I have been working at Pfizer full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits: more vacation time than most companies offer.
Higher salary than other companies
Interesting work
If you can prove your worth, easy to move up in the company

Cons

Best to negotiate the highest salary before being hired. Otherwise, you'll always be at the low end of the pay scale for the position.

    I worked at Pfizer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, terrific work environment, exciting projects with stimulating team members made working at Pfizer in Groton/New London and in NYC an absolute pleasure. Good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Very little room for career development or advancement; constant acquisitions and reorganisations accompanied by large numbers of lay-offs lowered morale in recent years. Pfizer is now no longer the blue ribbon company it used to be and employees are starting to walk away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics and listen to the people on the ground working at the "Coal Face". Pfizer teams working in drug development and with the FDA know what is required to succeed. Outsourcing this work and reducing Pfizer headcount may well, in the short term, cut costs, however the medium to long term risks of a fully outsourced drug development model could be a real concern, especially for a company who is already working under an FDA warning notice.
