    I have been working at Pfizer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture of the Pearl River campus is very inviting. The benefits are incredible and the pay is competitive because they offer you both a yearly bonus and raise.

    Cons

    Unfortunately with the timing of my original manager leaving and the large amount of work to be done on my team, my training fell through the cracks and lead to a large amount of issues.

    Advice to Management

    I feel as if the management, both my direct manager and the supervisor of the team I was on, did a good job. While I do feel that there were communication errors and inflated expectations, there was absolutely no malicious intent from the management.
