Big Pharma Becomes a Smaller Employer As Biotech Booms
Based on EvaluatePharma Intelligence

EP Vantage Report

This report from EP Vantage shows big pharma has become a different employer over the past decade. From mega mergers and the push into emerging markets to the dramatic restructuring of sales and R&D departments, the shape and spread of their staff has shifted.

Over the same period, however, the size of their employee roll call has actually changed very little: at the end of 2013 big pharma employed only 3% fewer people than it did in 2003, a drop of almost 31,500, data collected by EvaluatePharma reveal. 

Conversely, for an image of spectacular expansion look no further than the world just outside big pharma – other drug companies with a market cap of more than $30bn more than doubled their headcount over the past decade, adding more than 130,000 employees.
