Pros

Depending on your group you can spend a good bit of time doing research that interests you that may not have immediate impact on the company's bottom-line. Excellent resources world-wide with many experts available.

Cons

Bureaucracy begets bureaucracy. With Merck the process is most important, doing quality work while being frugal is less so. They let you spend the money you need to spend and more as long as you follow the steps. They are also getting a little short-sided in projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open to projects that you don't expect to become a product immediately. Just because marketing thinks it should or shouldn't be done should not be the only deciding factor when funding a project. Sometimes it takes time to "find" the best approach and short-sided thinking doesn't help that process.
