2011 Pharma Job Market: Is the Pendulum Swinging Workers' Way?

After a forgettable few years of pharma industry workers being maxed out, stressed out, or laid off, 2011 finally promises a turnaround. Biotech is already hiring manufacturing workers, says Megan Driscoll, president of Pharmalogics Recruiting, while traditional pharma should follow suit later in the year. The change is more than welcome, says Driscoll, as burnout is a real issue for workers, who have had no choice but to take on more responsibilities or risk being let go. Manufacturers, too, will have to reward workers who have seen them through tough times.
