    I worked at Merck as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment with other associates and middle management.

    Flexible scheduling and ability to work from home twice per week.

    Cons

    No upward mobility for FTEs. No upward mobility for RPS employees on-site (also a poor company to work for).

    Senior management was clueless at best, and counterproductive at worst. There was zero interest in developing employees, improving the group or processes, improving relationships with internal/external stakeholders. Senior management's understanding of our role in the business was shockingly poor whenever they interacted with us.

    Recently, the company announced massive layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what the business unit does and invest time and/or resources into improvement when needed.


  2. "I had a chance to learn several technologies and contribute to many different therapeutic areas."
