    Pros

    The salaries are competitive, the benefits are very good and in general the work force is comprised of talented, descent, hardworking individuals. The company historically has always done a good job at providing timely communications on important business decisions and activities. Leadership has also proven itself over and over again by keeping the company healthy and expanding in spite of serious product and manufacturing liabilities. Compared to the industry, Wyeth is a fair place to work.

    Cons

    Wyeth is not the leader in the Pharmaceutical or the Biopharmaceutical fields. The company is neither the biggest nor the strongest in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Youre employees are your most important asset.

    Pros

    Wyeth is a people focused organization. They treat their people fairly and with respect. They communicate well.

    Compension consists of salary, yearly bonuses, stock options, and spot awards.

    Cons

    Their talk about flexible schedules is a little more aggressive than the reality. For lower level within the organization, I have seen part-time and job sharing. For management, there is a perception that you have to been seen to be effective.

    The benefits package is pretty comprehensive with no chage for any Wyeth prescriptions. The downside is that salary deductions for benefits are on a scale with the pay. (i.e. the higher paid, pay more for the same benefits).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing with the communication style. Protect the Wyeth talent as we move into the Phizer world.

    Pros

    Wyeth has a positive and caring culture - one that drives for and rewards strong performance and results. Performance matters. Leadership and employees have embraced the changes needed to build the strong organization.

    Cons

    Wyeth is going through a lot of change at the moment given the pending Pfizer acquisition. This has resulted in distractions and uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the robust communications regarding the integration work and activities. It is crucial in helping employees stay connected and is of great value.

    Pros

    typical large company salary and benefits
    opportunities to move to different groups
    I like Wyeth's values that Ruffalo intituted (like respect for people) and think it made a difference in how people treated each other
    Despite recent public dissatisfaction with Pharma (and what industry/organized institution has not suffered) it is a noble industry, what other one discovers and lauches new drugs to improve your health?

    Cons

    The biggest downside right now is the uncertainty of the Pfizer aquisition and subsequent loss of jobs
    Wyeth has not had the success it anticipated in recent NDA applications, along with generic intrusion for protonix, and soon other big products, as in other pharma, the good old days are over and big pharma will go the way of steel and cars, still there but in much reduced form

    Advice to Management

    for the guys at the top, I hope you enjoy all the cash you get from the buyout (millions of $ and years of salary) while you sold us out
