Pros

Broad-based pharmaceutical company with opportunities in multiple professional and geographic areas. The range of the company - including human and animal health, prescription and OTC pharma, research as well as sales - provides good scope for lateral moves. The company is well represented in most countries, however expatriate assignments are not fostered.

Cons

Very significant disconnect between values espoused in public and the business culture actually in place. The company and Fred Hassan present a very attractive philosophy and vision, however in reality the company is very aggressive commercially with a lot of cynical attitudes among staff who must act in ways that are not reflected in the espoused culture.

Advice to Management

Follow through with the espoused values.

    I worked at Merck as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Una compania donde existe gran companerismo entre el personal. La dedicacion y el compromiso de todos y cada uno de los empleados es admirable. El interes en que el product compla todas los requisites y espectativas del cliente es esencial.

    Cons

    Es dificil encontrar algun comentario en contra de esta compania. Sin duda alguna ha sigo una gran oportunidad trabajar con tan excelente equipo. Tal vez la organizacion para los adiestramientos de un recien reclutado pudera mejorar.

    Advice to Management

    Realmente tuve una experiencia extraordinaria durante los meses que estuve trabajando para la compania. Hasta el momento no tengo algun advice pero si el consejo que de sigan adelante y por mucho mas!
