MedImmune
Area Business Manager (Former Employee) –  Gaithersburg, MD13 June 2017
Medimmune as an independent commercial entity is largely gone, and is now just a part of AstraZeneca Respiratory division. While new products are coming onboard, they are applying a reach and frequency primary care approach to the business.
Pros
Large organization with resources
Cons
Large organization making decision making difficult

Good place to work but not for the ambitious
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Gaithersburg, MD6 June 2017
The company has a really good work/life balance with good hours, good vacation time, and other types of leave (sick, bereavement, jury, maternity, etc...). Management is generally good and the culture values results and ability and is generally pretty good as well.

The only downside is the compensation/benefits tend to be pretty sparse compared to other companies so you need to negotiate more initially. Also, while I've worked here for 4+ years, there have been cases of layoffs and firings. Advancement is also really slow with many long-time employees working 3-4 years before promotions.

Overall a good place to work but not a good place to get ahead.
Pros
free gym, cafeteria in building, company discounts
Cons
slow promotions, compensation

Best place worked at to date
TEAM SECRETARY/ADMIN ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Cambridge18 May 2017
Very supportive, focused and fair workplace. They believe in equity and so initiated my NVQ training to level me out with colleagues, management was the best received to date again more an equity style and so no two 1:1s were the same. Great onsite restaurant (at the time i worked there) and decent and respectful colleagues who believed in their research.
Pros
Great colleagues, competitive salary, work/life balance
Cons
HR management

Dod and aerospace systems
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Frederick, MD5 May 2017
Day at work consisted of parts placement and running wires. Reference on DOD drawings , sub notes being followed for labels to be adhered to cables and markers. Terminals being placed for wiring harness as well as. Pins and sockets being placed on cables and attachment to junction boxes as well as main control units. Very relaxed air conditioned facility with plenty of necessary instructions, meetings to make sure all departments adhere to standards both MIL SPEC ad ISO 9200. Difficult part was physical attention to all markings and connections that were required for each unit leading to main platforms. Most enjoyable part was very fun and exciting to work on actual working systems used by US NAVY and other branches for Radar and Microwave communication and detection.
Pros
Great hours and very good facility top of line with everything
Cons
Allot of regulations and inspections needed to be preformed

Fun and exciting place to work. My only word of advice for MedImmune is to get rid of the legacy upper management. They are driving the place into the ground.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
upper management

Challenging workplace environment to succeed in.
Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  Gaithersburg, MD12 February 2017
Initially MedImmune was an exciting place to work with many interesting challenges for a newly minted science. However, after many years that environment gave way to the extreme pressures to deliver on clinical goals. This not really unique to MedImmune. The pharmaceutical industry as a whole faces similar challenges.
Pros
Gym
Cons
Very little work/life balance
