I have been working at Merck

Pros

Scientists were in charge.
Great work/life balance.
Highly Ethical environment.
Very good Scieince performed everyday.

Cons

Salary is below average.
Promotions are few and far between.
Merck is screwing everything up. they have very little regard for scientists or the scientific process. Merck uses antiquated techniques and has no problem throwing money out the window for shiny new toys.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It doesn't matter. Merck has taken over like a virus.

    I have been working at Merck

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good

    Cons

    Limited advancement, no career development work done by the organization. Very "old school" mentality. Exec leadership has been at merck 20+ years each and know no other way to operate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some fresh blood and new ideas. Stick to a strategy for more than 1 year
