A good overall package. Did you still know that there are pensions for salaried workers in the US?
401K and match AND a defined benefit pension.
Still includes pension and free company marketed drugs (if no generic competitor).
40 hours each year of paid time to do volunteer work! This is so important and wished more employers gave this opportunity.
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
Medical coverage is ok - high deductibles. 401K great with excellent matching.
family health for about 350/month, high deductible, 401K with 75% match up to 6%, pension plan, 3 weeks vac to start (entry level) plus 3 days every five years, $5000 FSA, $2500 HSA
I found the benefits package to be one of the very best.
great benefits overall. There was no issue with the total benefits package. reasonable prices for family insurance and health
Tuition Assistance is up to $5250/year. It's weak by the standards of Merck's competitors
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
