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.

    I worked at Pfizer

    Pros

    There are many smart scientist and managers within Pfizer who mentor junior scientist and support their career development. The smaller sites do have a innovative biotech culture.

    Cons

    There are many smart and innovative scientist within Pfizer who can impact the drug discover pipeline but are hindered by schizophrenic mission changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give missions enough time to impact and contribute to the organization.
