Purdue Pharma is axing jobs but others are hiring too! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

Taking a page from the big pharma playbook, Purdue Pharma is eliminating one-third of its research and development apparatus as part of a reorganization that will now emphasize acquiring or licensing medicines that are developed elsewhere.

As a result of the move, approximately 100 employees will be let go, according to a Purdue spokesman, although he says that the company’s one R&D facility, which is located in Cranbury, N.J., will remain open. The drug maker, which is based in Stamford, Ct., currently employs about 1,700 people, including sales reps scattered around the country.
