Pfizer was an amazing dream which became a dark nightmare. One word - Lipitor!

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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some really great people. As a large company, many opportunities to develop oneself by applying for more challenging positions. Some teams are well aligned.

    Cons

    Steady stream of layoffs results in general unease - who will be next? The pharmaceutical business model is changing dramatically due to lack of significant new products, regulatory pressure on sales, inability to influence managed healthcare decision makers, etc. The good old days of pharma are over.

    Overly bureaucratic, and can be slow to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Be sincere and honest
