    I worked at Merz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was very good, benefits were good.

    Cons

    Didn't relate coverage issues with sales numbers. Wanted Reps to save money while traveling by eating fast-food. A manager actually told me he eats lunchables for dinner.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect your Reps to lower their living standards to save the Germans $.

    I worked at Merz full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are the ONLY pro to working for Merz.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management. Antiquated, broken processes. Zero accountability for anything. Hostile work environment at times. Extremely high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to CEO...replace all management. Persuade the Merz family to invest $ into fixing the internal processes, rather than paying outrageous salaries to HORRIBLE managers.
