    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly office atmosphere and a welcoming atitutde towrds new ideas. Continuous improvement is encouraged and sponsored regularly. The benefits packages are of the best offered in the corporate environment. A social, inclusive environment which may extend past the "work friends" relationship.

    Cons

    Many shifts in resource/departmental organization which at times paralyzed real work from being accomplished. Internal political maneuvering is common at the upper and mid-upper levels, sometimes to the detriment of the those reporting up.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must remember that significantly reducing headcount also reduces the remaining employees' quality of life. The balance of work and home does not change easily when any workload is doubled. Employees deserve to have their time be theirs and will leave to where they feel tey are best appreciated.
