    I have been working at Pfizer full-time

    Pros

    Honestly the people and management are good and fantastic. There is no 'corp bs' you can truly be yourself and the environment is warm and welcoming. Very flexible with working times and you can achieve a work life balance (bit harder the higher you go however, they are advocates for Work-Life Balance) People actually care about you and their brand

    Cons

    Too many unnecessary processes that could be fixed Lack of growth - their turnover rate is very low and you are competing with people who have a number of years of experience so it is hard to become promoted

    I worked at Pfizer for more than a year

    Pros

    Good security, huge Christmas party at the end of year as incentive for all employees, large lunch room, modern decor, latest business technology, polite staff, nicely dressed staff

    Cons

    Incorrect job title and duties of contractors given to agencies, incorrect pay for contractors compared to other employees in the same role, growing list of duties shouldered on to contractors after dismissing other employees, outsourcing whole departments overseas making communication very difficult, Accounts Department not paying service providers due to outsourcing of Accounts Payable OS, complicated IT system, some contractors were contracted because they knew people inside and were purposely slowing down the speed of the contract to extend it as long as possible, budgets were confusing as decision makers at a higher management level would wipe out huge amounts off the budget for the department without any reason given.
