Pros

If you work at Pfizer you can expect: Structured work environment, Great products, Decent Budget, Good intell data, Great Reputation from doctors

Cons

As with all companies of Pfizer's size at times you are nothing more than a number. To succeed at Pfizer it is best to be non-opinionated and follow the scripts.

    Former Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Pfizer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits.
    Excellent training and tools to help you advance in the company.

    Cons

    Extremely corporate and bureaucratic not readily open to innovative ideas.
    Very slow to change.
    Say they care about employees but we are really just a number.
    Wants you to focus on job as priority rather than personal life. You have to work hard to keep balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in "the trenches" we have more direct contact with the key stakeholders: patients and HCP's vs the shareholders. Focus on the patients, HCPs and employees, sales performance and the stock price will improve.

    Current Employee - Senior Scientist in Groton, CT

    I have been working at Pfizer full-time for 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.
