I have been working at Pfizer full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Pfizer's compensation is remarkable.
Scale is second to none.
Leading edge compared to other companies (pharma and non-pharma)
Amazing training and level of responsibility

Cons

Continuous Downsizing
Impression that Pfizer people do not do "hands-on" work by other companies
Spoiled due to outstanding salary and benefits
Available roles, outside the company, much narrower in scope, responsibility, compensation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company has been floundering with no continuous strategy for the past 3 CEOs. BIG Pharma (sell off consumers), Diversity (buy consumer products), BIG Pharma (sell of other divisions). How can an organization function with such confusion, it cannot.

    unsure job with not so well set goals and execution. Creativity was not much encouraged. Too much time spent on administrative routines.

    Set a long-term goal and stick to it. Attract people with talents and retain them.
