Even as global financial slowdown is forcing companies to retrench jobs, MSD Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of US-based Merck & Co, today said it will employ 1,500 people in the next two years to strengthen its sales and marketing network and become a leading company by 2015.
"We will be doubling our staff strength in India in next two years as part of our plans to consolidate our marketing network in the country, which will further help us achieve our aim of listing among first five pharma companies by 2015," MSD Pharmaceuticals Managing Director Naveen A Rao said.
