Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Manager Human Resources

I have been working at Pfizer full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I love working at Pfizer because from the top to the bottom, the main focus are the patients. Throughout the pandemic, the CEO and management ensured all colleagues and contractors were safe. There... is so much talent throughout the entire company and many opportunities to learn. My mind is always active even though some of us have been remote.

Cons

Workload can be overwhelming at times and balance of work needs to be balanced. As long as you speak up and talk to management, they do find ways to get us extra support. Since it is so competitive... in the job market, it can take longer to get more qualified support.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on colleagues and ensure mentoring is available.
