I worked at Merck

Pros

This company is a great place to work. I enjoyed the team atmosphere and I felt that I had a lto of opportunities to grow.

Cons

The workload at this company was sometimes hard to manage. At times I would find myself working from home every night and weekend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The managers at your company need to focus more on training. They also need to spend mroe one on one tim eiwth each employee.

    I have been working at Merck

    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.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, no clear direction as to where the company is headed, especially given some of the challenges to the industy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merck needs to focus more on what we're good at and stop trying to do everything. We also need fewer levels of management.
