    I worked at Pfizer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong benefits
    Everyone knows Pfizer
    Reasonable workload
    Nice travel and perks

    Cons

    Career potential lost in constant survival mode in downsizing company.
    Most of network over the years I was there had been laid off or left for other opportunity
    No external training or conference funds in my dept
    poor internal job placement and recruiting processes, seems like candidates are pre-selected and you waste time going through meaningless interviews if your even selected at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was at Pfizer nearly 12 years so I saw the better times to the stock lows and downright unpleasant period which is still ongoing of constant outsourcing and downsizing. I benefited from a fantastic tuition reimbursement program (long since reduced to about average) and it made no difference in finding better work within the company to use my skills.
    For up to 2 years at a time I saw no raises of significance 1-2% at best and promotion cycles were suspended. Management spent and promoted certain individuals by placing them in other jobs to get around this.
    Regrettably I left for another opportunity as I had realized that my best days at Pfizer were years behind me.
    I hope Pfizer finds its feet again and looks more critically at itself and how do develop its professionals. There is not enough transparency in the promotion process, and its not enough to be happy just to be in your dead end job for a few years. If escaping layoff cycles is the best that can be offered, just get it over with.
