I worked at Pfizer as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

It was nice to be able to connect with people across several industries. In my position, I wasn't required to work every weekend.

Cons

Unstable work environment. Most people within the company, (at most locations,) know that they are in constant danger of being laid off. I was asked to leave a stable job to work at Pfizer, so I made a point to ask during the interview stage if my position was secure. I was told it was, though I found out 2 weeks after starting that it wasn't, then was laid off a year later.
