I have been working at Merck full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Merck offers top of the line benefits, excellent salary, and an inclusive work environment. It's an excellent company to work for and, having worked for several other pharmaceutical, this is the best.
It's quite hard to get into a permanent role in any large pharma company anymore. They're mostly looking for contractors below the management level positions, and career development is slow. These aren't so much problems with Merck as they are endemic of the industry in general.
Advice to Management
None currently-I don't have much interaction with senior leadership and my current direct supervisor and I have a good rapport.
