Pros

Fairly good benefit package and good PTO as well flexible working hours. Highly diverse company.

Cons

The senior management is very incompetent and unfair in decisions related to career advancement.

There was a lot of favouritism and disrespect of staf of different cultural background.

Advice to Management

Take to time to appreciate the work of junior staff. More competent staff should be promoted to positions of increasing responsibility.

    Pros

    Merck was about the patient and about the science. They were absolutely ethical for a long time. They provided generous benefits packages and relocation packages.

    Cons

    The joint venture with SP made the ethical waters muddy. It's a huge company with a huge company feel: disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to stand up to the big wigs. Merck upper mgmt needs middle mgmt to be more honest and innovative. Stop drinking the kool aid :-)


  2. "Challenging but flexible environment"

    Pros

    The environment is one of learning, collaboration, and challenging projects. It is the most flexible environment I have ver had the opportunity to work in. While the integration activities have made it stressful, I am privileged to work with committed, driven professionals.

    Cons

    The hierarchical review system can be stifling to creating new solutions for complex problems. However, this is recognized, and many leadrs work earnestly to remove those barriers.

    Advice to Management

    An honest assessment of the variance within different functions feels overdue.
