Pros

Great company with wonderful products. The management varies depending on which division you are in and the geography.

Cons

currently being bought by Merck and unsure of the future.

Advice to Management

The leadership is strong at Schering-Plough and they are in a tough situation. At the moment, the only advice I have is to fight for the team you have currently during this merger/acquisition.

    Merck needs to focus more on what we're good at and stop trying to do everything. We also need fewer levels of management.
