    Large Company, Family Atmosphere

    Specialist (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsAlthough very large, the company found a way to foster cooperative behavior. Good training. Smart people. Organized and professional.

    ConsLow-growth at the time meant that there was less opportunity to progress in career. At times, one might wish for more flexibility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was far too far down the hierarchy to advise management. I wish them all the best in their future work.

    Great opportunities for growth

    Analyst (Former Employee) Collegeville, PA (US)

    ProsThere 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.

    ConsInconsistent 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The best place to work for

    Customer Service (Former Employee) Carolina, PR (US)

    ProsI 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. My efforts were noticed therefore I got transferred to another department. I enjoyed working there a lot because everyone was friendly and worked as a team.

    ConsNothing to say on this

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in touch with the employees at production and packaging.

    Excellent Experience
