    Former Employee - Medical Representative in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Well looked after. A very warm friendly culture. Compensation and benefits are good. Management decisions seem sound and in touch with the needs of the business. Keep your head down and you can find yourself on a good salary very quickly.

    Cons

    Maybe a little to warm and comfortable for those looking for a fast paced career. Career progression opportunities are very limited. Getting into head office roles from the field is tough. Support for further qualifications is seemingly non existent (MBA etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a graduate fast track type programme is needed to attract and retain high calibre graduates.

    I worked at Merck full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very talented people working in the labs, among the smartest in the world. Very well run company logistically, things got done quickly and with very few mistakes. Hard working but enjoyable working atmosphere.

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited by your education level.
    Appeared the politics were in play much more at senior levels
    At the time senior scientific management did not communicate effectively their strategy.

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
