Good people, work very hard
I really enjoyed Astra Zeneca. I had to pass a three stage interview for a 12 month fixed term role. Including a personality and ability test. So they filter the people that can work there. The people there are the nicest people I have worked with, not perfect, not all totally friendly, but the least political. A lot work very hard, hours were long, benefits of gym membership at the uni, cheaper food, discounts on medication, events and events centre.
I did have a stressful job, but because the people were nice I didn't feel it as much.
Pros
Great culture, benefits, people nice
Cons
can be long hours, some uncertainty at that point in time.

Fun workplace
I gained many new skills here, met some many different people and left with many friends.
I only left this position due to a relocation to NSW in Australia. Where my partner is studying his PhD.

I will be looking for something similar to this role

great place to work, gym provided
A great place to work well balance and flexibility in working time. This is a pharmaceutical company with lots of people came from different culture and race but the morale is high. Workers from the operators to top managers are so friendly and respect with each other.

I love my job that is why I lasted for over 20 years but my latest role was made redundant due to shift change and organisation re-design within the quality department.
Pros
food is subsidised + yearly corporate bonuses
Cons
Multi skilling

Job Culture
Highly structured professional organisation with strong ethical and development oriented culture
An excellent place to work with great support mechanisms and flexible approaches encouraging work-life balance.
Rewards were generous with competitive salaries and allowances, additional leave available on a performance basis.

Good technology provision with latest iOS devices and online tools.

Management culture was generally good with a collaborative approach to development and goal achievement. Most difficult aspects of the role are overcoming access barriers to the target customer group and addressing sales threats (like pricing issues, generic competition or strong competitor activity, or other market forces).
Pros
Flexibility, Salary, Incentive and Car Allowance
Cons
After hours work, country travel, external market forces.
