Pfizer Inc. McPherson Kansas Plant - Hostile work place. Unprofessional environment. Culture of bur buddies instead of best talents and ideas.
Quality Operation, Technical Service (Current Employee) –  McPherson, KSNovember 19, 2018
McPherson Kansas plant is not a good place to work. Unprofessional culture. Only local incompetent peoples are in supervisors and managers levels positions. Hiring and promotion are based on behaviors/bar buddy search. Locals and dirty politics survives over hard work, qualification and talent.
Pros
Can be a first job to get 6 months of experience before finding good professional place to work, cheap living const in McPherson Kansas.
Cons
Bad and hostile work culture, incompetent local peoples are only hired and promoted to management roles, qualification and talent are overlooked for hiring and promotions.

disorganized, top heavy, myopic, deaf
Study Director/Principal Investigator (Former Employee) –  Groton, CTNovember 19, 2018
Culture is one of fear and loathing. There is a sense of learned helplessness among many on the lower rungs. Anyone who dares color outside the lines is punished. It is a one direction operation where orders come from the top and there is no one up there listening to anything that is happening on the ground.
Pros
really good benefits
Cons
culture is demoralizing

It's a living

They pay well at first but the raises are poor. The paid time off is awesome. Great benefits! Production jobs are boring and not much for advancement.
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
Treated like dirt, raises don't keep up of cost of living

Pfizer is good place to work. Excellent benefits. A little too rigid.
Vaccines Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Midland, TXNovember 17, 2018
A typical day at work includes calling on prioritized customers and educating them on our product and services. Increasing market share for branded products.

Pfizer leadership, for the most part, is very good. Emphasis on strategic goals. Excellent marketing materials.

Workplace culture is OK not great. Hard to get things done at Pfizer. Too many layers of decision making.

Hardest part of job is marketing older products to customers who have heard the message a 1,000 times. Coming up with something new to share is a challenge.

Autonomy and freedom is the most enjoyable part of the job.

I worked in the laboratory and the managers were very communicative and understanding. The hours were flexible & vacation was nice! I would have continued working for Pfizer if it wasn't located in Kansas.

Summary
National Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 15, 2018
Very political. Good pay. Very unstable employment. A brand drug company. Typical big pharma in many ways, narrowly defined roles where getting broad based support is almost impossible to drive any divisional initiatives.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Constant turnover

Senior Group Leader (Current Employee) –  Lake Forest, ILNovember 14, 2018
Pfizer is a very good company to work for. The culture is strong and they walk the talk. Benefits are good. But with Pharma, no job is secure. Depending on your manager, there are lots of development and career growth opportunities.

Enjoyed Time There
District Manager (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LA and Knoxville, TNNovember 13, 2018
While its been many years since I've been at Pfizer, I enjoyed career advancement opportunities and moved 5 times for promotional opportunities, or for retention in new assignments. Unfortunately, the last three years there saw the start of numerous restructuring and downsizings that have plagued the industry the last 15 years.
Pros
Good Products, Talented People
Cons
Constant Change and Restructure/Layoff threats
