    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, lots of opportunities for extra income.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, poor training, not enough time or resources given to complete tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Better scheduling of tasks must include time to train. Stop stretching your best people too thin without giving them the opportunity to do things correctly. Step in if they need assistance, so that training of new employees can be done in a more time-efficient manner. Treat employees with respect and communicate with them rather than simply writing them up.
