Cut-throat Culture at SP

Director (Current Employee) Kenilworth, NJ

ProsGreat compensation, benefits, the majority of middle management are highly professional, pipeline is very strong for the US and ex-US (the latter being the growth driver for the company). Merck acquisition will right-size the back-stabbing, shoot-from-the-hip mentality at SGP.

ConsSenior management is ingrained with the Fred Hassan mentality of take-no-prisoners, push forward without regard for professionalism and treating employees fairly and honestly. However, every executive mgmt leader is gone through the merger .. except one. SGP management absolutely demolished Organon employee morale and good standing.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to Merck: beware of SGP upper mgmt who thinks they know better than a slow-moving, bureaucratic, over-analytical parent company.
