Leading company in various fields

The company is international and sees in diversity a very important parameter.
She is open for new ideas, but sometimes it is very slow to implement them.
The social benefits in this company are very high.

350 year old healthcare & life Sciences company embarking on transformation and innovation
Director (Current Employee) –  Genf, GENovember 2, 2017
The company has gone through a lot of transformation over the last couple of years and focusing on innovation and bringing new products and services to market. While it has an exciting portfolio in its pipeline and many smart people dedicated to innovation, the results have yet to be proven in the way of exciting advancements or significant revenues. Time will tell.

The company has a nice culture and open though opportunities for advancement and growth are limited.
Pros
Focus on innovation, a lot of talented and smart colleagues
Cons
Outsourced, and somewhat dysfunction support functions, including HR, It, etc.

Laid back
Consumer Health Research and Development Intern (Former Employee) –  LondonSeptember 4, 2017
Had an internship here, great place to start off. Not strict at all, there was more of an emphasis on the quality of your work than the amount of time spent in the office.

I learning more about protein biology and separation techniques. The people at the company and customer base was definitely the best part about the position.

Segment Marketing (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraJuly 26, 2017
If in HO Mumbai the place is a mixed with old fossils and gen next.

Some old fossils are good but some have their neurons rusted.

Gen Next is always cool to hang out with but you should know well who should be your work peers.
Pros
Lots of Promo stuff
Cons
Month ends / quarter ends

Project Manager/Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Billerica, MAJuly 19, 2017
The employees are great to work with the pay and benefits are exceptional but management is very weak and they don't give you any clear direction on what needs to be done. Getting things done take a long time due to company politics and bureaucracy.

Trato desagradable y tirano por parte del management
Sales (Former Employee) –  SpainJanuary 19, 2017
A pesar de trabajar poco tiempo en esta empresa la experiencia ha sido la peor de mi vida profesional. Que en pleno Siglo XXI se trate a la mujer como un objeto y se valoren positivamente a los "palmeros" que dicen amén a todo lo que dice la dirección y los managers dice mucho de lo que es esta compañía. No se valora para nada el tiempo que dedicas a tu trabajo y la ilusión con que te implicas en los proyectos así como los beneficios que proporcionas a la compañía. Por otro lado, sólo promocionas si eres de la cuerda de la dirección.
Lo dicho, para aquellos que disfrutan trabajando en lo que les gusta y que se les reconozca su trabajo no es una empresa en la que perder ni un minuto de tu tiempo.
Pros
Sueldo
Cons
Mal ambiente laboral, poca promoción interna, management

it is a nice enviroment to work in. Good pay is a benefit. Merck really cares about the employees future... If i would not search for a change i would probably stay for long time in Merck.
