it seems that pharma layoffs continue uninterrupted in the new year, only this time it's not somebody else, it's us. Pfizer submitted WARN notices for 13 people in New York. I'm pretty sure this is just a start, and we can expect many more very soon... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Pfizer
This is not about Pfizer, it's the entire industry, and now Teva is axing 14,000. That's a huge number and when I see those kind of numbers I know it has nothing to do with "restructuring" or "re-organizing." No, they're in serious trouble. A quick... read more
be very careful of pfizer hr. don't assume for one second that they will have your back if you need their help. their main goal is to protect the company, and they've proven it over and over again. i made a mistake once on approaching them about a... read more
Pfizer is way, way too focused only on short-term goals. They've made layoffs a means to a quarterly profits bump end. It's destroying morale and people's faith in the company. What we actually need is a proper vision and long-term strategy. Laying... read more

I left Pfizer recently, couldn't be happier about it... The management has allowed the bullying culture to blossom in the company to the point I couldn't take it anymore... Executives turn a blind eye to all the abhorrent behavior exhibited by many... read more
You can't really be surprised by layoffs at Pfizer. They've demonstrated over and over again how little they think of their employees and how disposable they find us to be. The company has literally laid of entire teams just to make sure the... read more
How many times do we need to be surprised - I am not - do you think that we might have job cuts in NYC.
This will cause a major upheaval and jobs will be lost: https://www.axios.com/pfizer-may-sell-off-its-consumer-health-unit-2495235563.html
That's just my hunch based on what I am seeing as they move people around. With Pfizer and layoffs you never know so I am a bit paranoid, I'd have to admit. Yet, they move more stuff to the Cloud and there is more stuff being outsourced - one can... read more
So they try and keep it quiet....its sad
I thought that we were safe (oh, well - wrong), even tough many competitors were cutting people, do you think we'll cut here in NYC.
How likely is this - are these just rumors or are we talking about massive cuts that can affect Rocky Mount. I left Pfizer in 2011 but I still have some folks who are friends over there. Pfizer and the whole industry is under a lot of pressure and... read more
Good luck to all affected - I am sorry and I hope each of you bounces back very quickly.

That's what they do. Good luck to all of you...
Anyone expects job cuts based on Medivation acquisition
This is not legacy Pfizer, it's acquired distribution centers (Hopsira) - four are on the chopping block, the ops will be consolidated in Pfizers facilities will will take on all work from the four at issue. I think they should be done by 2017 but... read more
Pfizer just notified 151 layoffs in Pearl River being executed this fall (from mid August to the end of October). I know that we should have expected this, but leaving only 50 people in vaccine unit and just till the end of year?! Not sure what will... read more
Any updates here?
What is the likelihood of Pfizer layoffs in New York in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
What do you guys think - are they going to be big redundancies (e.g., back office, finance, marketing, HR) between Pfizer and Allergan if twocompanies merge. Pfizer has been brutal when it comes to mergers as they were eliminating redundancies pretty... read more
Since mid 2000s we cut more than 50,000 positions, we at Pfizer are a job killing machine. The jobs were well paid, middle class, jobs… That’s what you get with all mergers and acquisitions, Pfizer has done a lot of damage to many families. Pharma... read more
Over 80 people located at our CovX Research Unit in San Diego were let go. The plans were released to public in Feb 2013. Pfizer also submitted two WARN Act notes to NY dpt of labor and it was announced that jobs at our plant in Pearl River, NY, will... read more
I worked at Pfizer St. Louis at Maryville Center from 2004 to 2006 on contract. The project manager, initials SAW, made continuous issue with what he though my gender orientation was. He and the project technical lead asked me apropos to nothing... read more
