    I worked at Merck Sharp & Dohme full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, annual reviews that result in raises. Good health benefit coverage with reasonable costs for medications. Encouraged team building, continuing education, employee growth.

    Cons

    Was starting to see cuts in employee benefits. Like many large companies, there were hoops to jump and some things were time consuming. A fair amount of representative management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't follow the trend of temp employment, cutting benefits, and reducing team building to save a buck.
