Eli Lilly taking an axe to tech ops

Eli Lilly's plans for a new round of job cuts in Indianapolis apparently includes taking an axe to its technology operations. According to a report in the Indianapolis Star, the Big Pharma company told state officials that it plans new layoffs at its HQ, with more cuts at the north and south campuses of its technology center as well as its Intech Park campus.

Lilly spelled out some of its plans in a letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, making it clear that these are permanent cuts. As FiercePharma reports, Lilly has been shifting its workforce, laying off workers in the U.S. as it adds new staffers overseas. China, in particular, has been one of the emerging markets gaining plenty of attention from Lilly.
