    I worked at Merck full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits even at the entry level and for co-op students and interns

    Cons

    The mentoring environment is missing. This is essential especially in research for young professionals to grow. Managers tend to be concerned about just their self interests. This is of course not true of all department, but this was true of my particular department at Merck.


  2. "Merck hires really bright folks, however the recent pipeline failures have been brutal"

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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest folks around, and a mission that you can believe in and support.
    Lots of different divisions in which you can learn from good people.

    Cons

    Poor pipeline over the last 10 years resulted in layoff after layoff.
    Mid to upper level management consists of infighting and turf wars.
    They are betting the company on labrolizumab.
