Pfizer – Why Work For Us?

Many Paths, One Goal

At Pfizer, we seek to make the world a healthier place. Pfizer welcomes colleagues from every corner of the world – be it the suburbs of the smallest town in America, a village in Germany, or the most sophisticated city in China. We believe every individual’s unique life experience creates the mosaic of Pfizer and helps us make a more positive impact on the world’s health every day. Each position at Pfizer touches and contributes to the success of our business and our world. That’s why, as one of the global leaders in the biopharmaceutical industry, Pfizer is committed to hiring highly qualified candidates for all areas of our business and providing those individuals with access to unparalleled resources and world-class facilities as well as the opportunity to work on groundbreaking research. Pfizer is dedicated to hiring, retaining and inspiring our colleagues by offering some of the best growth opportunities available in the industry.

Pfizer is also consistently recognized as one of the world’s most admired companies. Much of our achievement comes from the importance we place on fulfilling our mission and values, as well as creating an environment that fosters the growth and development of our people.

We Care About You

The flexibility of our benefits allows our colleagues to identify and achieve physical as well as financial goals, which ultimately creates a continuous cycle of well-being. In the same spirit of caring for others, Pfizer values its colleagues and provides excellent benefits and comprehensive support. We believe in providing wellness options from the “local” level by offering a benefits package that can be customized to fit individuals’ needs in different stages of life. The discovery and development of our products depends on the health and happiness of our colleagues and Pfizer makes it a priority to offer colleagues valuable benefits that address each individual’s personal wellness needs.

Supportive Environment, Inspired Colleagues

Pfizer colleagues share a common passion for working in intellectually challenging environments. We thrive on solving some of the most intricate scientific puzzles and creating real-life treatment options for some of the most debilitating diseases in the world. We view public health as not only our job, but our fundamental responsibility as scientists. Having access to groundbreaking science, cutting-edge technological resources, as well as working side-by-side with the industry’s leading scientists allow our colleagues to achieve their most important professional as well as personal goals.

Unique backgrounds, shared passion.

We believe that, collectively, our individual experiences allow us to better meet the needs of our patients and further our work to make the world a healthier place. Pfizer celebrates the array of unique qualities, perspectives and life experiences, which define us as individuals. This includes our visible differences such as gender, age, ethnicity, physical appearance, as well as other characteristics including work styles, sexual orientation, religious or national identity and education.

These traits create a vibrant community and a supportive culture that allows our people, regardless of where they work in the world, to feel valued, involved, supported and respected. And while we celebrate the differences that create the mosaic culture of Pfizer, it is diversity of thought that we value most.

Behind every Pfizer product and program lies an idea that was given the freedom to flourish and a team that challenged conventional ways of thinking to develop something truly innovative. The success of our organization relies on the kind of creative thinking that can only result from a diverse team of individuals, uninhibited to share, create and inspire each other toward the next great idea.

Grow with us

The biopharmaceutical landscape has changed over recent years and Pfizer has navigated these changes by taking advantage of our size and scale while committing to operate with the agility, speed and focus of an entrepreneurial organization. By implementing a strategy targeting emerging markets, we are able to create new opportunities for our existing products and carve out pathways for new discoveries. With this strategy in mind, Pfizer offers not only new pathways for medicinal development, but also new pathways for career advancement. As we continue to grow, you continue to grow.

Serving people in need. Educating communities.

All over the world, Pfizer colleagues are impacting millions of lives through science and service. Our commitment to making the world a healthier place reaches far beyond the laboratory or the boardroom – find out more about how Pfizer colleagues are making a difference.

Global Health Fellows

Pfizer’s Global Health Fellows Program (GHF) is an international corporate volunteer program that places Pfizer colleagues in three to six month assignments with international development organizations designed to address global health issues and improve care for underserved populations.

Infectious Diseases Institute

Pfizer, Accordia Global Health Foundation, Makerere University, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation and other organizations partnered to establish the Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI) in Uganda in 2004. The IDI, a major medical training and research center headquartered within Uganda’s Makerere University, aims to improve health in Africa by training medical professionals and providing them with skills and resources to use in their communities.


ConnectHIV is the Pfizer Foundation’s initiative to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS in the U.S. by providing $7.5 million in grants, technical assistance and networking resources over three years (2007-2009) to AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) in the ten states with the highest number of new AIDS cases nationwide. ASOs that receive support take a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention and treatment among people with HIV/AIDS and high-risk populations.

International Trachoma Initiative

Pfizer is working to help end the suffering and the cycle of poverty caused by this debilitating disease by partnering with the WHO's Alliance for the Global Elimination of Blinding Trachoma by the year 2020 (GET2020) and the International Trachoma Initiative.

Environmental Sustainability

Pfizer is on a green journey, embracing a sustainable tomorrow. We're developing a more integrated and strategic approach to Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) practices and programs, using our substantial global reach to effect improvements in the areas of climate change, product stewardship and access to potable water.

Mobilize Against Malaria

Mobilize Against Malaria (MAM) is Pfizer's signature philanthropic program to combat malaria. MAM is a five-year (2007–2011), $15M initiative announced at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2006, designed to address critical gaps in malaria treatment and education in Ghana, Senegal and Kenya.

The Wall Street Journal recently ranked Pfizer as number 41 out of 150 top employers for young professionals in the US.

Bold ideas. New perspectives. Recent graduates bring more than an education to the table; they bring a passion for their work that can truly change the world.

At Pfizer, we understand the importance of supporting higher education institutions – that’s why we seek out inspired new talent who share our core values and mission of making the world a healthier place. We look to leading academic institutions as an invaluable resource for new hires that share our passion for healthcare and are ready to make contributions to the high science behind Pfizer products and improve the health of patients spanning the globe.

We know that your entry into the marketplace is filled with choices, so we invite you to take a closer look at Pfizer. We understand how important it is to find a position that fits your abilities, interests and ambitions.
