Pros: Commraderie

The company was great early in my career. At the end the politics was out of control. Ultimately the company was bought by a French company.

I'd be surprised if Merck still exists in 10 years
Senior PC Specialist (Former Employee), North Wales, PAApril 15, 2015
Revenues continue to drop year after year and management's only answer is to fire more people. That is not a sustainable business plan. The fat has been gone for years and the cuts keep coming. Lots of "gallows humor" among workforce, everybody knows they don't have a future with the company. It's a shame, it used to be a great company to work for, now the environment is just toxic.

Infectious Disease Scientist III (Current Employee), West Point, PAApril 3, 2015
Working for Merck has been a great experience so far. I have found the work intellectually challenging and demanding. Although my commute is long I love coming to work here. The scientists are smart and great people, everybody is quite respectful and goald-driven. I could not have asked for a better job opportunity right after graduate school.
