Merck & Co., Inc. (MRK) Chops 152 Sales Jobs


12/31/2013 8:06:01 AM

Merck is cutting jobs but others are hiring too! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

The continuing cutbacks and restructuring at Merck & Co. included the loss of 152 jobs based in Upper Gwynedd, Montgomery County, when the drugmaker sold the marketing rights to the drug Saphris to Forest Laboratories in early December. As part of that, Merck filed a WARN notice (named for the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act), that indicated the layoffs of Saphris sales representatives would be effective Feb. 3, 2014.

Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring! (We know you can't resist.)
