Approves of CEO

I worked at Merck as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The people are diverse, intelligent and great to work with. The work is challenging and meaningful rather than paper pushing. For my internship, I was given a real project that needed to be completed for the company and that had a real impact. They also housed me for the summer, provided transportation options to the site, and planned on-site tours to see different departments and what they do.

Cons

Can be high stress because of time deadlines, few full-time positions for new-hires after completing the internship and its locations are all on the East Coast, so relocation anywhere else isn't possible. Also, they house you in Philadelphia, so you commute 3 hours every day using public transportation.

    I worked at Merck full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They might still have a few good SP people held hostage carrying them.

    Cons

    Too long to list this cold, wanna be clinical, stuck up company. Customer Trust and Value scores is how you get compensated. You get the same bonus as everyone else in your region regardless of how hard you work. NOT sales. Some DMs I would't hire to be reps.

    Advice to Management

    Retire
