    Pros

    We are manufacturing vaccines that will save lives.

    Cons

    Challenges is the ability to make changes on the fly. When working with a company that is managed by the FDA, making changes to manufacturing processes takes a long time in order to obtain approval from the FDA.

    Pros

    Pay is good. Managers and coworkers are friendly and helpful. Good rewards system. Good place to get a job and do the minimum not to get fired. Easy to milk the system.

    Cons

    Managers are powerless to break through stupid policies. Career advancement is for those who are polished and don't rock the boat. Sr. Managers act in their best self interest instead of what's best for Merck.
