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

    Pros

    Kind people genuinely looking to better the pharmaceutical market by making drugs patients need. Great place to learn and meet new people.

    Cons

    A lot of training is required given that pharmaceuticals are highly sensitive products. Very large company and at times it is easy to realize your position in the company.

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

    Pros

    Everyone at Pfizer seems content in their job. The safety culture is outstanding. Amenities and benefits are plentiful, such as on-site cafeterias, large work-spaces, all the benefits of large corporations.

    Cons

    At times the culture was a bit dry. More of an environmental factor which is beginning to change. Also, downsizing does affect some people (including me), but this period comes for just about every company at some point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, encourage the type of cross-functional communication that is already beginning. Environmental factors (such as office/functional room arrangement, atmosphere, use of technology) can be used to create an innovative environment.
