    Former Employee - Associate Director in North Wales, PA

    I worked at Merck full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good
    People were among the finest.
    Location in PA had more affordable housing
    Reasonable commute

    Cons

    Due to restructuring there was a lot of fear and confusion. Some people added to the difficulty of a difficult time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire the consultants , rather hire some you laid off to share their expertise.
