I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of resource, comfortable and respectful workplace

Cons

Frequent restructuring due to various changes in management and pending expiration of patented drugs. Heavy politics in some dept.

Advice to Management

Should have a (better) long-term plan for the future and eliminate the current dept head's controlled annual performance review and allow project's team members or leaders to review the employee's performance.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits
    Building a solid pipeline of products
    Nice friendly working environment
    Smart people who want to make a difference

    Cons

    Political organization, need to know what people are saying about you behind your back. If you disagree with direction or ideas you may be seen as a "problem" and not a team player unless you have a mgr who is willing to back you up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with colleagues. If you have a concern, or have issues bring it up and discuss with your employee.
    Mgt needs to live the desired culture, not just send out memos and talk about it.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked with incredibly talented people who were smart and cared about improving people's health.

    Cons

    The leadership of the company is 100% solely beholden to the shareholder, no one else matters. Managers don't care about their employees because at any moment they could be asked to lay them off. Top performers be damned.
