Webinar: Tuesday, March 17, 2015, 12 PM ET
The rate of mergers and acquisitions in pharma and biotech is dizzying. Pfizer acquired Pharmacia and then Wyeth. Merck bought Schering-Plough. Roche merged with Genentech. Novartis and GSK exchanged divisions. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, chances are it will and when you least expect it. Are you ready? After a merger, job loss and uncertainty are employee’s biggest concerns. Mergers, acquisitions, downsizing or restructuring can make your job much more difficult due to this inherent uncertainty. Plus, what you need to do to be ready for corporate change also makes you ready for changes like . . . promotions.
