    Pros

    Junior or immediate supervisors are understanding, caring, and act as a shield between you and senior management.

    Strict executive management always looking for results no matter the priority or resource availability. Jumping to conclusions using draft data is common.

    Pros

    Although very large, the company found a way to foster cooperative behavior. Good training. Smart people. Organized and professional.

    Cons

    Low-growth at the time meant that there was less opportunity to progress in career. At times, one might wish for more flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    I was far too far down the hierarchy to advise management. I wish them all the best in their future work.

    Pros

    There was true role clarity in my positions at Wyeth, but there were also many opportunities to join special projects, grow skills and network. Their training programs were fantastic and there was a pleasant work atmosphere. Summer hours were a terrific bonus.

    Cons

    Inconsistent ability to get things done. In some departments, sign-off could be obtained quickly and process implemented successfully. In other areas, there was a lot of bureaucracy and political maneuvering.

    Pros

    The projects that I worked on were pretty top notch. Also the salaries were not excellent but the benefits definitely made up for that. The healthplan and flexible spending account was superb. The company store had many discounts on every day items.

    Cons

    It was not the most "cutting edge" company.

    Advice to Management

    You should never have sold us to Pfizer
