    I have been working at Pfizer full-time

    Pros

    There is great research being done to provide the latest treatments, advances, medical products to patients. There is also a great work-life balance (of course this depends on manager).

    Cons

    This is a global company, there are many layers in getting things done. Oftentimes, you will interact with your team members virtually. This can make getting the work done difficult sometimes.
