Current Employee - Director in Boston, MA

I have been working at Merck full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

State-of-the art facilities, and top-notch colleagues. Great flexible work arrangements (though that to some extent depends on the nature of your job and the flexibility of your manager). Great focus on employee safety and wellness, and on employee development.

Cons

Frequent corporate reorganizations are a pain. Layoffs can be very demoralizing, but for the most part have affected other sites, not Boston.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop reorganizing!

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

    Pros

    Training was detailed and on-going. Compensation used to be fantastic with uncapped potential bonuses paid monthly. Promotions based on consistent sales results. Yearly profit sharing. Excellent products to sell!

    Cons

    Over the years, it evolved and didn't really seem like sales anymore. You were part of a cluster, and it became team selling. Sometimes frustrating because upper management equated number of calls and reps to sales, when all it did was irritate the physicians. It kind of turned in to "check the box" on a call, too many representatives in the field with the same message, rather than consultative sales.
