    Great work-life balance. The Pfizer OWN IT culture is very important to most colleagues.

    Older company mindset, requires certain standards (number of years of experience) vs work performance and efficiency when looking at promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Continue to innovate in new drug discovery space. Create opportunities for the entry levels to move up quicker if their work is up to par.
