Current Employee - Senior Specialist in West Point, PA
Current Employee - Senior Specialist in West Point, PA

I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great work life balance, opportunity to adjust working schedule to family needs, great opportunities for development and challenging work. Good benefits. Solid salary and bonus.

Cons

Union shop. Shop floor employees unwilling to change and resistant to continuous improvement because they want to keep old processes and excessive overtime.
Company performance has been good last could of years but annual raises minimal due to company benchmarking and knowing they don't need to pay employees more. Non-aligned, cascading company strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expect more from the shop floor, align around a single strategy, get waste and complexity of out our processes.

    Former Employee - Senior Sales Representative in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Senior Sales Representative in New York, NY

    I worked at Merck full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid products, excellent research, commitment to patients. Overall, reps are compensated well with a lot of perks. You don't realize until you leave how valuable the perks and flexibility are. Everyone complains while there but it is a really great gig.

    Cons

    The usual big company issues, change that makes people happy happens very slowly, but big salesforce changes happen frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the openness, transparency and connection to the field. It makes a difference one rep at a time.
