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

    Pros

    Well looked after. A very warm friendly culture. Compensation and benefits are good. Management decisions seem sound and in touch with the needs of the business. Keep your head down and you can find yourself on a good salary very quickly.

    Cons

    Maybe a little to warm and comfortable for those looking for a fast paced career. Career progression opportunities are very limited. Getting into head office roles from the field is tough. Support for further qualifications is seemingly non existent (MBA etc).

    I have been working at Merck full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, lack of stress regarding workload depending upon work area, one of the few remaining biopharma companies with pension plan, good benefits and reasonable incentives

    Lack of accountability regarding management and floor employees, poor training regimen, pay- while certainly not bad- is generally under what one might glean from other similar companies, limited number of O3 positions per team
