Our sincere condolences go to the anonymous comment poster — and all others — who were told they are now no longer employed by New Merck, today. Here is a first hand report, of the all-hands’ meeting:
. . . .Anonymous said. . .
The way it was explained to us (1 of the 580 being let go) They are closing every building on site, except one research building that they are dumping the $120 million into, and selling off the rest of the space. The size of the site will be about 1/4 what it is now. Fred’s old office building will be gone by 2013 a few other buildings are already vacant. That nj.com story makes this seem like a good thing.

We will, of course, keep tabs on this.
