"I worked with Schering Plough for 9 years before the M&A with Merck in 2009. They are both excellent companies. Their culture, work ethics and uncompromising focus on quality are some of the qualities that endeared me to the company. The company provided employees an opportunity to learn, grow and contribute to the growth of the company. With a first class R&D facility and numerous manufacturing plants, the company had an employee strength of over 10,000 in over 60 countries around the globe."

"Not worth the effort, the management is more interested in its clicks and listening to itself talk. You are treated as if you are just a cog in a machine. Benefits are being stripped, policies are overly bureaucratic and inhumane. Company has no pipeline and is going down hill fast.The only way they see to keep revenue going is to lay off and outsource to china and India. Stay away from this company, is not worth the stress and burden it places on your mental and physical health!"

"I have had the privilege to work for Merck as a contractor and an employee. They offered great benefits and compensation packages. Not only did they have training programs to help expand employee's knowledge but would offer additional on-site training such as ITIL or Six Sigma."
