    Senior Principal Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pfizer (Boston, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interviewed with the hiring manager and then with several associate scientists. Each one lasted about 30 min to 1 hr. Very pleasant experience. On site interview consisted of the entire team (>10 people). It was well planned, but long and grueling but pleasant. Everyone was nice and courteous, and knowledgeable. The work culture from what I gathered, seemed ok. People I talked to all said that the like working there. I did well and I was relaxed during the interview process.
