My time at Pfizer was great. I enjoyed working with the farmers. Sadly the merger with SB influenced my job and I was retrenched. I do still think that the company is great.

Best Company I have ever worked for.

I loved working for Wyeth. everyone got along. I also leaned a lot. If I did not leave I would have been promoted. The first company to take me overseas, I went to Paris for my training.


Our boss was the most wonderful and amazing human being. He spoke well and gave positive criticism. A gentleman at all times.


Wyeth was my family from my family.
Pros
Year end functions, Trainings, Team buildings, Gifts
Cons
Cant think of anything

The workplace culture was amazing. There would be times where you would have to put in extra hours at work and that would not go unnoticed. There was an open door policy where you could address issues with your manager. The company took care of its employees - subsidized cafeteria, gym at work, just to name a few.
Pros
Gym at work

Working at Pfizer is all about ownership and responsibility. Our professional environment coupled with our high quality of colleagues enables us to perform optimally on a daily basis. I feel empowered as a Pfizer employee, in which my manager and team encourages me to take chances and work to the best of my ability. Our environment is very inclusive and integrity is one of our key pillars. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with people and data to create strategies for my portfolio. I enjoy the challenge associated with effective marketing. The toughest part of the job is the administration requirements as there is often a large amount of paperwork required. Overall, Pfizer has afforded me the opportunity to develop into a strong brand manager, for which I am extremely grateful.

I am enjoying myself working for Pfizer, the opportunity they have afforded me really did push me to come out of comfort zone. They challenged me so much that I need even more challenge with other companies. They allow personal growth by affording you the opportunity to study further. They invest in ones potential.

The culture in Pfizer allows you to have both work and personal time off so as to ensure that you have work and life balance. Your character and behavioral culture they fuse allows one to be conscious and always keep in mind that there is more to life than working one self to the hospital or just plain overworking.
Pros
Diversity, cultutre and owning what you do.OWNIT culture.
Cons
As finance you might have to work etra hours to get the results.

Calling on doctors and pharmacies on my own and with consultants.
I learned everything about sales at Pfizer and their training was ongoing.

Excellent management team who were willing to assist anyone in need.

Very hard work and excellent team building.

Not bringing enough new products to the marketplace but over the years this improved dramatically.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of an extremely successful team and company,

A typical day is highly productive but also highly rewarding and with great contentment.
I have learnt that working for a productive, fast paced organization need not be at the expense of your sanity and your time spent with family.

Management at Pfizer is awesome, find ways to better the lives of employees without being lax on targets. Management is innovative and are "human" first and managers after.

The culture is great, I am genuinely happy. It feels like my second home.

Meeting targets but I am more than happy to go the extra mile because I am happy. I thrive on challenges because im not discouraged from taking risks and failure is not frowned upon as long as I have learnt from it and improve upon my mistakes. management embraces innovation and individuality and aim to make things fair for everyone. I love working for Pfizer South Africa!!!!
Pros
Benefits and work-life balance
Cons
