70% of the CEO
Kenneth C. Frazier
I worked at Merck full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Solid products, excellent research, commitment to patients. Overall, reps are compensated well with a lot of perks. You don't realize until you leave how valuable the perks and flexibility are. Everyone complains while there but it is a really great gig.
Cons – The usual big company issues, change that makes people happy happens very slowly, but big salesforce changes happen frequently.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep up with the openness, transparency and connection to the field. It makes a difference one rep at a time.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Merck full-time for more than a year
Pros – They might still have a few good SP people held hostage carrying them.
Cons – Too long to list this cold, wanna be clinical, stuck up company. Customer Trust and Value scores is how you get compensated. You get the same bonus as everyone else in your region regardless of how hard you work. NOT sales. Some DMs I would't hire to be reps.
Advice to Senior Management – Retire
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
