    Approves of CEO

    I worked at MSD full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, nice environment, room to spend time on new topics, good salary, bonus and benefits. Good opportunities and company looking for innovation. I really loved to work for MSD and I appreciated the strenght demonstrated during temporary adversities and the confident approach taking decision looking for the long term results.

    Cons

    If you are an IT freak that like to work by his own and without very structured protocol, probably you will find frustrating all the regulations that you have to follow and that will make you feel that everything goes as slow motion. As reasons behind all this are explained quite clearly. For me this was not a major issue,I considered it as something new to learn. Be advised to get a good deal for your starting salary...

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more flexible with salary raise for persons with that have current salary in lower side for the covered position. Consider to provide as benefit option private heltcare (ie for relocated employees that cannot speak local languange).
