    A good overall package. Did you still know that there are pensions for salaried workers in the US?

    40 hours each year of paid time to do volunteer work! This is so important and wished more employers gave this opportunity.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Engineer in Durham, North Carolina

    Vacation: Starting 15 days + 4 shutdown days with 9 holidays, add 3 days per 5 years at Merck. Good target bonus. Typically around the actual target bonus based on performance and employee ranking; no more "forced distribution" so most people get company performance x target bonus. Pension: starting at 4.5% instantly but fully vested after 3 years. 401(k) match: 75% up to 6% (Basically 4.5%) Great maternity leave policy. Easy-to-use awards program: employees recognizing employees Flexible work time or Work From Home (depending on the job role) Flexible sick day program
