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 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.

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-.

I absolutely love my job and couldn't ask for a better situation. I think the experience varies greatly between different departments/groups, but I have a lot of flexibility, supportive management, and great team members. I am also given plenty of development opportunities.

I worked here for 7 years. Since the acquisition, Pfizer took away a lot of benefits and slashed the workforce in half. People are overworked and are asked to wear too many hats now. Quality of work is impacted due to the slash in workforce.

I have worked here for almost 10 years and have felt challenged in every role I have had. I feel there is equality among men and women and the culture is quite appealing.

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.

    Maybe. Great opportunities for women until middle management--dearth of women in more senior positions, and the ones that are there tend to leave.
