    I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 10 years)


    Strong focus on doing what"s right and helping patients.


    Compensation is low, demands are high and HR is only interested in trying to tell people how good they have it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change end of year evaluation process to allow outstanding performance to be rewarded. The current system undermines team work when only one or two people can be seen as the "winners" and everyone else is rated as "meets expectations" or even "below expectations" to meet a predefined curve.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Merck.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was average, but they wanted to know about you as a scientist and a person. It took the whole day included several one-on-one and group interviews (team mates). There was a scientific presentations followed by loads of questions (this is the main assessment part I guess). They liked to be asked questions as well.
