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

Pros

Pfizer's compensation is remarkable.
Scale is second to none.
Leading edge compared to other companies (pharma and non-pharma)
Amazing training and level of responsibility

Cons

Continuous Downsizing
Impression that Pfizer people do not do "hands-on" work by other companies
Spoiled due to outstanding salary and benefits
Available roles, outside the company, much narrower in scope, responsibility, compensation

Advice to Management

The company has been floundering with no continuous strategy for the past 3 CEOs. BIG Pharma (sell off consumers), Diversity (buy consumer products), BIG Pharma (sell of other divisions). How can an organization function with such confusion, it cannot.

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

    Pros

    Big company with good benefits

    Cons

    The company has declined and no longer is a good place to work. There are more layoffs than opportunities, promotions are unclear and often frozen. Jobs internally are difficult to get and often determined in advance. There is no serious development or growth at this company anymore and I have been here over ten years.

    Advice to Management

    I dont know what to say, the business environment is tough but the company just seems to cut doe'rs and keep the fat, outsource knowledge and skills and just become overseers. This used to be a great place to be...
