    I have been working at Pfizer full-time

    Pros

    These have been absolutely the best people with whom I have ever worked!!!! There is no challenge too large or unique that they will not take on and just completely "crush it!" - Overachieve

    Cons

    Leadership - senior level for site andtheir superiors, are out of touch with the shop floor workers and too wrapped up in their egos! No decisions can be decentralized - everything is very much dictated and micro-managed in spite of the massive amounts of talent and creativity at the Site!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off and let your taalented bench play!! Just let them take care of current day-to-day business and you focus on what challenges/opportunities are coming down the road for which we need to begin planning and preparation.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pfizer is full of talent and capability. People who work their are truly passionate about the pharma/healthcare industry and the good that it does. The company is very Wall Street-savvy and manages to please investors, which is not a bad thing. If you are smart and network with the right decision-makers, you can write your own ticket to a robust career. Pfizer donates to so many good causes and sends its talented personnel all over the world to work pro-bono on establishing health care infrastructure in countries where little infrastructure exists.

    Cons

    The company can be cheap to a default. Asking employees to fund their own relocation and international assignments is not a market-competitive practice. The New York HQ office environment can be so political that the buzz distracts employees from doing their work. There is founded and constant worry about layoffs, which happens each year at least in the hundreds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being penny-wise and pound foolish. People paying for their own relos or huge chunks of expat assignment expenses (like housing) is over-the-top. The C-suite should also practice what it preaches. It's not ok to cut down on benefits and downgrade jobs when you're scheduling board meetings in Bermuda with the spa completely rented out for spouses....
