    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of resources available to you. Great benefits. The culture has relaxed a lot in the last 5 years or so due to several large acquisition of more "laid back" companies. A large variety of roles to be "promoted into". Good base salaries. New culture calls for "ownership" and open communication (candor)..which is nice.

    Cons

    Bonus structure and other contests (i.e. payouts) have rules that tend to change in the middle of the game. You sometimes feel like you got "screwed" and there's nothing you can do about it. A lot of our blockbuster drugs have got off patent and they are still searching for their "next Lipitor". Because of that "uncertainty", there has been a lot of change/restructuring/job loss in the last several years More to come.

    Advice to Management

    Management has gotten much more realistic in the last several years. They are working on the communication gap from the top level on down. Candor is welcome.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and access to great training when the offer it

    Cons

    Dispose of employees with no rhyme or reason. Reps are just a number and when they buy another company for their pipeline they get rid of all their employees to " right size "

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people you are stepping on today to get you where you want to go...be truthful with your employees
