    The worst is the high deductible for health benefits. Other than that, most other benefits are fairly competitive.

    I am a contractor and many benefits are not given to contractors. For the employers, there are many benefits.

    Benefits at Merck are average. Be wary of the wording. They (somewhat insultingly) advertise their 401k matching like so: "$0.75 for every $1, up to 6%. Guess what. That's 4.5%. The commuting compensation (paying for monthly passes for the bus or train) may not get fully covered depending on your commute length.
