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.

    Former Employee - Senior Process Technician in Andover, MA

    I worked at Pfizer full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good money even for entry level techs. Three weeks vacation right out of the gate. Great prescription plan.

    Cons

    Different messages sent throughout the managment levels. Unfavorable works schedules. Lacks a sense of pride and unity. Very much an "us" vs "them" environment between management and workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the employees feel important and valued. Make sure people in leadership positions are truly qualified. Lead by commanding respect not demanding respect. Create a sense of pride and community that will lead to a happier and more productive work environment.
