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

Pros

The high caliber of Merck employees is unrivaled. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented group of people.

Cons

It is difficult to distinguish yourself if you are not a type A personality. No one will recognize your accomplishments if you don't advocate for yourself

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways to recognize employees. Recognize that diversity includes not just racial/ethnic diversity but also diversity in personalities and ways of working

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

    Pros

    Good career growth opportunities within the company. Able to get promoted 3 times in 4 years although some of that was due to lots of changes and layoffs opening up opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of changes and news of layoffs across company. Morale lower during layoffs and hiring freezes present more work without the resources to meet the challenges of the new opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan people management better to avoid layoffs whenever business fundamentals change

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

    Pros

    Company tries to do what's right with the patient at the forefront of all decisions. Very honorable company.

    Cons

    Executive Management. Severely lacks imagination, slow to react to market dynamics that affect strategy, resources to representatives, and M.C. decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Policy dictates decisions that are made. There are no innovations within the sales force because of policy. Not allowed to think for yourself..At All!
