I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 10 years)
Good base salaries and fairly good benefits. Lot's of opportunities to move up if you know how to play the politics. Large company and tons of real world business and science problems to solve. Still the biggest pharma in the world.
The business technology organization has grown stagnate. The desktop image is still Windows 8.0 that was deployed a little over a year ago from XP. Years behind in leveraging cloud services and a decade behind in Big Data Strategy. The no longer innovate and try to spin all technology into a commodity before understanding the problems that need to be solved.
Advice to Management
Hiring young IT talent is good but you are not Google or Amazon so you are going to need to pay a "Cloud Architect" more than a Sr Professional or lower salary grade if you want to attract new talent. On the converse the sign on bonus that Amazon uses may help as well.
