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

    Pros

    Great benefits. If a family member gets sick you need not worry.
    As part of Pharma, salaries are higher than other industries and Merck runs in the middle of the Pharma pack.
    Promotions based upon high quality work and being liked by your manager

    Cons

    Shift in priorities every three years. R&D talks about the value of thier "future" portfolio, but the future never arrives.

    Advice to Management

    Create medications that have clear biomarkers so you have an indication if they will work.
