    Pros

    Everyone there is dedicated to the well-being of animals. Well-respected brands. Lots of opportunity, strong pay, bonus, & benefits package.

    Cons

    Lot of change over the last few years but settling down with recent integration with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health and should have a great path forward.

    Pros

    The money and incentives you receive on top of your annual salary are definitely a plus. Very educational if you're looking to make a career out of pharmaceuticals.

    Cons

    Very competitive between sales regions, which makes it difficult to integrate or share territories when it comes to introducing new products.

    Make the interview process more interactive

    I worked at Merial full-time

    Pros

    After reading over 200 pages of hiring paperwork anyone can obtain useful information about laboratory technology, safety regulations, and laboratory procedures.

    Cons

    They way they treated me left me burning with resentment! This is a place that can cause extreme fear. The laboratories are unorganized. Your fingers, eyes, and lips might burn as you spontaneously try to guess through the work. I literally wasn't given papers to guide me through the lab work. The lab workers switch words around to management. It is clearly every employee for him or herself there. Management informed me that they will resist with everything they have the safety regulation of having a respirator equipment. Numerous temporary agencies will relentlessly call and email you about Merial Select a Sanofi company bought by Boehringer Ingelheim even after treating you so terribly. It is difficult to tell if they like damaging your future in the biology field in the small city of Gainesville Georgia.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare for the unexpected. Don't stay isolated in the office. Question past practices. Do not give vague assignments. Temporary and permanent employees who are confused and frustrated may still do the work, but if it doesn't meet manager expectations, it will only further upset the employees.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, with plenty of Vacation Days, but benefits are getting a lot worse with the BI buyout.

    Cons

    There is a large group of middle management who has no clue what is going on in the labs, doesn't do anything all day, and makes it hard to advance.
