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

Pros

Open to flexible job arrangements, good salary and benefits. Can be a great place to work depending on direct manager and division. There is a lot of variability in the quality of management!

Cons

Large corporation with a top down approach, not a lot of room for individual creativity. Legal aspects of the pharmaceutical industry have really impacted ability to drive results and the Sunshine Act is impacting ability to interact with key customers. Product launch and development has been less than ideal for the past 5-8 years and the future is questionable for at least the next 2-3 years.

Advice to Management

Retaining excellent performers should be a higher priority when downsizing and eliminating positions. The future of this company DEPENDS on having the best people not just what is easiest "legally" to do!!
