'I have not see any cuts yet but I am in genetic analysis sales. I have been told that my group is immune to any cuts due to the fact that Fisher does not have the caliber of sale people to i.e. technical expertise to replace these positions.'
Don't kid yourself. TM will just give away 'genetic analysis' boxes with the purchase of bread-and-butter -80 freezers and floor mats.
No layoffs according to my boss MM
Mark, Mark, Mark ;
I feel sorry for you ... and for what you left behind. Too many kids grow up without two caring parents and even worse, if only the mother supports the little girl by working two / three shifts, it´s a shame too see how you continue to neglect your parental responsibility.
Great new incoming leader Thermo !
Just remember folks, whether you are redundant and fired or get your wages and benefits cut yet again, that Trader Joe's has the best dumpsters to feed from.
They (senior management, HR) don't give a crap about the quality of the workforce that gets handed off to Thermo, it's better for them if everyone just finds another job and quits rather than having to deal with the costs of layoffs. Less costs, more money to spend in a last fling on corporate jets, meetings, etc. Their strategy is therefore to make your job as shitty as possible.
They're not going to change that policy, it is intended to reduce the costs of headcount reduction. There are still layoffs to come and then the big "synergy" events after the transaction closes.
Guy's, frankly I'm surprised they're even continuing with the policy given the "sell out". Clearly it's a way of increasing dissatisfaction & reduction in head count. Hang on in there, take the days off - go for the pay out!!!!
head count numbers to be let go in pleasanton for synergies
and those numbers are?
Tell the finance guy genius in Pleasanton to go to a f$cking conference room next time he is discussing the head count numbers to be let go in pleasanton for synergies. Dipsh!tted moron from finance on conference call discussing numbers to be let go from his cube with people all around his cube. Now rumors fact rampant in Pleasanton of the impending layoffs. That finance guy should be fired. We hire morons. How the leader of Pleasanton going to motivate his peeps now that plans are let known.
I really hate this forced vacation policy. Is it even legal?
What does your employment contract say? If you're in the US, you're probably employed "at will". Virtually any policy is legal under "at will", as long as it isn't discriminatory for/against a protected class. It's entirely legal to say that everyone below pay grade X can only accumulate 80 hours of vacation time and then goes on "use it or lose it", while if your title has a "C" at the front, you can do whatever you want. They can't, for instance, pick on pregnant women, but they can, as a general policy, prevent a pregnant woman from accumulating vacation time if they prevent everyone in her job category from doing so.
In this case the time is docked off our vacation balance regardless of whether you take the time off or not.
Most likely you won't get fired for not taking vacation, the company tolerates a lot more than that..well, from certain people for their shenanigans My manager told me that there was a product manager , Bp, from Frederick who was passed out on tables at a meeting and also, in gi there were ops mangers sleeping with their employees but never got fired, so just do what you want and don't take the time
I'm sure the forced vacation policy was vetted through the lawyers in HR before being implemented. That doesn't mean a whole bunch though, because the HR lawyers will tell the company exactly what it wants to hear. If you're really curious, best way to find out is to file a law suit. You'll probably lose your job, but at least you'll get a nice settlement to live on for a while.

fredericks hr is FAR from high level. or or professional for that matter
Ask yo mama!
If it is that bad in Fredrick, why are you bitching about it here. Take some action and stop hiding behind the rumor mill. You have high level HR in Frederick .. Are they not helping??? The people you are complaint about are low level clerks and wanna be sr managers who only got their roles due to time served on their knees.
"untrained monkeys and gay unicorns ". MC,MM,RW,JJ = monkeys. Gay Unicorns, are you talking about PH and MG.
Frederick is a fucking cesspool of butt wipes. No worry, TMO will disinfect this place and start again in VA.
Fucking Reno is a failure. I am reporting noise problems to OSHA.
hahaha listen to you all go on about how shitty things are. id have killed myself if i still was there.
frederick is the biggest piece of shit. run by untrained monkeys and gay unicorns handcuffed together and dropped into a cesspool of bird doo.
whats really funny.
is being on the other side now watching those pukes try and run the joint... laughing because they have no idea how utterly WORTHLESS they are outside of the shitsphere they work in right now.
Yeah, they fucking lie, they keep losing good people because they straight up tell lies! I have. Witnessed it first hand, Macera and Vansant, lol, they make a better couple than Heather Valentine and Macera. It's bad in Frederick and the leadership team knows nothing about operations or any idea on how to motivate or lead in a positive light. go go go, no recognition, no $, no thank u, no good morning, fuck you dick, be a man and have a heart to heart with the floor guys, let them say what's on their mind!
