I have been working at Merck

Pros

Good experience working in cross-functional teams. Good entry level experience. Some great people to work with for the most part.

Cons

High performers are not truly appreciated, external training is limited, and career advancement considerably delayed depending on your job responsibilities.

Advice to Management

Recent Significant changes has introduced limited growth opportunities, disengaged employees, and lack of good talent retention. Stop overloading your employees with too much work and managerial tasks under the guise of entrepreneurship. If expectations are such then compensation should be justly given.
