Quality Control Sample Management Analyst (Current Employee) –  Clondalkin, County Dublin7 December 2016
Pfizer is so large, each department is an island unto itself. What is praised as initiative in one area may get you into hot water in another.

For CPL contractors, you are more of a problem than an asset. They do not care about well being.

The people I worked with were very approachable and helpful. However, I was lucky and I have seen other labs which are not like that.
Pros
Some free lunches for special occasions
Cons
Contractors treated like second class citizens by Pfizer.

Pleasant place to work, great experience
Procurement Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Dublin17 November 2016
Work Monday to Friday semi-formal environment with casual Fridays. Come in start work at 7:30 early shift or 8:30 normal. 8 hour days and you go home an hour early on Fridays. You get a 45 minute lunch break between 12:00 and 14:00.

I learned a lot about Procurement and the Procure to Pay (P2P) process while I was here including the tools Ariba and SAP.

The work was repetitive but the colleagues make the working environment pleasant and the salary is decent.

There is a canteen but the food is not subsidised.

There are a few company days spread throughout the year to promote the company culture.

the work is mostly outsourced by agency on 2 year contract basis.
Not much chance for Advancement/Permanency.

Overall great experience
Pros
colleagues, salary, comapny days
Cons
pricy canteen, very slim chance for Job Advancement/Permanency
