    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pfizer for more than a year

    Pros

    Good culture at times. Variety of working environments available with experienced emplyees to learn from. Fair working hours for most. With good work/life balance. Good breakfast on site at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Contractors are looked at as second class employees compared to full time employees. Unrealistic deadlines are set frequently and expected to be met. There is a strong blame culture on site, if anything goes wrong fingers are pointed at everyone involved. Not everyone contributes to this of course, but in general this seems to happen.
