    I worked at Pfizer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with talented colleagues, culture, career progression, structured training, travel.

    Cons

    Very competitive colleagues leading to back stabbing. A feeling of always having to watch your back. Less experienced people in more senior roles as they had done x years at a certain level so moved up automatically rather than competency based promotion. Lots of mergers and as a consequence job uncertainty.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Pfizer for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to high tech lab instruments and techniques

    Cons

    Backstabbing staff, openly rude managers, not apologetic, very insecure and micro-managing. Performance is based on likability not job performance and when something goes wrong there is a lot of finger pointing. Everyone is scared to criticize managers therefore no support from fellow colleagues. It was only after i left that i found out the truth. As a person of colour i didn't feel comfortable.
