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

Pros

Great benefits and good salary

Cons

Worked for a small remote office, so was not eligible for many of the benefits and perks available to those at larger sites. Found a brick wall between administrative jobs and possibility of advancement. In ten years of employment there, only had one administrative colleague succeed in advancing to an exempt position - out of several dozen largely capable, competent and skilled people.

Advice to Management

Provide more advancement opportunity to your staff, and you'll retain them - and their positive attitudes - longer.

    I worked at Merck full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is exciting to see so many brilliant scientists wiring here.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I found personal growth limited, with changes in management so often not much chance to mentor. The science is disrupted often due to restructuring.
