    I have been working at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    If you do not have a PhD, then you will always be second best.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities for everybody. Don't let a few horde all the projects.

    Pros

    Nice, open work environment as well as friendly, smart people.

    Cons

    The company seems to spend a lot of extraneous money. Might not be good for the long-run, but definitely good for the employees.

    I worked at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    If you do not mind to be a number and waste company's money and time to please your manager is a good place to stay

    Cons

    No chance to go anywhere if you are not the favorite one - being a favorite one is not based on competency or professionalism of course! - and if you do not produce expected results

    Advice to Management

    Management.... mmmmm a word in a dictionary in this company

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

    Pros

    Great pipeline and nice people,

    Cons

    Undervalued, staff with universally low morale. Inconsistent standard of facilities across the sites. No flexible working allowed. All these factors leading to a mass exodus of staff, coupled with inability to recruit into open positions due to lower base salary than MRP.

    Advice to Management

    See above.

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

    Pros

    The access to training and knowledge is extremely good.
    The compensation package is fair and bonuses are linked to company and personal performance.
    The pipeline is world class.
    You get to work with a large number of different types of molecules.
    Innovation and disruptive thinking are encouraged.
    Company vision and values are well communicated by senior leadership.
    Rotational programs allow access to experience working in other departments.

    Cons

    In such a large company it is fairly hard to get promoted but access to different training opportunities more than compensate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is a privilege to work for an amazing company with patients at the forefront of everything we do.

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to telework, benefits and aesthetics of company space in Gaithersburg

    Cons

    Only 10% of workers get promoted per year and the rest of the qualified people already working at the next level get put on a waiting list for next year. Each manager only gets to put a certain number of people up, so in a year when more of their direct reports are ready, they have to choose the "top" performers. People work in silos and there's a lot of waste in the company, change can't be implemented with managers who want to keep the status quo. Not much opportunities for growth. No trust or faith among group members. No transparency in leadership operations. No leadership.

    Advice to Management

    No leadership within the group, no "do the right thing" attitude in PPS, good luck.

    Pros

    Awesome colleagues, great benefits and perks, cool pipeline

    Cons

    HR opposed to drastic promotions even when considered deserved, have to fight to be entrusted with projects sometimes because of not having Ph.D.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people when they deserve it, not based on what time of the year it is
