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

    Pros

    Stable company, talented & dedicated employees, flexible work arrangements, good benefits
    If the job doesn't get outsourced it can be very satisfying - interesting projects, exciting to be involved in developing new medicines & vaccines

    Cons

    Upper management strategy is increasingly to outsource research, focus is all on cutting costs
    Used to be a place to make a lifelong career, but management has lost its long-term commitment to the employees

    Advice to Management

    Speak the truth to upper management about the risks of pushing knowledge out of the company to save money - the quality of the product & science will suffer.


  2. "Need to increase collaborations between groups"
