    “Best part is any Pfizer or Greenstone (generic brand) drugs which are prescribed come free.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (45 comments)

    “Pfizer offers so much paid time off that it has honestly been hard to use all of the available days you can take off work. They allow you to carry...”

    Really great overall benefits. 401(K) isn't best around but is still very good. Pfizer matches 100% of first 3% then another 50% of next 3% (if you contribute 6%, Pfizer adds another 4.5% for total of 10.5%), vests right away. Additional 401(K) contribution based upon age + years of service, starts at 5% and goes up to 9%, vests after three years. Educational assistance is fantastic, $10K/year toward eligible courses with some at steep discount or even free to enrollee. In Cambridge MA some courses are even offered on site. Vacation starts at 3 weeks/year, only increases after 10 years service so not great. Can roll over up to 5 days per year. Commuter benefit, EAP system and tons of on site activities too, from professional development to fun activities. Cambridge specific, varies by site: week between Christmas and New Year's off for "free" with caveat you don't get random three day weekends like Columbus Day, MLK Day, President's Day, etc.

    Pfizer products are free to employees; no set amount of sick days - you take what you need, no minimum or maximum; paternity leave was 6 weeks when my daughter was born, I think it is four weeks now
