Pros

Great compensation, benefits, the majority of middle management are highly professional, pipeline is very strong for the US and ex-US (the latter being the growth driver for the company). Merck acquisition will right-size the back-stabbing, shoot-from-the-hip mentality at SGP.

Cons

Senior management is ingrained with the Fred Hassan mentality of take-no-prisoners, push forward without regard for professionalism and treating employees fairly and honestly. However, every executive mgmt leader is gone through the merger .. except one. SGP management absolutely demolished Organon employee morale and good standing.

Advice to Management

Advice to Merck: beware of SGP upper mgmt who thinks they know better than a slow-moving, bureaucratic, over-analytical parent company.

    Pros

    The type of study trials they run are very challenging and interesting. They are top of the market studies and make for very interesting work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately it depends which manager you report to if you will survive or thrive at the company or not. For example, my first six months at the company were promising, but when my manager changed, it was like working for a different company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Managers need better Human Relationship skills, and the job should not be so completely affected depending on who you report too.
