Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at Pfizer as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Everyone was friendly.. Good use of technology. Help available every step of the way

Cons

Team members were in various different cities so conversations happened over phone/IM. Not exactly a con but some more face-to-face interaction would have been nice.

    I worked at Pfizer as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people chosen for my team were almost entirely apolitical, technically excellent, and focused on the goals of the project. Almost every technical meeting we had, someone would bring the question(s) with which we were wrangling back to "...so how does this benefit the customer?" Our manager was very smart, very savvy at working the organization above him, and took completely to heart the managers' job of being an umbrella for everything that "rolls downhill," so as to keep the team focused and motivated. A dream team.

    Cons

    The team has since been disbanded, and while the project has been moved into "Maintenance Mode," it is still being rolled out to new locations. Sponsor and manager were let go, most of the team members have either left the company or are in new roles over which they are far less satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bespoke software can, in fact, be a competitive advantage.
