    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Merck full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Love the integrated teams in MRL. People care about their studies and patients. Remote work opportunities, good benefits and pay

    Cons

    Some Middle Management can be territorial and more intent on developing themselves. Everything is a fire to put out. Process to review and discuss projects is way way over the top. Too cumbersome governance structure. Duplication of program reporting.

    Advice to Management

    One central governance body. Allow teams more flexibility once a program is approved. One monthly report and use that for multiple reviews instead of a new slide for every area review. Less formal, more discussion where it matters.
