Pfizer’s OWNIT! Culture
Through Pfizer’s shared mission to impact global health, Pfizer has built a unique OWNIT! culture to empower you to play your part in each of Pfizer’s life-changing achievements.

Professional Development at Pfizer
Pfizer’s belief that every person matters is also what proves their commitment to you.

Managers are also encouraged to provide frequent performance feedback instead of relying solely on yearly evaluations. From here, you’ll be inspired to refine – and redefine – your personal and professional goals.

Pfizer’s community is one of the greatest building aspects about their culture. And their Diversity and Inclusion team ensures that every colleague experiences a fair and supportive environment.
