotion. Hence promotion could be slower than you expect. There is a gradual trend in outsourcing jobs to Asia, with some functions now at a minimum number of UK roles

    Advice to Management

    Employ more scientists in Europe/USA!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Macclesfield, England (UK)) in November-2013.

    Interview

    1 interview + CV screening. There was a 1 hour lunch, a lab tour and then the 1 on 1 interview. Simple process, mostly just scientific questions but also a small amount of competency based questions. They said they were mainly looking for someone who would 1) be enjoyable to be around and 2) was ready to learn.
