I worked at Pfizer full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Way too few to mention

Cons

Too many to list: Cronyism.
Lay offs occur every two weeks like clockwork. It's the only thing that HR does efficiently.
This is not a research based pharmaceutical company...
Pfizer is a Merger and Acquisition machine that has zero heart
Think "The Borg" and "Assimilation" and you have a good idea of a 'nice' day at Pfizer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have no more advice to share with management--they do not listen anyway.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, but they cut back on many.

    Cons

    My supervisor/manager micromanaged to the point that he was constantly in my face and was abusive. I was non-exempt, and worked through lunch and after 5pm. Never got paid for over-time because the non-exempt staff was told that they had to finish all their work, and it was impossible to finish by 5pm. And, when men were hired with only a bachlors degree they usually went into management trainee programs, but most women didn't, they just remained in their positions.
    Moral was horrible! I stayed because of the benefits, medical, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have non-exempt staff review their supervisors, and listen to what they have to say. HR didn't want to hear anything! And, when men were hired with only a bachlors degree they usually went into management trainee programs, but most women didn't, they just remained in their positions.
