Pros

Big company with good benefits

Cons

The company has declined and no longer is a good place to work. There are more layoffs than opportunities, promotions are unclear and often frozen. Jobs internally are difficult to get and often determined in advance. There is no serious development or growth at this company anymore and I have been here over ten years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I dont know what to say, the business environment is tough but the company just seems to cut doe'rs and keep the fat, outsource knowledge and skills and just become overseers. This used to be a great place to be...

    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 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.

    Pros

    good resources, well-paid, nice work environment, and integration of functions of different group. People were friendly and helpful and worked hard.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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