Employer Profile


At Pfizer, we apply science and our global resources to bring treatments and therapies to people all over the globe. Every day, our colleagues come to work advance new therapies,  prevent disease, drive remission, with the ultimate goal of finding cures for some of the most devastating diseases of our time. For more than 170 years, we’ve worked to make a difference for all who rely on us.

At its heart, Pfizer is a science-based company with a single purpose:  Breakthroughs that change patients’ lives.  With a purpose this powerful, it’s no wonder that some of the most driven scientists and clinicians in the world choose to do their life’s passion at Pfizer.  Whether that passion is focused on translating a deep understanding of biology into potentially transformative therapies for patients, or on advancing innovative approaches to more patient-friendly clinical trials, we arm our colleagues with the resources, technology, and facilities they need to solve some of the world’s most complex health challenges.

Pfizer is one of the largest investors in R&D with a 2018 R&D investment of approximately $8 billion. This investment has yielded what we believe is one of the strongest pipelines Pfizer has seen in decades. Leveraging Pfizer’s strengths, such as its world-class small molecule platform, end-to-end biologics and vaccines capabilities we are working to address unmet patient needs in five core therapeutic areas: Oncology, Rare Disease, Inflammation and Immunology, Internal Medicine, and Vaccines. Our internal work in these areas spans the R&D spectrum from early discovery to late-stage development, while also exploring external opportunities in breaking areas of science.

Pfizer’s core R&D sites are located in key research hubs around the country, including Cambridge and Andover, MA, La Jolla, CA, Pearl River, NY, Groton, CT, St. Louis, MO, and the North Carolina Research Triangle.  Our connectivity in these centers of scientific excellence allow us to collaborate across the entire ecosystem – partnering with academia, biotech, medical centers, government, patients, venture capital and others – to help shape the health innovation environment.

We encourage you to explore opportunities to join Pfizer where you can play a role in advancing science to significantly improve the lives of patients around the world.  To learn more about careers at Pfizer visit
