I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great work life balance, opportunity to adjust working schedule to family needs, great opportunities for development and challenging work. Good benefits. Solid salary and bonus.

Cons

Union shop. Shop floor employees unwilling to change and resistant to continuous improvement because they want to keep old processes and excessive overtime.
Company performance has been good last could of years but annual raises minimal due to company benchmarking and knowing they don't need to pay employees more. Non-aligned, cascading company strategy.

Advice to Management

Expect more from the shop floor, align around a single strategy, get waste and complexity of out our processes.
