Thread regarding Pfizer Inc. layoffs

2013 Pfizer Layoffs

Over 80 people located at our CovX Research Unit in San Diego were let go. The plans were released to public in Feb 2013. Pfizer also submitted two WARN Act notes to NY dpt of labor and it was announced that jobs at our plant in Pearl River, NY, will be eliminated - around 40 people. Additional 10 jobs in upstate Rouses Point, NY, were lost too... San Diego layoffs are not unusual, Pfizer is working hard on taming R&D spend, this is the biggest cost for us and you need to be careful with any expense here... This came four years after we bought CovX and it was merged with our poorly performing Biotherapeutic and Bioinnovation Center based in San Francisco. Pearl River cuts were a part of a larger purge targeting over 1000 people that should be leaving by the end of 2014. 2014 Pfizer layoffs are still ongoing so I do not want to comment on this any more. Rouses Point layoffs are part of plans 1st announced in 2009 and confirmed in May 2013, the plant was closed in early 2014...
