Thread regarding Achillion Pharmaceuticals Inc. layoffs

Achillion layoffs February 2018

We all knew that employees will be the ones to pay for the end of partnership with Johnson & Johnson last year, and we were right.

The company is implementing another restructuring, which is a no longer so secret code word for layoffs. Around 70 people will be shown the door.

I hope this is not just a preview of what's to come.

NEW HAVEN — The fallout from decision by health care giant Johnson & Johnson in November to end its partnership with Achillion Pharmaceuticals in developing a drug to treat Hepatitis C is hitting employees of the New Haven drugmaker hard.

Achillion, headquartered on George Street, has announced a corporate restructuring that will eliminate 20 percent of the company’s workforce, which will result in 70 people losing their jobs. The restructuring is expected to result in a $10 million savings during the current fiscal year compared to 2017, company officials said.
