Current Employee - Director in Whitehouse Station, NJ
Current Employee - Director in Whitehouse Station, NJ

I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Work hard, be visible, DELIVER and be proactive and innovative. These traits have helped me improve my growth, responsibilities and have been rewarded through increased promotions.

Cons

There is too much change right now with all the re-organization. If you get the wrong manager who is not very effective at pushing you or being your advocate, you can get stuck or potentially lose your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold yourselves accountable and measure yourselves with the same high standards you hold your teams to.

    I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very bright people still remain, although many excellent people have left. Vacation policy is generous.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, and too much focus on financial results, and not enough on the patient. Employee morale is low. Senior management, with the exception of the Research division president, is poor. Raises are sub-inflation on average. Bonuses lower this year than in any year in recent memory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about the almighty dollar and focus on the patients and retaining talented, hard-working employees.
