Hear how our staff feel about their lives at MSD

Five years ago, I decided to quit my job to look for a new one in which I could make a bigger difference in patients' lives. Now at MSD, I help identify patients for clinical trials. I'm ignited to come to work every day to make my little contribution to improving patients' lives!

I rejoined MSD, and am very happy that I made this decision, as it felt like I was returning home, returning to my team. The main reason I came back is because working at MSD gives me a great sense of purpose to improve the patient’s life, I am able to directly impact their lives for the better.  The experimentation culture at MSD encourages us to stroll outside our comfort zone in order to strive for excellence.

MSD impressed me right from the first interview. The interviewer told me that they would love to hire someone with a non-science background to stimulate innovation. After working here, I realized how open-minded MSD is. That is one of the reasons why we have a pool of such diversified talents at MSD.
