    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    too many meetings. Mostly a passive aggressive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Need to start looking at what managers have been in place for a long time and what have they really accomplished. A lot of the same managers, running the same type of project and failing over and over again. It is OK to fail, but it shouldn't be the norm.


  2. "Good, but degrading over time"

    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good flexibility, challenging work, good products, dollars for doers program

    Cons

    Lots of downsizing, very small merit increases, recent reduction in total compensation, lots of leadership and organizational changes create unstable work environment

    Advice to Management

    Do not continue to reduce employee compensation. As soon as the economy improves, your most marketable people will seek employment elsewhere youve taken advantage of a temporary shift in employee market value at the cost of your most valuable asset (your best employees). Continue encouraging the flexible work environment it about all youve going for you right now as far as employee retention goes.
