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

Pros

Progressive, risk tolerant, always changing/learning

Cons

Stressful, always acquiring and cutting, more focused on cutting costs and people than growing the top line, preaching engagement and balance but not practicing it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach, cut at top levels consistent with lower level jobs, recognize that just since a major product goes off patent does not mean all operations for all other products can reduce to account for lost revenues

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

    Pros

    It is a paycheck
    Good institution to learn cannibalistic methods in management
    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
