LIFE AT MSD

 

At MSD, we all share an extraordinary sense of purpose: helping to improve health and well being around the world

We're driven by the idea that medicine is indeed for the people and not for the profits. Whether we're discovering, developing, designing, marketing or supporting, our work is ultimately aimed towards preserving and improving human life. We are all committed to the utmost standards of ethics and integrity as well as the highest level of excellence throughout the company.

MSD's culture and direction as a company is fully supported by our leaders. Our Leadership Model guides all areas of the Company. At MSD, we have two goals: we are not only focused on business performance, but also on employee satisfaction, which to us means that every employee has the ability to contribute to his or her full potential. The top of MSD's Leadership Model describes the Company's vision to maximise business performance and employee satisfaction. This is supported by two areas of focus: developing individual competencies and building a productive work environment.

 

Professional Development

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 MSD 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 programmes and leadership programmes. We also offer extensive, globally accessible training and development resources.

 

Work/Life Flexibility

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. "What" is produced or accomplished is more important than "when" or "where" work is done.
