    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Science culture is very strong (I work in R&D) -Very smart people and generally good management (at least in my dept) that allows you the freedom to operate and design your own experiments. -Great benefits and salary is pretty good too -Relatively high departmental budgets that let you buy new "toys" when you need them.

    Cons

    -It's a HUGE company and that slows it down (red-tape, management decision making is slow) -Although good science is done, there is a serious fear of change,especially since merger -Merck as a company does not handle layoffs very well: very little transparency -Bonuses are given at random with no meritocracy -Practically no social culture (the company even admits that in its internal scorecard)

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and flexible. Adapt or die.
