Default Whackyass Welch to the Rescue!

Hey Welch-hows the kool-aid tasting? You all hear the message last week? We are a green light on courage and candor!
Are you f@#$Ing kidding me? Fire all the so called "change agents." All their doing is tellling you what you want to hear. I gave specific examples of how it is not safe to speak up around here and also so fairly significant retarded coaching by my manager. What a joke this company has become. Change agents. Its changed all right. Only not in a good way. Keep your head buried in the sand and all will be good! We are making progress!

This whole company is pathetic. A ceo who is supposed to be running the company-but not into the ground-all the while he is heading the Penn St. disaster. I know I work for merck. But would it be ok if I took another job at the same time? Well then, why is it ok for you? then we get the Jackie Nelsons of the world who gives us completely different messages from Brian Shortsight. I mean longstreet. Then we get kool-aid to drink from dco's like welch. Then, we get ctls, well, like we have here in the west. The field force is do demotivated and you not only dont even know it, you wouldnt have a clue of how to correct it. Oh, wait! I know what we can do! Lets talk about it on another tc on late friday afternoons! That will do it!
Strong work-all of you.

i agree-too much kool aid. Ive had experiences with the change agents over the past few years. All of them are nothing but a bunch of brown nosers. they work less than we do as well because they are always on these useless t/c's. im also in agreement with how sad this company has become. the change agents in the west suck ass-every single one of them. company kool-aid is just like the kool aid Jim jones gave out-its tasteless but in the end it will kill you. yeah

He made his career in so cal as a rep that never worked and got a few guys that fell to the fluff stuff. Now we get nothing for leadership around here except for company kool aid and make believe. He would do even better at a place like Disneyland where its all make believe

I was a little surprised that he got this job. He is not very good. Not motivating. Kool-aid? Well, yeah, probably. Then again, you have to be like that to get anywhere around here. Id be careful what you say around him. Trust none if this "candor and courage is safe" crap. He will do anything to get ahead. You should see the show he puts on when his boss is in the room. Hilarious to watch. Hes always looking over there to make sure he is saying all the right things and drinking the kool aid flavor of the month. TRUST NOBODY-ESPECIALLY MANAGER TYPES

Dont even waste your time. I come in here every once in a while when I need to get a laugh. It never disappoints. But at the same time you should know that nothing of substance EVER happens because of a cp post. You can complain all you want but nobody in the upper ranks spends time here. If they did, maybe someone would recognize what a slop this company has turned out to be. Too bad. Used to be great. Just go do your job, give them what they want, zipper your mouth, and try not to let the company ruin your life. Mostly malcontents on here anyway. Its poison in here. Stay away

He like to assign his CTL's books to read in addition to their normal activities-like thats going to help. Complete joke this guy is. You want to know why we're where we are? Look no further.

Safe to speak up? Definitely not. I spoke up about a documented issue that is an outrageous legal liability for our company and almost got forced out over it. Say nothing- the gestapo will come after you like no tomorrow if you do.

Did you all see that one? This guy takes the cultural survey, takes all the good points out of it-which were not many, and then tosses all the rest of it that he didnt like. I actually thought he wasnt too bad until I saw him in action this past go around. Pretty embarrassing. Another leader who doesnt know anything about being a leader. And with guys like hoskinstrevor working for him what can we all expect? Now that one was truly embarrassing. We feel bad for you reno reps

No, we don't have to support this particular exec team-with few exceptions you all suck ass. We dont know if Jim is a good manager-we will need more time on that one. We are not all known-pompous arrogance. Merck is no longer a great company. No, my job is not easy-yours is though. With no influence on customers, a non-revenue position and too few reps, we will see how long your job is seen as valuable jerkoff. Your day is coming! And soon! And I used to be able to sell until the lawyers took over. Now nobody can sell.

You win huh? Typical ctl in the west. You should have seen this group in action at the 1S meeting. Incompetence was on full display for all to see. You all act like your a bunch of veterans but your actions and performance makes you no better than rookies. You're the talk of the town when we all get together. How pathetic you all are. You want to know whats wrong with this company? Look no further than the examples of ctls in the west. I have one word for those who have this "I win" attitude. KARMA

let me guess...Jim is one of the rare, (and arguably lucky??) guys that has the magic
fairy dust sprinked on them, (like the MGAMS) and sort of floats along until full pension
retirement in a safe, insulated bubble...?

Well old whackyass told the whole region that we all need to get our resumes ready so that were prepared for anything in the future. After all, one of his friends is doing that! So, that's the answer?

