    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Anonymous Employee in Elkhorn, NE

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merck (Elkhorn, NE).

    Interview

    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.
