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

Pros

The high caliber of Merck employees is unrivaled. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented group of people.

Cons

It is difficult to distinguish yourself if you are not a type A personality. No one will recognize your accomplishments if you don't advocate for yourself

Advice to Management

Find ways to recognize employees. Recognize that diversity includes not just racial/ethnic diversity but also diversity in personalities and ways of working

    I worked at Merck full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good career growth opportunities within the company. Able to get promoted 3 times in 4 years although some of that was due to lots of changes and layoffs opening up opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of changes and news of layoffs across company. Morale lower during layoffs and hiring freezes present more work without the resources to meet the challenges of the new opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Plan people management better to avoid layoffs whenever business fundamentals change

    Work with the hourlies instead of treating them like slaves
