Former Employee - Senior Scientist in Kenilworth, NJ

I worked at Merck full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The compensation is good (salary, benefits, health care) and the colleagues are smart, hard working and truly want to do the best for the drug industry.

Cons

Lack of direction. Many changes that have slowed the science down--and give a false impression of innovation. No one to take responsibility for decisions.

Neutral Outlook
