    Pros

    Managers had integrity and truly cared about professional development.

    Cons

    Organization is so big it often loses itself... important to stay within a team or department that is aligned on their vision and where you are empowered to implement it in a practical way.

    Former Intern - Summer(Research and Development) in Groton, CT
    Former Intern - Summer(Research and Development) in Groton, CT

    I worked at Pfizer as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people, and there was plenty of opportunity to network and learn about all the facets of the company. The atmosphere was mostly informal, and I always felt my effort was appreciated. The on-boarding and training was satisfactory, and addressed all the hazards I would face adequately.

    Cons

    The company feels very large and compartmentalized. If you want to see other business units as an intern, you need to put forth effort and speak out to make it happen. Especially interning in the sciences, you will never speak to anyone from the business side unless you go well out of your way to network.
