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

Pros

The compensation is good (salary, benefits, health care) and the colleagues are smart, hard working and truly want to do the best for the drug industry.

Cons

Lack of direction. Many changes that have slowed the science down--and give a false impression of innovation. No one to take responsibility for decisions.

    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The money, benefits, and car are all very fair. Some of the drugs are very good. A lot of the reps are great people.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything bad you ever heard about big pharmaceutical companies is true. You will be paid well, but there is not a lot else to be happy about.

    Advice to Management

    I do not know where to start.
