    "white 40-50 reps---especially men---are in the crosshairs"

    ....lousy.....should be by lottery without regard to anything else.

    Yes. now go try to prove it in court. You'll spend thousands and lose. Merck's legal team has structured the "optimization" to make it bullet-proof in court. It's a scum-filled organization, from their subverted ways of reducing head count to their lies to customers and employees alike. Does anyone really believe that ENHANCE has been delayed for any reason other than to salvage the sales of that miserable product? It's even more criminal than Vioxx, only no one died with Vytorin/Zetia----or at least no one that we've been told about.

    I understand where the 15x15 guy is coming from with today's environment at Merck. But I don't think it is right to keep working and scamming Merck. I don't know how his spouse would happily endorse his new "free time" to go out for lunches or to the gym during working hours with her. But may be I am from the older generation. I hate what Merck is now. But I cannot make myself work the system that way. That was why I chose to retire instead.

    Very true. Merck is committee driven. Ken Frazier may have perfected the legal aspect further with lessons from all those Vioxx cases. I am sure someone have already sued Merck on age discrimination. As an attorney I talked to said it is all circumstantial. You cannot prove the managers and directors sat in a room and decided to get rid of older reps. They shred stuff. Try to request a copy of personnel file (they charge you for copies) and it is all sanitized. Merck has more time and money to drag it out forever.

    And drag it out forever they will. Anybody contemplating legal action needs another job or other sources of income to live on during the years (decades?) a lawsuit could require. In reality, you either need a rock solid case that an attorney will take on contingency or a relative or good friend who will handle your case similarly. It will definitely take years, otherwise Merck will offer some settlement.

    See that dude! Its all here in black and white. You got it-you have no job security based on your job merits around here anymore. It didnt used to be that way-this used to be a great company. Enter policital correctness, EEO, and "diversity." We got diversified all right-right out of the very top positon of the most admired companies-remember that in the mid-90's? Now look at us. We have had tons of successful reps forced out or made up reasons for pip's. You must be living in a different world than I am because I honestly cannot see anything positive coming from this company. Nothing. Dulera, Juvasync, and Januvia XR dont count. Hang on for as long as you can, but dont expect to get fulfillment out of your job or to get too comfortable because it can all happen very quickly..and also very easily. I dont know, keep the dream alive dude! Youve got it!
    Oh man.

    OP back again. My point exactly! It's so sad that Merck will make up lies about reps who were past award winners & well known and respected in their territories. I've seen it, you've seen it and it's still happening right now. Well it's almost lunch time now and I've already put in my 3 hours today so I'm done. Meeting the wife for lunch (Thanks for paying Merck) and then home to change and then to the gym. No guilt here what so ever! Gotta love my 15X15 lifestyle!

    I'm curious about what an "expensive rep" makes - bonus is about the same across the board, so base salary of $80,000 or more?

    I know this is true because it happened to me...Once Merck decides you make to much money and are targeted for removal, they just start making things up about you and the CTL initiates a systematic program of harrassment and sub-standard reviews...

    the whole thing is a corrupt racket...I say burn Merck as badly as possible by scamming them as badly as they scam you....

    This is absolutely true because it happened to me after 30 years. The company is circling the drain and if you are younger you should get out now. Love this post-- keep on Mr. 15 x 15- you rock!!!

    I'm fed up as well. It has happened to two that I know well---the pressure, the orchestrated bullsh1t, the lies....all of it. I'm in for my own 15x15 plan starting now. I want out, anyhow, so I'm going out with some poetic justice.
