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

    Pros

    You feel like you're part of a team that's truly saving lives. The work, no matter what division you're in, is rewarding.

    Cons

    You're in such a large corporation that you can't always see what's happening at the forefront. Stock doesn't move much, either.
