My manager had no people skills, she suffered from severe stress and couldn't manage her work load, only communicated by email, could do with some mentoring.Didn't know how to prioritise and didn't believe in work life balance. Very disappointed in my experience there. Some great people looking for a bit of flexability. MERCK need to move with the times. It's all about who you know and if you speak up you're gone. No work from home or proper flexability. Great learning curve makes me appreciate my new role.

The management have a bad way with dealing with employees in Merck. Merck has a high turnover in staff but Merck still think you should be privileged to work there. It takes a couple of years to be made permanent that’s if you last that long and don’t move onto another company
Pros
Job security
Cons
Bad money, bad management, start off on a contract with no benefits.
