ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Founded in New York in 1891, Merck discovers, develops, produces and markets vaccines and medicines to treat various medical conditions. Driven by its research, the company sells its products mainly to pharmaceutical wholesalers and retailers, among others, and its product line contains vaccines and medicines in more than 20 therapeutic categories. Merck helped bring about the groundbreaking predecessor to all modern antibiotics: penicillin. The company continues to file drug applications with the FDA and to complement internal research and development (R&D) efforts; the company has cultivated external resources, either through collaborative alliances or through strategic acquisitions of other companies. Merck acquired several biotechnology companies, such as privately held biopharmaceutical company Abrnaxis for approximately $80 million; GlycoFi, a leader in the field of yeast glycoengineering and the optimization of biologic drug molecules, for about $373 million and research-based pharmaceutical company Sirna for approximately $1.1 billion.

WORK AT Merck
At Merck, we all share an extraordinary sense of purpose: helping to improve health and well being around the world.
Working toward this goal gives our employees unmatched experience that is fulfilling on both a professional and a personal level.
Career development is important to us, and our people are continually learning. We provide structured processes, tools and a culture to help our employees shape their careers and reach their fullest potential.
We put you in charge of your career at Merck by making professional development a self-directed process. We provide learning opportunities and initiatives – both internally and with outside partners – and you work with the support of your manager to pursue areas of interest and benefit to you. Development opportunities could include on-the-job options, such as stretch assignments, mentoring, shadowing, rotational programs and leadership programs. We also offer extensive, globally accessible training and development resources.
Whether it's caring for your children or an elderly parent, or other activities or responsibilities, everyone has other commitments outside of work. We understand the importance of those commitments. That's why we have a global flexible work arrangement policy that allows our people to strike a greater balance between work and life. We are results-oriented. "What" is produced or accomplished is more important than "when" or "where" work is done.
