    I worked at Merck full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good benefits package. They also have good technical resources if your job includes research or any type of developmental function. A very professional and corporate atmosphere.

    Cons

    While very professional, you feel like a number rather than a person. As with most companies, they expect one individual to handle the workload of three. If you were originally with legacy Schering, your opportunities to stay with the company are limited.

    Advice to Management

    While upper management preaches inclusion, they do not practice what they preach when it comes to legacy Schering employees.

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

    Pros

    great pay with great benefits.

    Cons

    It seems like our "plan of action" is always changing, so you have to be easily adaptable to changing job functions, schedules and work structure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees in the loop so we don't feel like we are constantly being jerked around without knowing the reason.
