    Maternity leave was 6-8 weeks paid and then up to 6 months unpaid. I think this fluctuates with different departments.

    really I have no idea about maternity and paternity leave benefits, although as a contract employee I feel that Merck gives great attention to women issues and health, the employees are very active on women heath

    6 weeks paid for uncomplicated birth, 8 weeks paid if you have C-section, then you have the option to take additional unpaid leave. Paternity leave is not as lengthy but not sure how long. Probably pretty good leave program for the United States.
