Under the guise of emphasizing "networking" and "relationship building", the company blatently rewards those who spend their time socializing with friends rather than doing a good job. The management continually reassures women that "their time will come" yet has no committment to making this a reality. The work/life balance is great, mostly because people here do not care about a good job- as long as you are "friendly" and don't "rock the boat" you will be fine in your job. Just don't think you're ever gonna move up the ladder.
I have been with this company for 10 years and work with many women of which the majority are working mothers in my area. Depending on the department you work in the flexibility can be great. Unfortunately as a healthcare company, we continue to pull back on our maternity/family leave benefits and do not often provide flexible work arrangements for those not in the sales organization. The company's mission is to recruit and maintain top talent. Reducing and suspending these types of benefits will alienate top female talent.
If you care about doing a good job, you must possess and exercise extremely proficient communication skills. I am referring to those that enable you to allow decision making males to believe that some ideas are theirs and be willing to provide the PowerPoint or whatever is required to get that idea approved.
I know, suck it up, pay it forward and hope it comes back to you someday. It's a man's world at Pfizer.
Job Satisfaction Level
If they worked for honest Women who were genuinely seeking to support furthering their career.
I worked here for 14 years and it was a dream company at first but with the ever changing economy it became a tumultuous environment in terms of career uncertainty overall, it is a wonderful company and supportive of working moms.
