    I worked at Merck full-time

    Pros

    I was able to learn the pharma industry.from manufacturing to reasearch. They made sure you were aware of all the rules and taught you well

    Cons

    They are a dying company. They claim to have much in their pipeline but they just say that to keep people investing in the company. After the merge with sherering-plough they layed off over 100000 people. As the saying goes all the low hanging fruits have been picked. Nada in reasearch,the bleeding will continue,a sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people in management all believe in one thing: perception is everything,preformance is nothing

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
