To us a good job is not just about money. In addition to competitive compensation and bonuses acknowledging outstanding work, we also offer a wide range of benefits to everyone working at our company.

Our employees make us who we are

We strive to be an innovative company that goes above and beyond to attract the brightest and boldest talent we need to reach our business goals. Above all, we care about the health and well-being of our employees and their loved ones.

When you choose an employer, we know you will consider your full Total Rewards picture—not just how much money you’ll make or what your job responsibilities will be. That’s why we offer a comprehensive benefits program that goes far beyond the basics—and offers something for everyone across any life stage and personal situation. Whether it’s growing your family, caring for loved ones, building your future, or handling a major life change, we’re here to help you live your best life.

Your journey is unique, and we pride ourselves on offering the most generous, highest quality benefit programs among our peers to support that journey. Our benefits offering encompasses four pillars of holistic well-being to include: health and wellness; saving and financial; voluntary benefits; and work/life support. As curious minds, we care, pioneer, and outperform to advance human progress for our customers and patients. See below how our benefits can do the same for you.

  • Health & Wellness

    We offer comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage—including virtual care through Telehealth and free behavioral health counseling sessions.

    We also offer a wellness incentive program and personalized support to help you navigate and use your benefits. 

  • Saving & Financial

    Our 401(k) Plan includes a generous company-matching contribution and an additional discretionary contribution each year.

    We also provide tax-advantaged accounts for you to save for healthcare, commuting expenses, company-provided and buy-up life insurance to help you protect your financial future.

  • Voluntary Benefits

    Our voluntary benefits provide additional protection from the high costs of healthcare not covered by health insurance.

    We also have discount programs that offer exclusive savings on everything from auto, home, and pet insurance to low-interest personal loans. 

  • Work/Life Support

    We have several programs to support your work/life balance, including generous paid time off, back-up day care services, education assistance, and more. 

As a pioneer and global market leader in fertility and a family-oriented business, we recognize the challenges that can arise when undergoing a fertility journey. More than five million babies have been born with the help of our products. This number represents about half of all babies born through medically assisted reproduction since the birth of the first baby conceived through in vitro fertilization in 1978.

We aim to ensure this opportunity is also afforded to our employees who share the dream of becoming a parent. Our Fertility Benefit offers Merck employees financial services for fertility treatments.
