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.
