GSK cuts 1,000 from US salesforce

GSK is to cut around 1,000 US sales jobs by the end of 2008

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is to cut around 1,000 US sales jobs by the end of 2008.

This 12 per cent reduction will see the number of sales reps employed by GSK in the US fall to around 7,500. The most affected will be reps dealing with primary care products.

The lack of new drugs, along with several flagship drugs facing imminent generic competition are key factors contributing to a pattern of job cuts seen in other leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide.

In October, PMLiVE reported that Swiss company Novartis is to cut 550 US sales jobs by 2010, while Merck plans to cut 7,200 posts worldwide and close three research facilities by the end of 2011.
