Merck - an opinion

Medical Writer (Current Employee)
Phila, PA

ProsGood pay and benefits, flexible work schedules, well known company.

ConsCurrent environment surrounding pharmaceutical companies, especially Merck. The company is so big that there's a rather sterile, impersonal feel to working here. Morale is not good at the moment, but I think that the same is true of the entire pharmaceutical industry these days.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to know that the communication in this company needs to be improved. We are too silo-ed; frequently one hand does not know what the other hand is doing. Many people were laid off recently, yet the company helicopter still flies between the facilities to bring execs to meetings. Why not just video conference?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
