Manager, Global Occupational Health and Wellness (Former Employee) – Peapack, NJ – January 22, 2019
Pfizer is a great company to work for if you value a high salary over work/life balance. Their Pfizer Fridays (half-day on Fridays during day-light savings months) policy is wonderful only if you work in a division where it is observed by management. However, there is a significant disparity in work/life balance from one corporate division to another.
High salaries, great benefits, especially health insurance
Pfizer is a professional workplace that emphasizes education and results. While working there I had the opportunity to learn GxP compliance regulations as applied to Database integrity and reliability.
During my contract term, family issues arose that prevented me from working a regular schedule. Pfizer allowed me to work flexible hours in order to accommodate both workplace and home responsibilities.
Pfizer management is both fair and flexible, highlighting learning and teamwork to bring projects to completion.

I am still friends with so many of the people I worked with. It was a great atmosphere, great amenities and benefits. If your job is not eventually eliminated, you will likely be a lifer and stay until retirement. This industry is very volatile though, so expect changes, a lot of them. It was great experience overall.

Employees get opportunities for development based on their connections, appearances; not by quality or work ethic. All employees are not treated equally in terms of development opportunities and compensation!
contractor from Advanced Clinical (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – January 19, 2019
Pfizer Lake Forest was one of the best, and most collaborative places that I have ever worked. It's great coming to a work place in which you generally like everyone that you work with. It is also a great place to learn, and be challenged.
High tech environment where you can learn a lot, and still not feel over stressed
The company itself is a great place to work and has good salary and benefits. Each department is a silo and only as good as its senior leader. Some are good and some are extremely toxic and create other toxic middle managers which breeds a nasty cut throat culture.
Executive Assistant/Administrative Lead (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 17, 2019
not exactly my cup of tea. very cut throat. very little job security but masked as organizational growth. lots of unofficial leaders, not enough followers. tons of gossip and talking about folks behind their backs.

Sr. Manager, Marketing and Strategy (Former Employee) – Peapack, NJ – January 15, 2019
Pfizer is a great place to work, they take the colleague into account in what they do and strive for a good work/life balance. Their actions are aligned with their mission and it guides the day-to-day business.
Gym, work from home opportunity, people, health benefits.
