"I worked with Schering Plough for 9 years before the M&A with Merck in 2009. They are both excellent companies. Their culture, work ethics and uncompromising focus on quality are some of the qualities that endeared me to the company. The company provided employees an opportunity to learn, grow and contribute to the growth of the company. With a first class R&D facility and numerous manufacturing plants, the company had an employee strength of over 10,000 in over 60 countries around the globe."

"I enjoy working at Merck because I like my job, my colleagues and my supervisor. I strongly believe that the new oncology product which I am working on will be very beneficial for lung cancer patients. I enjoy the company environment to work independently and ask advice if needed. I would recommend Merck to others."

"I worked at Merck from 2002 through 2014. It used to be an excellent company to work for, unfortunately it has become merely a shadow of its former self. Business is now trumping science and to the detriment of the company."
