    Pros

    Pay and benefits not what they used to be, but still good relative to many companies. Managing to be relatively successful, in a difficult industry, despite many patent expirations.

    Cons

    Management "talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk" when it comes to being customer-focused, taking appropriate risks, diversity of ideas and employee engagement. George Merck's quote to "remember the patients" is long forgotten. Decision-making is highly controlled and priorities are never set, therefore trying to execute on every idea that comes along. Probably not done downsizing, which leads to increasingly difficult working conditions (long hours and unrealistic expectations). Career tracks are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Train middle managers and support them, but hold them accountable for the unnecessary pain they are causing your employees.

    Unfortunately, Merck decided to outsource the CRA role in 2012.
