I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Large organisation with many opportunities to grow.

Cons

Unrelenting pressure to constantly improve efficiencies - you can only improve so much before you start to have a negative impact on the organisation.

Advice to Management

Continue good work to break down organisational silos this will unlock increased efficiencies and further improve communication.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pfizer offers great benefits and fairly competitive salaries. The work that they are doing is really important and it is very satisfying to be engaged in a company that is working to improve people's health & lives. During my tenure with the company I worked with many intelligent and dedicated people. The environment in Groton is much better than the corporate office in NYC. Pfizer also is sensitive to life / work balance.

    Cons

    Over the last several years, due to a failing and unpredictable pipeline, the company has become a lot more risk adverse and nervous. As a result many of the decisions that the company has made are more driven based on the amount of the return rather than doing what is right for the patient. Specifically, Pfizer is less likely to do research in diseases / conditions that will not guarantee a return of at least >/= $1 billion annually. As a result, I found a lot of the research to be more "reegineering" established products than conducting innovative research. Additionally the culture has become a lot more competitive than collaborative; colleagues are more likely to try to take credit for work that they may have not done completely individually themselves. Pfizer used to be a data driven company, now it is a company driven by relationships...it's not what you know but who you know. Many strong executives and middle managers have left the company in recent years...be careful.
