    Pros

    Good benefits. Demographic. Good online sources and management.

    Cons

    But it doesn't mean that every manager is good. Some managers aren't good at managing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to improve their interpersonal skills, and shouldn't be selfish.

    Pfizer is a great place to work, but you are basiclly cattle in a farm, like at most biotechs

    I worked at Pfizer Limited

    Pros

    Pfizer is a great place to work because of it's fantastic reputation. They produce some of the most well known and most profitable drugs in the world and research wise, they essentially have unlimited resources.

    Cons

    Management is in their own world as with most biotech companies. The amount of money going through the company is astronomical and management will never tell you where it's going. There is never a legitimate chance to publish your own personal research because it all belongs to Pfizer and it's a money game and besides, you'd never have time to conduct your own personal experiments anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more information to the employees

    I have been working at Pfizer Limited

    Pros

    I was interning for a month at the Pfizer plant in Turbhe, and I must say the people there were extremely welcoming and supportive. My commuting and food was so well taken care of. It was a good month of lot of learning and fun. And the plant is rather green and beautiful with lots of plantation.

    Cons

    I could have been given more work.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Pfizer Limited full-time

    Pros

    Good for retirement plan as the company is very structured.

    Cons

    A place with a lot of discussion going on.
    Traditional working system and making things hard to implement and greats ideas are diminished.
    Career prospect is limited with opportunities of international exposure almost none to speak of.
    Every proposal is about cost cutting instead of improvement concept
    Risk taking is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management often used policy to press on employee instead of flexibility.
    work-life balance can be real challenge especially on supervisors that only want all things to be done in one day and without doing a good scheduling.
    Lack of good decision making skills

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good training and nice to be part of the blue badge.

    Cons

    Too many plates to spin! Nothing is enough. Lack of focus. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one or two areas as an account manager. Unrealistic call rate for LAMs that result in us seeing the wrong people. Call rate is higher than the target call rare for the GP reps....surely not right given there are far fewer customers to go at. Just trust us to deliver on our objectives and review us on that.
