Many times 😂 how was your experience?


Terrible. I went through 3 rounds of interviews and was told by the director to look out for an email for the next steps and I got absolutely nothing!!

Yeah, pharma is notorious for this unfortunately!


Not Merck yet, but I have been ghosted by hospitals that should absolutely be acting more professionally than that.

This plan includes life insurance plus return on maturity which is unit linked.
I feel this is a good plan as it gives 1 Cr life insurance cover (till age 69) plus a return on the premiums paid on maturity (maturity at age 69 max)
