    Former Employee - Associate Specialist in West Point, PA

    I worked at Merck full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary was decent, good benefits

    Cons

    Too much turnover of staff, too many changes in organization, leadership was ineffective, poor opportunity for growth/ promotions, layoffs, overall unhappy dysfunctional culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop forcing inclusion principles and lean principles on EVERYONE - a lot of time and money was wasted and a lot of people ended up getting laid off anyway. Could have targeted the audience more effectively.
