    I have been working at Merck as an intern

    Pros

    Lazy managers who dont know anything.

    Cons

    make interns work more than full time employees expect a lot...while most of the employees waste time and resources, Unfair selection process for job offers.

    Advice to Management

    no introduction to basics and expect too much - when deliver excellent results the interns who are chosen are chosen based on(1) need to fill China employee and(2) service because those slots need to be filled. Some interns dont even speak English well.
