I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

People I worked with were good people, and use of technology was cutting edge for big pharma.

Cons

Pfizer really couldn't care less about its employees. After they took over Wyeth, I had two phone conversations with my new boss in over a year, the first of which was to inform me that I would be losing my job sometime that year. Didn't return calls or emails after that.

Advice to Management

Treat your people better. What I described above is unacceptable.

    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, still decent benefits, good work/life balance

    Cons

    Highly political. Lots of groups with overlapping responsibilities.
    Under constant reorganization creating a very disruptive work environment. Good people are leaving if they haven't left already.
    Lack of transparency in promotions.
    Terrible communication from senior management. They say they respect people, but they really don't.
    Struggling to change their culture - please no more slogans.

    Advice to Management

    An internal reorg involving only part of the organization should not take more than 1 year to complete. Need to move faster and be decisive and not so scared to make mistakes that we wind up with a long disruptive process and not much change in the end.
