Merial has set a course to become a workplace that attracts and rewards the world's best employees. That's why the US Benefits Team makes every effort to be sure we are providing benefits that employees want at affordable prices. Pharmaceutical industry benchmarks and feedback from employees guide our decisions.
Coverage for most benefits begins on the day you join Merial. Prior to your first day, you will be mailed a package that explains your core and additional benefits and includes the necessary enrollment forms. On your first day, a Merial Human Resources Representative or your manager will meet with you to help you answer any questions you may have concerning your benefits package. You have 31 days from your date of hire to complete enrollment through the Employee Benefits Center. After the initial 31 day enrollment period, you may only change enrollment selections due to a "qualifying life event" or during annual Open Enrollment.
