"It is a extremely tough culture and its hard to get past a point in your career there unless you are cutthroat. There are some women in high positions and they are diverse but the big jobs and promotions for women are far behind those for men. Sometimes the women are part of the problem because its so competitive for what little voice they have."

"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."

"I worked at Pfizer for 3 1/2 years, and there are a lot of women around the company. There are fewer in the more technical departments (IT, Finance, Research), although I don't know that it's because of systematic discrimination. Very few mid-level women seem to make it to the top, and I don't see good programs for mentorship to improve those numbers. In general, it feels like men and women are treated equally."

"I've worked here for about 12 years and during that time, the benefits to women have decreased. (paid maternity went from 5 weeks to 1, part time opportunities in sales were eliminated, flextime/virtual based jobs are few and far between.) If you are strictly career focused, this is really a great company to work for because they work hard to try to diversify management roles and ensure it is an equal opportunity for all...however, if you seek flexibility and work life balance, I would rate it currently a C-."

"The Pfizer plant in Brooklyn is very uncomfortable for a woman. The male co-workers stare at a new female employee like she is a fresh piece of meat, you are not felt welcomed by your female peers either because they feel you are competition. I would say the working environment in that particular plant was very unprofessional."

"Building relationships organically is the best way to get work done. Labyrinthine bureaucracy because it is a very, very, large organization. Most of the senior organization is white male and rather hierarchical. All that being said, I've had some great experiences that have come from demonstrating my brains, work ethic, and diplomacy skills and not because someone "gave" me the opportunity."

"I've been here for over a decade and seen the industry go from booming to shrinking. Benefits have shrunk accordingly, 401K matching is now paid quarterly and if you leave mid-quarter, you forfeit the match for that period, internal awards have practically disappeared, transitioning to different roles/departments is not easy despite earning post-graduate degrees in those areas. You really need to work your network to have an effect and move up."
