I have been working at Merck

Pros

Competitive compensation, good benefits, great work/life balance. A lot depends on your manager. I am lucky to have a great manager, and within our group we have lot more opportunities to learn new skills and take on challenging projects.

Cons

Provide more opportunity for career advancement/development. The current structure does not provide for much career growth opportunity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Satisfaction can be increased and turnover reduced by developing the professional competencies of the employee. Have a mentorship program that would help employees plan out a future that matches their career goals.

    I have been working at Merck

    Pros

    after acquiring scheirng plough it is the second largest pharma company now and so that has been sold as an exciting reason to expect growth within the company

    Cons

    cant get recognized in IT delivery services side of the company. promotions are rare and do not seem encouraged. it is a thankless job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say something, back it up with you actions. do what you say you are going to do. recognize merit and success with compensation or a promotion. particularly in IT, upper management must recognize those who are capable and effective vs those who are the source of complication and always have issues doing a quality job. finally, hope and talk of growth potential gets old.
