Good company, good benefits. Better than most places to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN

I have been working at Merck full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou are compensated fairly, have above average vacation and holiday time, and (in most cases) have less stress than in other work environments. Additionally, the company has been fairly stable.

ConsWith stability comes a lack of internal movement, consequently, there is not a lot of opportunity for advancement. This can both be good and bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within at every opportunity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
