I have been working at Merck as an intern for less than a year

Pros

All in all, it's a great company with great pay and benefits. The pay is competative as to internship. People here are nice. The enviroment is good. Opportunities for further development are a lot.

Cons

Not really. Haven't found any yet. The only thing may be that the company is so big that it sometimes takes a while when processing documents.

    Merck Research Laboratories is a great place to work with flex hours and strong sense of community.

    Former Employee - Medicinal Chemist in Rahway, NJ

    I worked at Merck full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The facilities are top notch. There is an onsite gym with complimentary gym clothes wash and dry. There are flexible work hours to accommodate people with families or who need to adopt an early or late schedule. There is a strong sense of community there and the feel is that people are happy to work there. There is also a shuttle from the NJ Transit -Rahway station to the Rahway site so taking public transportation is easy.

    Cons

    At the time, there were only 2 weeks of vacation, but I believe that has changed to make it more competitive with other companies. The onsite gym membership is not free but comparable to outside gym membership.

    Current Employee - Marketing in Summit, NJ

    I have been working at Merck full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture is great, good, smart people with lots of great ideas

    Cons

    Career growth is slow, decisions not made very quickly, lags the market in product innovation, and will always sacrifice growth to save a few dollars. Pay is below industry avg

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgt needs to push decision making down, and needs operate as a cpg company not pharma.
