    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN

    I worked at Merck full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary, decent raises and bonuses every year. 100% matching for first 5% of 401K. Most people who work there have been with the company for decades and know what they are doing. They are great at trainining and developing newer/less experienced employees. The company rewards employees based on performance. People in my dept were nice and easy to get along with. Great work/life balance. Overall, it was a fantastic experience!

    Cons

    The Memphis site has limited growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for people to move in between sites and dept.
