Great place to work but they laid off half the workforce.
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) –  Collegeville, PAJuly 16, 2018
Only worked for them from 2009-2012 due to being laid off after they bought out Wyeth. Wyeth was a great place to work as they were family oriented. When Wyeth moved to Collegeville I only lived 2 miles away.
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
Laying off the workforce and no job security

Operator 1 (Former Employee) –  Charles City, IAJuly 15, 2018

Pros
Good Insurance
Cons

Great place to work. Team work and well paid. 6 days of work with double paid overtime. They are concern about safety. They concern about their employees’ health too. The security is great. No one get in the building if they’re not and employee or got an appointment with a supervior or a manager.

Great Benefits but you’re always afraid you’re going to lose your job
Professional Healthcare Representative (Former Employee) –  ColoradoJuly 13, 2018
Pfizer is a great place to work if you are young, aggressive and prepared to lose your job as soon as you aren’t #1 in Sales. Once you’ve been there 10 years, if you haven’t expressed that you want to move up to management, you are sweating the lay offs which happen every October (effective for Christmas time). It’s all about the bottom line. If you’re in the top 1% in Sales you’re golden. Be ready for the pressure.
Pros
Benefits, salary and vacation time
Cons
Stressful, no work life balance, aggressive managers

Typical Big Pharma, but it is evolving and coming back
Director, Global Marketing, XELJANZ (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 13, 2018
Sterile work environment where "ants marching" is an appropriate phrase. I will say that, although EXEC management is not visible, nor doe they communicate, they have created opportunities for me to improve my skill set and become a better marketer.
Pros
opportunities to develop, fairly secure
Cons
sterile, compensation is average at best

Decent place for employment
Formulation Operator (Current Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIJuly 11, 2018
Pfizer is a pretty good company to work for as long as you don't mind working every other weekend. If you are on an off shift it can take years to get to first. The raises are not the best. I've been here 6 years and there are people coming in off the street starting out what I make now even though they have no experience. The benefits here are pretty good.
Pros
Benifits, healthcare, decent breaks
Cons
advancment, raises

Initially loved job then got bought by Pfizer
Professional Healthcare Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 10, 2018
Great colleagues, reorganization occurred aproximately every 18 months so typically get a new manager with each reorg. If you get a good manager - job is great; if poor manager - job sucked. Company too big, you are only known by your employee id. Great 401k, health benefits and stock options. Great company to work for right out of college. You get great training and company recognition to put on resume. Good luck

Unfortunately in the elearning development arena there was little practical experience among the full time employees, so guidance was at a minimum - as was an understanding of the challenges in meeting goals and deadlines.

The job itself was fun and challenging but the cons definitely outweighed the pros. Felt like job security wasn't there and never felt truly supportive by my managers.
