Even though they strive on work/life balance, there is no such thing for parents with young children. They will fire you if you take time off for your kids' health. HR is useless, they work for 'the company' and 'upper management' not for individual contributor. Dare not go to HR with an issue about your boss, etc. You will be put on a watch list and the next thing you know you are under the microscope. No integrity, no loyalty. Peers and supervisors will literally stab you in the back, strip the shirt off your back to 'get in with the boss' With Medimmune now under Aztraneca, its all about keeping 'their' job. You are worked to death, you put your best foot forward, but no recognition. Toxic environment, unhealthy and discrimation is what you get when you accept employment here.
employees/management is overpaid
the place and people eat you alive.
