AstraZeneca to cut 8,000 jobs by 2014

The word "stability" doesn't seem to exist when we're talking about the world of pharmaceuticals. According to the Associated Press, AstraZeneca may be cutting 8,000 jobs by 2014.

There was a time when working for a pharmaceutical company seemed to be the "ideal" job for many working professionals. I wonder how those attitudes are changing during these difficult economic times.  Some physicians who wish to leave the world may be thinking about a career in the pharmaceutical industry, but how stable are such jobs?
