Company news: GlaxoSmithKline
GlaxoSmithKline is readying another round of R&D cuts and giving its Research Triangle Park workforce a haircut, with plans to eliminate positions at its Neurosciences Medicine Development Center, according to the News & Observer of Raleigh, NC. Less than 50 R&D jobs are being eliminated nationwide, with fewer than half of those coming from Research Triangle Park and Philadelphia emerging largely unscathed. It's a drop in the bucket after years of deep cuts at the company, which has cut 22,000 jobs worldwide between 2007 and 2010, the newspaper reported.
