    I have been working at Pfizer Ireland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Worked in GFS. Young workforce, plenty of opportunity to make friends. - Management are very friendly and approachable - opportunity for promotion - good atmosphere

    Cons

    - The level of micromanagement is quite high from what I could see. There isn't much independent thinking, everything is literally done by the book. There isn't much delegation of responsibility. - Work (Other than projects) can become monotmous or boring month on month

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think management do a good job, very very nice people.

    Pros

    Health insurance pension, 2 company days

    Cons

    Management have there own little clips with some employing their best friends. Hard to believe the job was on merit even though that may have been the case. This can lead to a toxic environment

    Advice to Management

    Be less secretive and more honest, there are some really good managers but sometimes the bad apples out shadow or even spoil the good ones
