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

Pros

People, venue, culture, benefits, career paths, opportunities, inclusiveness, open door policy, minority hiring practices, flexibility, salary competitiveness, personal development opportunities.

Cons

Fear implications of constant change (potential job loss, site closures, mergers, downsizing, belt tightening, doing more with less, disparity between executive salary % increases vs. rest of company employees, offshoring. etc, etc, etc).

Advice to Management

What happened to rewarding employees for a job well done? In 2013, stock price goes up, pay for performance goes way down. This is not an incentive for future personal sacrifice.

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

    Pros

    Great experience in the past. Good salaries and benefits. Plenty of ability to learn. Ask and you shall receive as long as it is not upwards.

    Cons

    too much change is choking everyone. Bureaucracy is killing innovation. its easier to get $1m for a project than it is to get $1k. Still are not used to real world budgets and still think bigger is better.

    Advice to Management

    Split the company and free the managers to make choices. Everyone is running scared and not willing to take chances.
