Amgen Layoffs

Filed under: Chemistry Jobs — Tags: — sankirnam @ 9:42 am

Amgen has just announced that they are laying off 2,500 employees and shutting down their facilities in Washington and Colorado. Of course, their stock price also went up almost 7% that day, after the annoucement.

I don’t understand how I am supposed to be optimistic about the future of chemistry after reading things like this. It appears that getting a bachelor’s in computer science (an idea I once, to my regret now, foolishly scoffed at) is going to be necessary in order for me to put food on the table and a roof over my head.
