    I worked at Merck full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong and effective processes
    Professional development (for full-time status)
    Ethical

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere
    Sub-optimal value placed on many positions within the company
    Use of Contract employees for full-time positions/roles/responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the culture similar to that prior to 2006 when employees were proud to ssay "I work for Merck". Treat your current employees better - improve salaries; work-life balance; respect; and stop abusing contract employees as well
