    Former Employee - Senior Principal Scientist in Boston, MA

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

    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 Management

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


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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (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 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.
