    I worked at Pfizer full-time

    Pros

    Mediocre Compensation, Decent base salary

    Cons

    If one calculates their hourly wage with respect to the hours they work, the total compensation is actually very low compared to the industry. In addition, the addition of compensation time for constantly working overtime is thrown out by leadership, despite leadership themselves coming to work late and leaving earlier than everyone else. The amount of backstabbing is beyond reproach. Leaders will go as far as to fabricate false , yet negative information to their colleagues, and this results in lower level colleagues doing the same via gossip, and going as far as to "spying" on each other for managers. It does not matter how well your work ethic is, or how well you get along with the overwhelming majority of the people. The smaller "clique," along with the managers will find a way to bring you down and give you a miserable time if they felt you have wronged them in the slightest ways. Even if you challenge (courteously and politely, of course), on their "science," or whatever science they claim. Location is well...not good, and because of this, talented and bright individuals are a scarcity. Anyone who has those qualities has already left for other opportunities outside of the area. During candidate interviews, managers will go as far as to claiming that very few people have left, despite extremely large troves leaving. As a final note, sexual harassment is not uncommon there, and oftentimes goes unpunished for long periods of time. An individual was finally fired for constantly sexually harassing women across multiple groups, but has been doing it for 20+ years before his termination. Everyone at the site who was aware of the individual was well aware of his behavior.
