    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, nothing else, nothing else, nothing else (had to enter 5 pros)

    Cons

    Political atmosphere, unbearable bureaucracy, best talent continues to leave, ready-fire-aim business strategy, decisions based on leaders personal interests and never around making best science decisions or even decisions in best benefit of company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and allow scientists to make decisions.

    Pros

    Great team, co-workers; sense of empowerment

    Cons

    Once they started outsourcing, they went wild - staff became disengaged, lost vested interest, always fearful for their job. Philosophy of the company completely changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember - value your staff - they are the ones that enable you to succeed as a manager. To upper management - don't forget your roots. Once you get too far removed, it is easy to forget what it takes to do the job. It is easy to spout out directives and unreasonable timelines, but if you forget to involve the function in these decisions, you will never have successful results or a productive staff.
