High work ethics Good culture Location in South Africa, Gauteng Flexibility in working hours Good benefits Opportunity to broaden knowledge Provided opportunity to meet other colleagues in Emea region on an annual basis
diverse day dealing with senior levels down to junior levels. specialised in compensation and benefits which provided an opportunity to learn more about this, the culture tended to be very political. The long hours were difficult with small children. Enjoyed my team
Lack of formal on the job training.The role is challenging,enjoyable but unfortunately not all the duties one is employed to do have been utilised. The culture is hostile due to people or management.Work life balance is none existent.
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.
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.
Diversity, cultutre and owning what you do.OWNIT culture.
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!!!!
Pfizer was exceptional at sales training and keeping its sales force updated about the environment within which they worked. They were above reproach when it can to the law, rules and regulations of the industry and maintained excellent relationships with the Key Opinion Leaders.
lots of experience and support, good innovative product that you can always be proud of, good relationships within the team, team work a key success secret, lots of best practice sharing. Good response from management when one has a concern, Admin work sometimes can be overwhelming and interfere with day to day planning
