Una empresa que saca lo mejor y lo peor de uno

Fue mi primera experiencia laboral después de la universidad y puedo decir que cada persona dentro de la organización juega un papel, todos esperan lo mejor de ti y no menos, para muchos puede ser todo un calvario y para otros toda una experiencia de vida, como fue mi caso.

Pros

Aprendizaje constante

Cons

Equilibrio trabajo/tiempo libre desbalanceado

Empresa ótima em todos as áreas, porém mau gerida.

A Merck é a melhor empresa que trabalhei, porém alguns gestores fazem do ambiente que tinha tudo para ser maravilhoso ficar ruim.

Good place to work

It is a great place to work as a company but some times it depends too much on the management for decisions. They tend to blindly believe in what people say.

Fun workplace but can be monotonous

It was a good place to be in, but if you want to grow quick this is not the place to be. You can plan your retirement here. Overall a descent company.

Good Company

Value contribution of the employee greatly. With 14month pay aside from the performance bonus that the company yearly pays its employees. Great platform to grow even if some leaders tend to micromanage sometimes.

Long hours, low pay, terrible management

Training program in place is inadequate. Management is so far isolated from their employees that there is literally no feedback or transparency. Cliquey office politics and discriminatory behavior is the norm. Lab space is outdated. Low pay for long hours. Terrible work life balance. Not a place to build a career.

Pros

Occasional catered food.

Cons

High stress, low pay

Great place to learn a lot but don't expect too much advancement.

Great place to learn a lot unfortuntaly, the hard working people need to work even more to compensate for the inadequate / poor performers. Promotion and development are not always given to the most deserving, rather it seems to come out of the blue and not necssarily to the person with the experience and qualification. Culture changed a lot

Pros

Benefits, social committee, nice people to work with.

Cons

Clique-y, LT not in touch with rest of employees.

Good place to learn from a team and open-minded

The culture is really open and people like to help each other to give a huge impact on the project. It is a really good culture to support each other. I learned a lot.
