I worked at Pfizer

Pros

Legacy Wyeth employee, so I actually identify more with Wyeth than Pfizer. As Wyeth, very fair pay and benefits. Room for advancement and excellent work environment. Overall very satisfied as a Wyeth employee.

Cons

The biggest downside was being the victim of downsizing due to the Pfizer/Wyeth merger. I never got a full sense of the Pfizer downsides otherwise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider talent over sheer headcount when reducing staff. The knowledgeable and experienced co-workers that I saw leaving due to the merger was astounding.

    Pros

    The Benefits package, decent salary

    Cons

    LONG hours, little or no work/life balance, managers promote based on company politics more than actual competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees like they actually matter, since we're the ones who help you meet that "bottom line" year after year. When I started working for Pfizer, I was treated with respect, felt like I was an important part of the company, and wasn't expected to work insane hours every day of the week. Just 6 years later, however, the company had changed dramatically and was no longer a fun and great place to work. Getting laid off was a blessing in disguise, as I am now working for a company that truly appreciates my hard work.
