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

    Pros

    Usually first in class with new therapeutic categories, high ethics. Pride in working for this company. Good Benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Seemingly endless work flow. Negative work environment. People were out for themselves in trying to save their jobs. Those left behind were over worked and depressed.

    Advice to Management

    While there were aggressive objectives to reach, motivating people by negativity and threat of loss of job does not achieve desired results.
