    I have been working at Wyeth

    Pros

    A big Global company with lots of room to go up the tree. The salaries levels are good in the market. They are good at developing drugs that work and everyones main focus is on this area.

    Cons

    The Senior Management are very poor, with dictats that are sent but not implemented. Wyeth are the type of company to spend millions on consultants either in a strategic basis or operationally. Not that it matters as the strategic work will not be implemented and the operational work will never be managed properly. There is not enough real work in most departments and a lot of paid attendance. Management throughout the organisation are poor with lack of clearly defined and measured objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work out where you want to be, aim for it and don't change that path every 5 minutes. Give staff some empowerment and get better managers

    I worked at Wyeth full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Although very large, the company found a way to foster cooperative behavior. Good training. Smart people. Organized and professional.

    Cons

    Low-growth at the time meant that there was less opportunity to progress in career. At times, one might wish for more flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was far too far down the hierarchy to advise management. I wish them all the best in their future work.

    I worked at Wyeth full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There was true role clarity in my positions at Wyeth, but there were also many opportunities to join special projects, grow skills and network. Their training programs were fantastic and there was a pleasant work atmosphere. Summer hours were a terrific bonus.

    Cons

    Inconsistent ability to get things done. In some departments, sign-off could be obtained quickly and process implemented successfully. In other areas, there was a lot of bureaucracy and political maneuvering.

    Pros

    I worked for a company where I learned to use my skills and obtained an excellent experience. Company showed me that the life of our customers was very important. My efforts were noticed therefore I got transferred to another department. I enjoyed working there a lot because everyone was friendly and worked as a team.

    Cons

    Nothing to say on this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with the employees at production and packaging.

    Pros

    Wyeth provided a serious production professional atmosphere with excellent resources and opportunities to grow professionally into areas that you proved to be competent.

    Management kept true to their mission, vision and values and was a pleasure to work with others in senior management.
