First time working from home office. Challenging at first.
Regional, Monitoring Manager (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QCNovember 23, 2015
Had the opportunity to hire several new monitors. I managed a team of 13 Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) or monitors. I was their direct report, evaluating their workload, performance, year end review, salary adjustments etc..
A very pleasant and engaging team of professionals. Still in close contact with almost all of them. It was a pleasure.

Good place for mid-career
Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONFebruary 24, 2015
AstraZeneca provides a great balance between the corporate size (Canadian business atleast) and the yearly turnover. having recently gone a major business shrinkage, they seem to be holding on to more senior management than the people who actually do a lot of the leg work, which currently seems to be mostly outsourced. This presents a unique opportunity for mid to late professionals seeking a more agile work-environment. Not so good for career progression.
Pros
cheap lunches, closer to the city
Cons
not enough incentives for late professionals, no career progression for new professionals
