I worked at Merck

Pros

Excellent pay
Holiday Shut Down
Decent learning experience
Tuition Reimbursment - they paid for my masters degree.
Good people to work with
Strong desire to succeed part of culture

Cons

Pressure to succeed extremely high
Expectation of being available at all hours of the day and night.
Work life balance - near impossible to raise a family

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow it down a little bit. The job can still get done without working at 2 am from home. It's not worth risking family and health

    I worked at Merck

    Pros

    Integrity, solid management at region level, excellent products, in touch with global issues in health care

    Cons

    unsure of value of workforce, too many products to continue to maintain expert status on products. Pay in middle of industry instead of top of the industry. Too many new products not approved by the FDA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to lower level employees about what their customers tell them. Allow employees greater work and life balance.
