    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pretty competitive base salary levels
    Excellent benefits and policies
    Work from home arrangements available at least once per week, if not more, in most groups
    Excellent name/brand recognition

    Cons

    Extremely political culture
    Hard to tell where you really stand and if you're "in"
    Only those who are in the know get promoted - not transparent process
    Constant fear of the next round of layoffs creates a toxic environment full of finger pointing and self-serving behaviors.
    Culture is not team-oriented
    Bonus program doesn't go very far down in the organization

    Advice to Management

    Implement a variable pay plan that includes more mid level colleagues to encourage engagement
    Wrap up the constant restructuring and layoffs as quickly as possible
    Encourage a more transparent promotion system and career path planning
