Manufacturing Tech. II (Former Employee) – Rockville, MD – July 19, 2013
Upon hiring I was told that my position would quickly turn into a supervisory position (which is why I wanted this job). After almost 4 years the carrot was still just being dangled in front of my nose. The management is a very separated from the daily life of the average worker and therefore never seemed to understand issues or concerns that people presented them with. The other employees were by far the best part of this job. There are a lot of hard-working people that hold out hope that one day MSD will follow through on their promises. However, it is easy to see that after about a year on the job people start to realize that nothing is quite as it seemed during the interview process.
The accounting department is a mess. The director of accounting (CFO) shows up from time to time, but throughout it seems that no one is in control, yet you are being watch by every other employee. There is a little lady that has a lot of control and she is not an accountant. You are at her mercy if you know your job or appear to know more than her.

Before even considering to apply to this company, do your homework! You need to know that the company culture is one of intimidation and false accusations. There is no opportunity for advancement and if you plan to resign and "they" like you, then and only then will they think of a counter offer. Promotions are limited but they tend to hire from the outside, because they can fool outsiders better than those who already know about the issues within the organization. The HR department is a nightmare with not one person qualified in it, including the director, or better yet the former director. That is why they are looking for one, once again. A big sign should say "BEWARE, ALL IS NOT WHAT IS APPEARS".
the people in the life science positions are very talented and great to work with.
Executive Management and the HR department are terrible.
