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

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management not always in tune to what is happening on the research and development level. Decisions are made to cut and disband groups without realizing the full potential of what is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication is key to retaining the talent that you so desire.

    I have been working at Merck full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company provides great work life balance. Including flex time, remote ability when needed. Time-off policies- 3 weeks vacation to start.

    Cons

    The company is struggling with a dwindling pipeline which has resulted continual layoffs with employees being replaced with contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select one strategy and stick to it.
