What people are saying about Merck

A recruiter from a technical agency reached out for a remote data engineer position at @Genentech (contract with no benefits). I am currently a FTE hybrid Merck employee. What would be reasonable pay for this and what is the culture like for contractors at Genentech?

I am starting personal investment now- please tell me if this plan looks good: - Already have a 401k plan with max matching form my employer - invest in 5000$ in S&P ETF - invest 5000$ each in AAPL, AMZN, GOOGL,MSFT - invest 1000$ each in Netflix, ADP and Home Depot - invest 500$ each in Intel, Nike,Walmart and T-Mobile - small amounts 100-500 in Merck, GE, Coca Cola , Altria and Samsung. Thoughts? I plan to invest a little bit each month (200$) in ETF. Any suggestions?

The benefits are pretty good. There is an update to the vacation days available coming in 2024 where there are 25 vacation days. There is a 401(k) benefit with Fidelity that has a low expense ratio for managed Year-based retirement funds, sick days when needed, 10 holidays + 1 flex holiday, and 4 shutdown days. Also there is a pension and other benefits. Bereavement is up to 10 days per year. Medical, dental, and vision are reasonable. Some jobs require on-site work each day but some are 3 days/week on-site and the rest can be virtual.
Benefits are great. Only disadvantage is healthcare plan option is limited to 1 plan.
Excellent benefits and vacation time
Very generous package for health insurance, pension, increased time off starting in 2024 regardless of tenure and matching 401k
The company makes enough money to cover monthly copay
20 days PTO, year-end shutdown, 401k match, pension
