    I have been working at Pfizer Ireland full-time

    Pros

    Nice People to work with Most of the work is interesting Good learnings and skill development (if low experience) Great perks

    Cons

    Work life balance is bad. (sink or swim mentality) Tidying other peoples messes (normal but its the lack of respect from the people making the mistakes, which occur again and again that makes it more miserable to clean up) Most managers are out for themselves (all have upward progression thoughts and none for the current job or people in the trenches...unless it starts looks bad on them) High turn over, alot of new graduates, leading to more mistakes and more time to train people over and over. (taking more time to complete)
