I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very well managed; excellent talent; a strong orientation to process excellence in all disciplines: science, manufacturing, sales and marketing and support services such as finance and IT.
A strong commitment to developing people. Managers who are well trained in people management and leadership skills. Good pay and excellent benefits.

Cons

The management is very careful in making decisions and bureaucratic. There is not much regard for the value of time or money because the company has had so much success for over thirty years, it rarely feels the pinch. In the US, there are too many people on staff since the merger with Schering Plough, so you can get lost in the shuffle pretty easily.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Operate leaner and pay people better. Functional management can bury a lot of good people and never get called on it. Employees need a better way of moving in the organization besides the existing posting system.
