Pros

the company has undergone lots of changes but overall, it is diverse, cultured, and inclusive. . Great NYC location and a huge worldwide presence.

Cons

they are outsoursing many functions and the FSPs are diluting the company culture. Overall, no major cons to descibe here

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Business processes are constantly changing and are steamlined to align with current industy shifts; however, it's really diruptive to constsantly change processes.

    Great company for people who can think broadly, cooperate with others, and accept decision by committee.

    Pros

    Some incredibly talented people work for the company. You can live and work in the city, which is incredibly enriching. The company pays well. There is always work to be done.

    Cons

    Frequently things are run by committee and there is little accountability, especially in middle management. They hire a lot of people - possibly more than necessary - which makes for a very competitive internal environment. Every task is an urgent task and for many there is no line between work and home life. The R&D pipeline has be a source of frustration for the company and employees. The company needs to innovate better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the executive leadership is fantastic. It is the middle management where problems exist. Great accountability needs to be driven down to middle management.

    Pfizer lacks a consistent direction and lacks a clear vision

    Pros

    They pay well and that's about it

    Cons

    It is not a place where good science is enabled and talent is recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a vision that respects the talents of the organization and give scientists the time it takes to achieve results. Remember, the creation of drugs is not the same as building cars. At its core it is deciphering the plan of nature and not figuring out how many cup holders a person needs.
