    Pros

    Good pay. Benefits are okay. Cafeteria improved. There are a handful of good managers who do care about their employees and who are very involved in what is going on at the site.

    Cons

    The problem with Pfizer (formally Hospira) is that the site keeps trying to initiate new processes to fix problems but they keep failing. Too many people are reluctant to change and too many managers/supervisors don't care enough. I worked under a team lead who was incompetent....too emotional, too immature, too petty. It's a very big site and so many people are just not on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone needs to be at least attempt to be on board to making improvements and if they aren't, they need to be held accountable. Also, hire team leads that will actually LEAD...it doesn't take a genius to report on other people's work. You need team leads that will actively help and not play around online shopping all day.

    I have been working at Hospira full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is very knowleadgle people that work at this site. Location of the site one of the best in Texas

    Cons

    There are a couple of staff members that are very unprofessional, vocal , they yell at people and do not understand that they need to be professional and not think because they have a PhD gives them the right to treat people like, they need to remeber that they live in the US not from the country they came from India

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to destructive behaviors from staff members that are abrasive. HR department knows about it, and dont do anything.

    I worked at Hospira full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Dysfunctional legacy Hospira management at the McPherson site. The McPherson site has a new Pfizer site lead but the majority of the management is legacy Hospira. Hospira created a dysfunctional corporate culture which has resulted in serious compliance deficiencies with all the major global regulatory agencies. Departmental managers are focused on covering up problems rather than fixing them.

    The McPherson site has the second-worst safety record in the entire Pfizer global network. Legacy Hospira management focuses on coercing long work hours from their employees at the expense of safety.

    It is apparently commonplace at the McPherson site for management to lie to employees and prospective employees regarding work conditions, work hours, company policies regarding sick time, and the serious risk that the site will be shut down by the FDA for violations. Management lied to me regarding company policy on sick time when I had to go for a medically-necessary outpatient treatment. In addition, what I was told when I interviewed bore no resemblance to what I found when I started work there.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your prospective employees.
