Approves of CEO

I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good company package. Health insurance, maternity package, good car options for field representatives and option to include dental and life insurance coverage for family at a small monthly cost

Cons

Too many "brown-nosers" getting ahead. Too much internal politics. I guess most sales environments are like that. Hard work should be adequately compensated.

Advice to Management

There should be some improvement in middle management people skills

    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start your career given that you have many opportunities to embark on projects. Good pay and benefits. Culture moving towards inclusive organization.

    Cons

    Workload distribution is highly uneven. Incompetent managers and other employees able to move up without accountability, while others work very hard and go above and beyond with little reward. Highly stressed environment with work/life balance impacted. High turnover and layoffs due to downsizing cause destabilization and high risks for gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Think....A degree does not make an employee productive.
