Large Company, Family Atmosphere

Specialist (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I worked at Wyeth full-time for more than 8 years

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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great opportunities for growth

Analyst (Former Employee)
Collegeville, PA (US)

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

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.

The best place to work for

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

I worked at Wyeth full-time for more than 10 years

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

Excellent Experience

A company that would keep you for a long time.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsThe projects that I worked on were pretty top notch. Also the salaries were not excellent but the benefits definitely made up for that. The healthplan and flexible spending account was superb. The company store had many discounts on every day items.

ConsIt was not the most "cutting edge" company.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should never have sold us to Pfizer

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
