I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 8 years)
Broad team, capabilities and confidence
Organizationally astute to capabilities and impact - technology welcomed rather than seen as a threat
Encouragement to grow group's responsibilities and impact.
Large company with bureaucratic overhead that comes with it.
Scientific inertia and arrogance
Organization developed too many layers - losing site of where the golden eggs come from
Advice to Management
If the team keeps losing, you sack the manager not the players: i.e. institutional / strategic errors are executive errors not operational.
I applied online. I interviewed at Merck (Elkhorn, NE).
I was hired from a contractor position. In order to obtain the contractor position you were interviewed by at least 3 people, sometimes in a group and sometimes separately. Interviewers were pretty friendly. HR and 2 different managers sat down with you separately.
