Incredible opportunity to sharpen my Leadership skills. Seeing individuals evolve into world class Team was priceless!
DISTRICT MANAGER (Former Employee), Kansas, Nebraska, MissouriMay 6, 2015
Pros: Coaching and developing your representatives, developing both their strengths and their developmental areas, having the honor to watch them do things they thought impossible, knowing that a drug you have significantly impacts, the patients life, quality of life and families and friends of the patient.
Cons: Product patents. Patent life dictates pricing and employment.
Typical day centered around the development of each representative as well as developing 10 incredibly talented individuals into an extremely effective, dynamic and cohesive high performing Team.

Holding my Team accountable for executing and successfully accomplishing the goals, objectives and imperatives which were created as a Team.

Typically had 4 days in the field and an office day.

Key Learnings:
The faster you develop your people into a Team the easier it is to exceed revenue goals. As a Leader, communicating effectively from the very first day on is key to success. Setting expectations, creating a dynamic culture, identifying and effectively using towering strengths from each person accelerates the Teams effectiveness in key areas such as product and/or disease state knowledge, competitive advantages, networking, handling objectives, effective openers and questions. Lastly, I believe you should have a strong representative who will challenge your decisions relative to strategic initiatives, resource allocation and problem solving keeps my analytical, messaging, targeting and team dynamics skill sets sharp.

The hardest part of the job was balancing the time you must have with your Team and the onslaught of emails, phone calls, messages and the time required to make certain you're not only executing your initiatives. You have to determine the growth, rate of growth and modify plans as necessary. It becomes a challenge when you have 5 products for 5 different disease states and the 5 disease teams you're working with.

Bottom line, it's all about – more... effective planning, preparation, execution and evaluation.....Time Management.

Most enjoyable part of the job is when the company drops 5 people from different divisions into your Team and watching them become excited about helping others, truly care for each other, and transform into nationally award winning Team who truly enjoyed the journey as well.

Everything succeeds or fails based on Leadership. Outstanding and Effective Leadership raises the bar for the rest of the organization. – less

Analytical Scientist (Current Employee), Kalamazoo, MIMay 6, 2015
I'm impressed by Pfizer's culture and general treatment of employees. There's purposeful and deliberate distinctions (not in a negative way, just in a real-world way) between contractors and colleagues but from what I've seen, and for the right opportunity, I want to be a colleague.

Raw Material Handler (Current Employee), Carlisle, PAApril 30, 2015
Pros: Vacation, Holidays and Health care
Cons: Lots of lifting
Typically were are very busy, lots of physical work. Constant moving to get the days work completed. I have learned the importance of change made to a days work schedule. Also how the plants operation works starting at the receiving threw each department to the finished goods. Management is working hard for new expansions to the company. The co workers all get along and work together. The hardest part of the job is the amount of lifting that is done in the department I work in. The enjoyable part of the job is moving around doing different task threw out the day and investigating any issue that may arise. I enjoy ordering whats needed for the work day, I also like to jump in and help whom ever needs help to get the job done

Administrative Asst. I - Medical Affairs (Former Employee), Morris Plains, NJApril 23, 2015
Pros: All benefits, great cafeteria food & setting, courteous staff, overtime pay, vacations, outside luncheons and get-togethers.
Cons: Constant pressure to complete tasks.
During my tenure with Prudential, I was promoted from the Roseland, NJ offices (Death & Disability Claims) to the Trade Room in Newark, NJ.

There was added pressure to perform the duties on the trade floor, since colleagues were in constant contact with the various brokerage firms in NYC and internationally. Great colleagues and working environment.
