No opinion of CEO

Pros

Compensation and benefits are great, good support to acquire capital equipment for research, good network infrastructure to connect with fellow colleagues at other research sites

Cons

Years of 2005-2010 have been filled with transition and turmoil, bad morale amongst employees currently with regards to the management, perceived lack of patience and dedication to research

Advice to Management

Constant reorganizations and refocusing of research efforts every other year gives the impression to employees and investors that management has no idea on what they are doing and displays a lack of vision

    Pros

    good for interim labor needs

    Cons

    bureaucracy galore
    unfair contracting practices
    poor management oversight
    lazy employees are untouchable
    temps get the crap

    I contracted at Pfizer headquarters in an interim project coordinator role. I had one boss who fortunately gave me leeway but I had to work my butt off to prove myself. Icing on the cake was I found a lateral position to the one I worked and that contractor billing rate was 50% higher than my agency's rate (and from that I got a mere pittence). You can bust your a** trying to get somewhere in this company but things will never change. If you're a contractor, get while any gettin' is good and keep your eyes peeled for greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Management simply "does not get it". Period. Worst set of management I ever saw. I wouldn't send a dog there for a drink of water let alone recommend it. Took me a year to recoup from the trauma --lol.
