    I worked at Wyeth

    Pros

    Not one of the massive pharma companies but had great salary and benefits. They were very proud of their employees, products and customers.

    Cons

    They got acquired by Pfizer and had to substantially downsize.

    I worked at Wyeth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The projects that I worked on were pretty top notch. Also the salaries were not excellent but the benefits definitely made up for that. The healthplan and flexible spending account was superb. The company store had many discounts on every day items.

    Cons

    It was not the most "cutting edge" company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should never have sold us to Pfizer

    Low turnover at least in the group I worked at
