Satisfied DDO Chemist

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI felt Merck was a great place to work for a bachelors level scientist where associates were treated with a high level of respect. Though the typical glass ceiling existed for associates ideas and input of associates were well heard among PhD's and project support was encouraged. .

ConsMy only issue would be career opportunities outside of the lab were not very available and the path was not encouraged leaving only one place for associates to go when they hit the ceiling, which was to leave

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge talent, foster it within the company thinking of the good of the company not just the good of your department. Managers want to keep good people in their department and when they grow beyond that they have no choice but to leave to further their career.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
