Former Employee - Project Manager in Pearl River, NY
Former Employee - Project Manager in Pearl River, NY

I worked at Pfizer full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Promote Work/ Life Balance. Fast paced work environment. Very smart people to work with. Constant changes create steady opportunities for growth. World class product pipeline.

Cons

Career ladders are rigid. Top down cascade creates lack of buy-in from shop floor environment. Change is not embrassed well and line of communication across departments is horrible. Political atmosphere worst than a GOP convention.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the best leaders in the world are some of the best listeners. Identify demonstrations of great leadership.

    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a paycheck

    Good institution to learn what not to do in one's career
    Nice location

    Cons

    Many middle managers lack insight to the future, they are just surviving week to week
    Many supervisors lack adequate supervisory skills.
    Many middle managers have no empathy, except for their own survival

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have senior managers with biotech drug discovery and development experience. The old Pfizer playbook is a bit ragged...

    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable company to work for with Industry average salaries and other incentives. Corporate culture established over a long time. Reasonable benefits although they have been decreasing over time.

    Cons

    The company is very big and not well integrated. Very difficult to get things done across functional areas. Communication from senior leaders is not robust. The company has been financially focused over the past ten years with few new products. Cost cutting is a major focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new products
