    I worked at MedImmune full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic company benefits but would rather be happy at a job than have a great pension scheme. Holidays are also decent that’s about it really.

    Cons

    Appraisal system was used inappropriately to destroy how hard people worked. Building a relationship with the senior team was nothing short of a challenge. Most senior managers and team leaders etc are technically brilliant but lack true leadership skills. To much of us and them attitude etc that lead to low morale and trust issues. Don’t go in with an open mind and think of changing anything you will get shot down fairly quickly, it’s not what you know it’s who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to unleash their potential and move forward instead of holding people back or destroying confidence..

    Pros

    Great benefits, there are some good people but the old people who have been there for a while run it like an unprofessional place. It use to be a good place until AstraZeneca took over

    Cons

    Lack of care for techs
    Nepotism and racism is a root at the FMC
    Retention rate is horrible
    There is no will to work hard, promotions are based on biases and no one really will help you with your career

    Advice to Management

    We all work 12 hours of labor at least consider us as valuable employees. How do we only get 30min breaks

    Pros

    Friendly and knowledgeable colleagues. Exciting projects.

    Cons

    Quite a lot of pressure and not very good work and life balance. The quality of managers varies wildly. You might be lucky. Or you may not!

    Advice to Management

    Train inexperienced managers and hold them to account. Try and improve work and life balance.
