    Pros

    Pfizer treats the employees very well and creates a great environment for growth. Compensation, Benefits and Stock options are really great. It has got many programs like Straight talk, Open door policy which gives employees an opportunity to be heard.

    Cons

    You need to demonstrate competency. Communication and performances are the key to Sustain. Unfortunately, there are many individuals unrecognized by the leaders and got fired eventually. Also, recruiting mostly happens internally and the network is important.

    Pros

    Challenging work, engaging, bright people, great brand

    Cons

    Typical corporate political game playing, a flat structure, and few opportunities for promotion. You need to be happy with what you get coming in because you may not get a promotion for a while, even if you're a star, because a lot of people are stars here.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they're doing for the most part. There is a very strong performance culture, and I don't think they need to do anything to change that.
