    I have been working at Merck KGaA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Safety is a high priority. There is a Good mix of lab work and office at times. But its a lot more office work then I would like.

    Cons

    It is very hard to get promotion. Work load can very greatly. Will have to help other departments at times do things no part of you job description

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for advancement. Promote from within instead hiring outside people.
