    Good people, terrible location

    Research Inern (Former Employee)
    Sandwich, England (UK)

    ProsThe people are great, lots of young recent graduates, friendly atmosphere. Good food in the canteen, lots of cafes around the site.

    ConsSandwich, Kent. You're in the middle of nowhere, literally can not walk to anything except other Pfizer buildings and fields. Canterbury is basically the only town in the area. The buildings are all those new 'high tech' complex type constructions, that have zero soul. Very high turnover of employees. I think many people were on ~2 year contracts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's hard to give a toss about a company if you and everyone else in your team is on a 2 year contract. Build up a loyal workforce.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Too short and badly organised

    Senior Scientist (Former Employee)
    Sandwich, England (UK)

    ProsHuge amount of scientific knowledge and facilities on the whole were very good.

    ConsThe department I worked for was new and badly thought out, some of the staff recruited were simply not suitable for the positions they were in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you set up a new Tox dept hire experienced Tox people first and not from within.

    25 good years, last 5 much more difficult

    Production Director (Former Employee)
    Sandwich, England (UK)

    ProsGood salaries. Good products and a history of treating staff fairly. Interesting work with a high technical content in some roles.

    ConsCurrently a lot of uncertainty, lack of clear direction and the ever present knowledge that further downsizing will be happening soon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the staff a chance to regroup. The endless changes of the last few years have given the Research Organization little chance to focus on the discovery of new medicines
