Showcasing our Scientists and Sites
We’re moving at the speed of science – and to do so, we need to fill our talent pipeline with impressive scientists. Starting in the second half of 2021, we launched a comprehensive campaign with the goal of recruiting and filling positions across our Pfizer Research and Development sites, with a focus on Worldwide Research and Development (WRD) and Global Product Development (GPD) roles.
Through video storytelling, we featured six of our R&D sites across the United States: Pearl River, New York, St. Louis, Missouri, Andover, Massachusetts, Groton, Connecticut, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and La Jolla, California. We showcased both the cutting-edge facilities and our colleagues’ personal stories, featuring three colleagues in each location.
These videos were shared externally on our corporate social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube – through the colleague engagement platform, Conversation Leaders, and our internal site, PfizerWorld. Multiple versions of sizes and lengths of the videos were created to optimize viewership. This robust media campaign also featured local strategies like print publication ads and e-billboards, and global tactics like ads with music and television streaming platforms.
Vidia Roopchand, Principal Scientist at Pearl River
“The cultural diversity on the Pfizer campus has allowed us to have different perspectives in our approach to vaccines research. We also have great diversity in our scientific backgrounds, and when those two come together, we have a very unique way of approaching problems. I think we all come to work with one purpose in mind, and that is to make vaccines that will make the world a better place.”
Eli Reiser, Senior Associate Scientist at St. Louis
“One of Pfizer’s core values is excellence and there’s a lot of support for it, but another one is courage and that willingness to speak up and say, ‘Hey, I disagree’. I have felt comfortable doing that since I started, and the whole team is really open to that. We really are supporting each other and trying to improve our science in every way.”
Pooja Arora, Director, Global Chemistry, Manufacturing, & Controls at Andover
“When I was making a decision to go into academia versus industry, I thought about the pharmaceutical industry, because what better way to implement your knowledge and skills than to develop medicines that are expected to make a positive impact on the lives of patients.”
Aran Hubbell, Senior Scientist at Groton
“What I think is most impressive about Pfizer Groton is the number of experts we have. I learned that learning never stops.”
Maria Galou-Lameyer, Head of Biotherapeutics Assay Development at Kendall Square
“Pfizer is a powerhouse of experts. What you find here in Kendall Square, it’s kind of really unique in the world. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go everybody is talking science. When I saw that I was like ‘I need to be here’.”
