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

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, terrific work environment, exciting projects with stimulating team members made working at Pfizer in Groton/New London and in NYC an absolute pleasure. Good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Very little room for career development or advancement; constant acquisitions and reorganisations accompanied by large numbers of lay-offs lowered morale in recent years. Pfizer is now no longer the blue ribbon company it used to be and employees are starting to walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics and listen to the people on the ground working at the "Coal Face". Pfizer teams working in drug development and with the FDA know what is required to succeed. Outsourcing this work and reducing Pfizer headcount may well, in the short term, cut costs, however the medium to long term risks of a fully outsourced drug development model could be a real concern, especially for a company who is already working under an FDA warning notice.


  2. "A comfortable place to work"

    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.
