    Pros

    - Expectations of your work and responsibilities are very clear from the very beginning.
    - Managers trust and respect your abilities but expect high quality work of you. They do not micro manage and total independence is given for you to complete the assigned tasks.
    - Work life balance is promised and well delivered. Female employees, especially working mothers are given the flexibility to job share, flexible working hours, as well as optional day-off during the week (for example, work 10 hours from Monday to Thursday and take Friday off). Also, they are given the options to work from home, which is a bonus!

    Cons

    - The company's always changing (mergers and acquistion), so job security is a question here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent!

    Pfizer: Very good company with room for improvement (esp., senior mgmt, more careful scrutiny of outsourcing dollars).

    Pros

    The salaries, bonuses and overall benefits are very good. Overall the people are very dedicated, very hard-working and very capable. Employees take pride in the work they do.

    Cons

    Decision-making of senior management is in question. Company reorganizes too often - this is disruptive and leads to feeling that your job is insecure (hurts morale).. The company should seriously consider giving some type of bonus incentive to all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should look outside Pfizer to fill senior management positions. Instead, when they reorganize they have a high tendancy to to "recycle" the senior mgmt individuals to other senior mgmt positions. Thus the "thinking" on how to manage the company tends not to change. Individuals who are poor managers tend to remain in management instead of being managed out of the organization. Additionallly, senior management should scrutinze more carefully waste of money - e.g., money spent on outsourcing is not as carefully scrutinized as it should be.
