    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and other perks. Very competitive pay and straight talking upper management. Overall I really enjoy working at Pfizer.

    Cons

    Overly competitive and recent cuts. Been consolidating work spaces too aggressively. Seems too focused on engineering stock value (tax inversions, etc) than driving the work.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Health insurance, nice site, incentives to make you more active and health conscious. Great support from several services and technologies to make you work more efficiently

    I have been working at Pfizer as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The management on both the technology and business sides are working towards mutual goals; communication may take several attempts however they do persist until everyone understands; there is respect for other ideas and contributions.

    Cons

    There is too much work for the current staffing levels of employees and contractors - progress is slowed and there is more tooling up/down to be really efficient/productive.

    Advice to Management

    Review the staffing levels with an eye to growing the next generation of technical experts now rather than later when it is always crunch time.
