Pros

Legacy Wyeth employee, so I actually identify more with Wyeth than Pfizer. As Wyeth, very fair pay and benefits. Room for advancement and excellent work environment. Overall very satisfied as a Wyeth employee.

Cons

The biggest downside was being the victim of downsizing due to the Pfizer/Wyeth merger. I never got a full sense of the Pfizer downsides otherwise.

Advice to Management

Consider talent over sheer headcount when reducing staff. The knowledgeable and experienced co-workers that I saw leaving due to the merger was astounding.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation and benefits - though benefits are being reduced
    Interresting and challenging work

    Cons

    Herd and yes-man mentality creeping in
    Promotion and retention is becoming more and more based on who you know and not compentency - this has historically been an issue but is more noticable as economic conditions require cutbacks

    Advice to Management

    At the most senior levels, management seems to the have the right idea - balancing long and short term results, bringing in results focused performers, etc - but this gives way to political in-fighting as you move down toward middle management. A hard look is needed as how the company wants to manage itself going forward and what type of person should be representing the company on a local level.

    Retain compentent employees who display integrigy and leadship. Replace the ones that don't.


  2. "Applied for the job"

    Pros

    The pay and benefits package offered were great and I was looking forward to the professional atmosphere. The opportunities to advance were very high.

    Cons

    You will have to put up with a lot of doctors who think they are better than you and you have to also put up with nosey nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within.
