I worked at Merck

Pros

the company had good benefits and competitive salaries, assignments allowed opportunities for further growth. For its size, the company had a decent revenue stream. good place to start your career and to learn

Cons

the company had its ups and downs the most recent one from losing a key product in Vytorin due to a small clinical trial. CEO Fred Hassan ended-up selling the company at the great bottom of the financial crisis to another behemoth company.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and not as much to the Wall Street
