Nice people. Always above board interactions.

    I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to impact Merck's business, aimed at having a significant positive impact on human health. Merck legacy of encouraging it's scientist to not only contribute to items of unique interest to Merck, but also to the wider scientific community

    Cons

    As in many large organizations, bureaucracy can be an issue.

    Also, in recent years, Merck has taken a more conservative approach in terms of the scientific freedom it provides it's scientists. I think this is short sited and will not serve us well in the long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more autonomy (specifically, control of appropriate sized budgets) to leaders lower down in the organization.

    Don't lose site of the importance of supporting participation by your scientists in the broader scientific community in term of publications and conference attendance.
