    I worked at Wyeth full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked for a company where I learned to use my skills and obtained an excellent experience. Company showed me that the life of our customers was very important. My efforts were noticed therefore I got transferred to another department. I enjoyed working there a lot because everyone was friendly and worked as a team.

    Cons

    Nothing to say on this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with the employees at production and packaging.
