    I worked at Pfizer full-time

    Pros

    Very nice, friendly and supportive teams. Good place to start and develop your-in-house career. Biggest and best pharma company out there. Legal counsel plays critical role in business decisions.

    Cons

    Promotions, from what I can gather, can take awhile -- but this is true for most in-house positions at major multinational companies

    Advice to Management

    Work more closely with entering lawyers and other employees to try to make them visible to the Board and upper level-management.
