Recent desperation of the impending patent cliff has made for a hostile environment.

I have been working at Pfizer

Pros

Great benefits (health, vacation, etc.) and good salary. People are very friendly and always willing to help. New hires get a great 401k match.

Cons

Unfortunately, with all the acquisitions Pfizer has done in the last 10 years is leading to a lot of layoffs in the last few years.

    Pros

    The people at Pfizer are very devoted and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There is too much reorganization which distracts from the good science being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease the amount of layoffs and reorganizations to allow employees to focus on their research.

    I worked at Pfizer

    Pros

    intelligent people, great location, big budgets for marketing programs, good hours + summer hours, depth to your projects, ability to work with experienced people

    Cons

    competitive, not a merit- based promotion system (still too much process/hurdles), difficult to leave your department if you are good.... they will promote up before they promote over-and-up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont delay promotions when the manager is pushing for it - you will end up losing more people than you already have. the people that stay are (usually) the people that no other company wants.
