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.

    I worked at Merck

    Pros

    Ethical company with good products. Work/life balance is good. Pay is competitive some opportunity for advancement or lateral change

    Cons

    Politics play a big part of how things are done. Sometimes all the meeting and coordinating gets in the way of actually getting your job done and staying in front of customers
