    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Merck has products in many therapeutic areas and an excellent pipeline.

    Cons

    Merck did not compensate their sales representatives fairly. When you are considered a "specialty" representative, and are earning 15-20k less on average than many primary care representatives, it is a disgrace.


  2. "Great place to work for people who want to coast"

    Former Employee - Manager in Whitehouse Station, NJ
    Former Employee - Manager in Whitehouse Station, NJ
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    in most areas, flexible work arrangements negotiable
    pension when most companies don't
    good benefits - medical, dental, vision, life, legal, flex accounts, long term care
    if you get the right manager/department, training opportunities possible
    possible to have many careers with the same employer
    global company

    Cons

    hierarchical - consultants have a better hearing than employees
    slow moving - ponderous decision making and then the decisions get revisited
    shareholders are the most important stakeholders
    not finished layoffs
    new CEO
    entrenched executive team

    Advice to Management

    If "courage and candor" continue to be linked you can be sure that neither will emerge. When the culture wants to hear from employees, you won't need a slogan.
