    Pros

    Gym privileges , hours.

    Cons

    There is no cons . Incompetent, not qualified scientists , shouldn’t be working for Pfizer . Not following basic GMP guidelines, state & FDA should inspect the labs. They are people there with GED education& fake degree’s , working as a scientist.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified people with chemistry degrees, not biology degree ,easiest master degree to get. Abbot terminated people who are incompetent , Pfizer should follow that too.
