    Pros

    Pfizer is a great place to work because of it's fantastic reputation. They produce some of the most well known and most profitable drugs in the world and research wise, they essentially have unlimited resources.

    Cons

    Management is in their own world as with most biotech companies. The amount of money going through the company is astronomical and management will never tell you where it's going. There is never a legitimate chance to publish your own personal research because it all belongs to Pfizer and it's a money game and besides, you'd never have time to conduct your own personal experiments anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more information to the employees
