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.
Marketing Intern (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – February 24, 2015
Pros: cheap lunches, closer to the city
Cons: not enough incentives for late professionals, no career progression for new professionals
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.
Great environment to work in with strong work-life balance!
