Pros

Great company with wonderful products. The management varies depending on which division you are in and the geography.

Cons

currently being bought by Merck and unsure of the future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership is strong at Schering-Plough and they are in a tough situation. At the moment, the only advice I have is to fight for the team you have currently during this merger/acquisition.

    I have been working at Merck

    Pros

    Merck is a large company that has many diverse opportunities for employees. This allows employees to seek out varying opportunities to develop without changing companies.

    Cons

    Merck is large and this sometimes allows people to get lost in the shuffle. What used to be a great company for growth and development of people, has now shifted more focus on the business priorities impacting the "personal" touch that employees sometimes need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to drive the company to support the core businesses and expand as appropriate to support that as in the merger. Don't forget about all of the great people that help to make this possible each and every day...

    Pros

    Remuneration - Salary compensation (as part of the pharmaceutical industry) is above average. People looking to increase their compensation should consider positions within pharma.

    Cons

    Combative environment - Due to some difficult events about six years ago, the culture of Schering Plough has changed. Unfortunately, these changes have had a negative influence on the culture, however has allowed the company (in revenue terms) to prosper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company and allow people to make decisions about moving on.
