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.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits: more vacation time than most companies offer.
    Higher salary than other companies
    Interesting work
    If you can prove your worth, easy to move up in the company

    Cons

    Best to negotiate the highest salary before being hired. Otherwise, you'll always be at the low end of the pay scale for the position.
