Merck & Co., Inc. Maternity Leave Comments
  • "There are many women working here, but could use more women in upper management positions. Good maternity leave and benefits, including childcare discounts and back up babysitter options." - Lady bigduke
  • "Gender politics coming into play varies by department and management, and is difficult to prove. I'd be more worried about overall office politics than any kind of discrimination based on gender. From what I understand, maternity leave is a joke. You can get paid for some of it if you have Aflac and don't sign up for it when you're already pregnant (it cannot be a 'pre-existing condition')." - Lady wyakin
  • "I think the company has a lot of flex able options that help working mom's, however I do believe leaving for maternity is held against st the end of the year. When your review is done the time out is held against your rating leaving to fall in a letter wee bracket." - Lady Robby062610
  • "And had a daughter who was terminal" - anon2813
  • "Part-time jobs were offered in the past." - Anonymous
  • "Telecommuting jobs were offered in the past." - Anonymous
  • "Flexible Work Arrangements such as job sharing, flextime, compressed work weeks, part-time work and telecommuting." - Anonymous
