The best part was working with the people in my group because I could tell they really wanted me to get a lot out of the experience.

Engaging Projects and Friendly Environment Make for Rewarding Experience at Merck
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

It was a challenging and engaging experience. The internship program was well-established, and the people at Merck (both other interns and full-time employees) were extremely friendly and willing to reach out to you. I liked that my project was a truly important one, and not one filled with busy work.


Downers

I wish there had been a better way to compensate commuters that live farther away but do not qualify for Merck-sponsored housing. It was a little tiring for me to have to drive an hour each way everyday, but I did not live quite far enough away to qualify for the housing. I would suggest either decreasing the radius to qualify for housing slightly, or perhaps partially reimbursing commuters that live farther away (i.e. 20-30 mi).


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask yourself: Can you picture yourself working at this company for years, or even the rest of your life? Do you think you can grow and advance in your career path here? Are you happy with the work, company values, people, environment, location and benefits?