When you have leaders like this that cannot motivate and come up with nonsense like this, they dont realize that they will just get the minimum from pretty much everybody. People will just sit around and wait until they are cut. And in the meantime our company worth shrinks.

I love it when these clowns call a tc for 1 1/2 hours at the end of the day with 15-20 minutes of content and then fill the rest of the time with questions. Because nobody is motivated or has had any real questions addressed nobody has any questions. In an effort to make himself relevant he starts calling on others to ask them questions.

Then we get the brown-nosers and you know them all pavc/corson/other ler's etc. asking their stupid ass questions. What a drill. What a joke. How pathetic.

And you change agents-name changed to "leadership council" because of the negative connotations of what you all do-quit giving welch the feedback that its all well out here. It sucks ass like a previous poster said. you're all a waste of time and money with the zero that you bring to the table

So, now we can all be well
Really?
Nice

Cross CTL field visits are a way to get "objective" assessments of rep behavior. If you are chosen to host a CTL for a day, you are on the brink of a PIP.

When the truth is denied, avoided, sacrificed, or whatever it is Merck does with truth, one can never be free. It is frightening when you think about it. It is kind of amazing, too. In the end, no truth, no trust.....and no value to anyone.

old whackyass comes to town on field visit and thinks he brings "value." What a freaking joke. One of my doctors begged me not to bring him around again. He said he could see right through all the phony-ass questions he was asking. Acting like he was really interested in what he-the doctor-had to say. Whacky leaves town thinking he knows something about our business. What a freaking fool. How would you like to pretend like this guy does and hope that nobody finds out how ignorant or piss-ass short you are in business acumen? Its no wonder how we got to this level with guys like this steering the ship. Can't wait for the next rounds of surveys. Going to be tough to not believe them 2 years running. Perfect.

Sounds the same as bringing Mark Stevens into town for his field visits. Hey Mark, you wanna bring real value to my customers? Stay home! You have nothing to bring to the table.

Old Whacky sends out a message about an LER opening!!!!! Yes! Even though they already have the guy picked out(from Vegas)he want's to let us know about it!! Thanks Whacky. I couldn't think of a better company kool-aid drinker to work with. Why would someone want that position? It's not worth the extra dollars associated with it-which isn't much. Yeah, I like it. Love the name-fits perfectly Whackyass.

Old whackyass comes to the rescue again! Can you believe the LER promotion in the west? He could've picked a weak one from Vegas, but he picks an even weaker one from Utah! You want to see incompetence on display? Come on out west and see it front center stage. The latest promotion has a person in it who has always been at the bottom of the list-for years and across many field forces. We knew you would pull through whacky! Way to go! Yeah, go ahead and pass on the more experienced and more successful to hand pick your kook-aid puppet. She'll do all you ask her to do. As is typical for the LER's in the west, she'll fit in nicely by asking everybody else to do her job on teleconferences and meetings. Way to go Whacky!

It's sickening to see what this company has turned out to be. If you wonder why we've become the company we now are, this is just a microcosm of why. Oh but wait-didn't we have surveys that came back to say that Merck is the most valued and trusted? Yeah, and I've got a bridge to sell you....

If you have problems with the leadership and their decisions, talk with them about it. Don't be a coward and post your pent up anger on a website. And, if they disagree with you, at least they know where you stand. Grow a spine, talk with whomever you need to and stop complaining. As Master Yoda would say..."let go of your hate."

"..talk with them about it." Yeah, right. This let's us all know what kool-aid you drink and the make believe world you managers live in. That's like saying "it's safe to speak up." Uh-huh. You ever try to say anything to the so-called "executive team" out here in the west? If you did, you'd know that once you do that, you're done-targeted for action to be taken against you
That's alright. Don't worry about my pent-up anger. The bigger worry is the pent-up anger of the majority of the sales force. Very little performance. I don't know, maybe it's just the west performance. Time to replace the big-dog whacky. If you think the sales force is motivated in this company, you truly do live in a cave. If you think I'm wrong, take a look at the companys value in the past 10 years. It's only going one way, and it's been doing that for a long time.
Now go back to the movie house and memorize some more Hollywood movie lines. Yeah, that's what we need around here. Someone coming in here and quoting movie lines to correct reality. No wonder we're where we are. You should grow a backbone and say something when you're in the "executive team" meetings. Oh yeah, you're one of the kook-aid drinkers so we can't count on you. Unreal.
