Engaging Projects and Friendly Environment Make for Rewarding Experience at Merck
Other (US) | 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?


Would You Recommend

Yes

Philadelphia, PA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Interacting with other interns and colleagues. Had the chance to learn about the industry as a whole, not only in my specific department. Traveled to other sites to learn about other departments.


Downers

Would have liked to meet the President of the company. More intern events like in previous years.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great learning experience and probably my most memorable summer. The people there are really amazing and it's a wonderful collaborative environment.
