Great time- but future unknown

Supervisor (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

Pros1) Schering-Plough is a high paying employer within the Pharma industry. The bonus structure is one of the best and they are very generous with the annual pool allocated.
2) Schering-Plough is very structured and the HR policies are detailed. They try to develop employees in several ways.
3) Schering offers the freedom to venture in areas outside your comfort zone, even if that is a development opportunity- in important projects. Usually in a big corporation the size of Schering, employees tend to be in silos.

ConsThe motivation level at present is at rock bottom after the Merck aquistion.A large part of this has to do with the uncertainity. Several employees (including myself) have worked very hard for the past 6 years, only for the EMT to leave at the end of the year.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat is the point in selling the company (although it makes sense $$$ wise) after preaching leader behaviors and other ideals for 6 years?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
