    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great science, and overall a great place to work. Compensation was fair and promotion and annual reviews very transparent.

    Cons

    Changing directions based on non-scientific decisions. Very large and somewhat cumbersome administration. Overall a great place to work given the size of the organisation. People make all the difference and I was happy to work with the best!

    Pros

    The company employs a lot of very talented individuals, and the headline benefits of working there are excellent. Despite downsizing, working for Pfizer still carries a level of kudos.

    Cons

    Constant organisational change is tiring the workforce and wearing it down. The outsourcing of skilled and loyal groups of staff has a destabilising and disheartening impact on those remaining in the company. Ultimately, despite fine words, the organisation has no loyalty to those who serve it and in reality views them as nothing more than a resource to be jettisoned when necessary, with minimum regard for individuals.

    Repeated efforts to restructure are leading to a confused and demoralised staff group who openly acknowledge that they can look no more than twelve months in advance in their employment and feel no great security in working for the company.

    The over downgrading of facilities at the main site, the closure of the company R&D centre, the diminution of the pension scheme, erosion of benefits and scaling back of travel and expenses arrangements all indicate that the company is looking to cut costs and no longer views either itself as a premium bran while staff are no longer seen as valued colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on some of your fine words about Pfizer values.

    Pros

    Breadth of projects was substantial enabling a range of skills to be developed quickly. Budgets for projects were good so this did not constrain opportunities to develop ideas.

    Cons

    Management communications were sometimes below expectations for a lage firm. In addition, promotions were not clearly linked to performance which frustrated employees

    Advice to Management

    Provide a means of fast-tracking your best employees, outside of the formal structure, and you will retain your best talent otherwise they will leave to seek recognition elsewhere
