PwC reports high pay, attrition at Indian pharmas

Pharmaceutical companies in India boast the second-highest average salary per employee compared with other industries surveyed, trailing only consumer goods. And drugmakers spend more on training per employee than other industries.

Yet one-third of pharma employees resign within a year of starting work, according to the PwC Saratoga India survey 2010 on human capital effectiveness. Researchers studied 37 companies across different industries.
