I have been working at Merck

Pros

Name recognition of the company. Has numerous products in various disease state, gives you many areas to transfer for promotions. State of the art computer technology.

Cons

Large company with many reps in same territory. May find yourself tripping over each other in physician's offices. This could cause "overkill".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As with any large pharma company, decisions or direction of sales does not seem to match the needs of the reps that our out in the field.

    I have been working at Merck

    Pros

    Location across the bridge from Manhattan. The pay is very good however. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.

    Cons

    Very expensive housing, I found my 2-br apartment for $2000/month. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this is not my area of expertise. I am not sure. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.

    I worked at Merck

    Pros

    Good benefits, such as generous 401(k), health and dental, and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Seem to get into a lot of trouble with the government. New management was good, but not sure now that they have been taken over by Merck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck dealing with Merck!
