VERP Acceptances

It seems the acceptance letters have all gone out and everyone has been approved. Numbers are still under the 2800 they hoped for. Does this mean a round of layoffs are to be expected soon?

New job postings

Communication has been minimal, so it's nice to have this site to rely on for answers. I see jobs are being posted. Is this to back fill those retiring? It doesn't make sense?? Or are people going to have to start bidding on there own jobs?

Another kick in the shins

Regrettably, mismanagement is the norm rather than the exception in modern business. GM, Ford, Chrysler, Bear Sterns, Lehman Bros, AIG, Citi-Group, Bethlehem Steel and a whole host of other industry giants ALL managed to bungle their ways to the very... —  read more

Eli Lilly layoff

Zyprexa patent caused many issues, Cymbalta too. We lost over 1.5K sales folks in 2013. Some contractors, but 50%+ were employees. Some folks were moved. Zyprexa, lost 83% of its sales that year, what can you expect.
