I worked at Merck full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good scientists, good pay, good benefits,

Cons

challenging management changes, difficulties in the clinic have made morale low, several re-organizations in the past years have resulted in decreased productivity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hope that they select a model and stick with it for a while. I hope that they encourage taking risks and not ask people to follow in line without discussion.
