      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

      Advice to Management

      Remove the complex processes and promote your staff or you will lose talent

          I worked at Pfizer full-time (Less than a year)

          Pros

          Have recently allowed employees to work from home every so often.. Introduced Summer hours where you can leave at 3.00 pm on Fridays. Great collaboration within the team to get the work done.

          Cons

          Managers don't really manage. No real opportunities for further advancement.

          Advice to Management

          Be more inclusive with the team - don't isolate them.

          Pros

          Big global company, lots of opportunities abroad for work.

          Cons

          job security due to cost cutting. Pfizer is taking over a lot of companies which is resulting in site closures and job cuts.
