    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BIG pharma experience, great pipeline, decent funding, smart people, good 410k match and stocks longterm incentive. Good name recall for job hunting prospects.

    Cons

    Bureacracy, meetings that never go anywhere, abrasive personalities. Relocation is overpriced and spousal support is a joke. Mentorship is nonexistent. Cambridge location has no permanent office spaces..."free for all". Telework is frowned upon, which is odd because so much of the work can be telework.

    Advice to Management

    Please dont tie people to their managers. It's crazy that one cant apply to other positions or training without the support of the manager. How in thte world do you exactly envision this? Facilitate more efficient meetings.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pfizer (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The first interview was at my university and then I was invited for a final onsite interview a couple of weeks later. There was a facility tour, case study, and several panel interviews- very laid back- the case study was not technical based and more so just to see how you think on your feet.
