I have been working at Merck

Pros

The people in your group, direct management tends to very supportive. They focus on potential and upward growth.

Cons

HR. HR is not supportive and only looking out for dollars not people. HR is hard to trust and will not look out for the best interested in of the people they “support.” They only care about showing the CEO how they saved, even if it negatively effects a department or person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to empower the organization. Stop approving every $5 invoice and start worry about the bigger picture. If they work for you trust them to do the right thing, if you don’t trust them they should not work for you. There are better ways to manage control then taking it all way.

    Pros

    Strong company history, outstanding core values, ethical approach to business.

    Cons

    Slow to respond to business conditions, steeped in doing things the "Merck way" which prevents new ideas, poor senior leadership pipeline, never remove underperforming senior leaders they simply place them in new roles, pipeline of products has been very poor over last few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change some of the old guard.
