    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay and benefits. Good people. Company vision is promising wrt drug pipeline. IT strategy clear.

    Cons

    Annual reorgs in IT has most of the experienced people hanging around waiting for a package. In the US it's a job not a career. Shrink your way to success strategy. Brain drain... off shore all technical jobs to India or Mexico (calling it "insourcing").
    Hiring technical people off shore with the decent technical know how but no clue about the business. ZERO opportunities for career growth / promotion in the US or Sweden.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stabbing your most experience talent and knowledge in US//Sweden in the back. Remember who brung you to the dance. Good ideas and leaders are not only in the UK.

    Do not join if role is in Wilmington, DE. This site will likely close within next 3 years. Some roles will move to Gaithersburg but most people will simply lose their jobs

    Just pull the bandaid off already with Wilmington.
