Featured Review

Former Intern - Chemistry Intern

I worked at Merck for less than a year

Pros

It's an internship available for both grad student and undergrad, and the mentors were very helpful. My mentor genuinely cared about my professional development and wanted me to know about the... resources (such as talks, lectures, workshops, and also networking) in the company.

Cons

The past summer had the first intern meeting across all sites in America, which I think can be organized better. But otherwise within my site it was a wonderful experience.

Current Employee - QA Analyst

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good salary, share options and bonus

Cons

Brexit having an effect on business
