    I worked at Wyeth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was true role clarity in my positions at Wyeth, but there were also many opportunities to join special projects, grow skills and network. Their training programs were fantastic and there was a pleasant work atmosphere. Summer hours were a terrific bonus.

    Cons

    Inconsistent ability to get things done. In some departments, sign-off could be obtained quickly and process implemented successfully. In other areas, there was a lot of bureaucracy and political maneuvering.

    I worked at Wyeth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for a company where I learned to use my skills and obtained an excellent experience. Company showed me that the life of our customers was very important.

    Cons

    Nothing to say on this

    Get in touch with the employees at production and packaging.
