Culture and Values
My first job after graduating was working for Actalent as an environmental monitoring technician at Pfizer. The initial phase of training provided by Pfizer's staff was comprehensive and took me about 3 months to complete. The majority of the training was done by completing virtual modules asynchronously along with attending several scheduled in-person demonstrations. Once I was granted access to MODA-FDC, I was assigned a location to begin basic environmental sampling. The workload varied depending on production and sampling schedule rotation. I was able to complete my weekly sampling requirements early in the week to accommodate for emergency testing and unforeseen events. The equipment used to for monitoring broke down frequently and could interfere with the results/ reporting of environmental tests. SOP, SSR, and maps were documents used to determine where, when and how to conduct testing, but could sometimes be outdated or difficult to locate without an ID number.

Pros and Cons
good coffee, occasional recreation events, career development opportunities,
poor management, high turnover rate, toxic social environment, poor adherence to safety guidelines