Mark Macera and Jennifer Vansant need to be very careful on how they frequently bringing people in and accusing them of being seen out of the office or somewhere other than work when on the clock. This seems to be very manipulating. They are just searching for shit on people and when they can't find it, they lie! Oh yeah, Reno works great, lol, fuck that no progress has been made as far as quality or efficiency! Ship has sunk dick head, Vansant, you fell right in with the bullshit, you have no idea what's going on, open your eyes and look to the people on the floor and let them explain wtf is happening without being categorized.
I have been told that my group is immune to any cuts...
Now there's someone who doesn't understand management speak. As in, "the performance of your group is immune to any cuts we might make..." means you're so overstaffed that they can cut your group in half and it would be immune. You want your group to be extremely sensitive to any cuts.
There is no such thing as immunity from cuts. Some groups are more likely than others to experience (deeper) cuts, but immunity is a pipe dream. These shake ups are always a great way to clean house.
And LT sales do? You're shitting me.....
I have not see any cuts yet but I am in genetic analysis sales. I have been told that my group is immune to any cuts due to the fact that Fisher does not have the caliber of sale people to i.e. technical expertise to replace these positions.
Poor ABI employees. Thought it was bad under Fat Tony then they get bought by Invitrogen. Lucifer cut compensation and benefits, added hours, and made everyone's life a miserable slog. So is there a light at the end of the tunnel with TMO? So far the ABI luck is running true to form. More cuts in compensation. The worst is yet to come.
Look for the normal signs, hr blocking meeting rooms, secret leadership meetings, offsite events, increased recognitions ( base cause your manager feels guilty for not doing it sooner), managers working early/late ( which is not normal in most cases) ... And most of all talk to your ops leaders, they will tell you everything that is going on because they can't handle the layoffs and are only doing it so that they are not laid off .. Most don't support the corporate "projects"
Well, it's June...let the layoffs begin! Who's first on the chopping block?
HR only interviews candidates from competitors to get marketing and sales information.
You will not be hired.
Do NOT write up any proposals or technical information for them for any interview.
HR's promises are not worth the skank interviewing you.
Thermo needs a flame-thrower to start burning up all the deadwood at LIFE.
Entire buildings should be demolished.
Drop a nuke on Carlsbad.
What a waste of space.
Thermo has The Final Solution for LIFE.
Kick him and the horse he rode in to the curb. MO's staff
Is not any better. Fricking maniacs.
he seems like he has lost it. MO is one mean f$cker. intimidates and cause of so much problems with his groups happiness woes. agree. give him eval and show him door.
Poll. Is it just me or is the head of Global Operations and Services gone a bit batty? Not the nicest guy but over the last year he has become a bit of a sadist and unstable. Serious someone needs to give the guy a psych eval. Maybe just me but guy seems a bit unstable. Not good.
Sorry to tell you, but there are no smokescreens, but rather slimy recruitment methods used to upgrade talent.. Look at the postings and consider if that is your job, once the new personis hired, they will take your job duties, assume your place in the organization and then they will find a way to move you out, either because you are too old, not the right pedigree, not a relative of gl, mod, or pl or some other poor excuse. Think about the last 5 people you have seen leave your group...things that make you go hmmm......
you mean the same opening that have been on there for the last 5 years, smokescreen, total smokescreen.
So what's up with all the openings being advertised?
Are you the brilliant scientist that was just hired named Dr. Seuss?
I was one of them. Most of the victims were costly Fins (Finzymes, Finnygan, Finpipettes).
Now their BID section which compete with LT is cleared to accomodate survivors from LT.
"get a life or someone you can talk to, clearly you are a loser"
Wow how bitchy...
Wow, how bitchy,..this person did some good research to inform others ... You must work in CB hR and have nothing better to do today so you are trolling the rumor mill...get a life or someone you can talk to, clearly you are a loser!
And you came to this brilliant conclusion merely by listing a bunch of addresses? Wow, that's some pretty impressive business savvy. At least we know your job is safe, because they wouldn't dare get rid of such insight.
A quick search on google yielded infos below:

And that only in PA,VA and MD. 38,000 employees +10,000 from LIFE, that's just way too many.
I heard layoffs to begin in June. Orders had slowed a lot. People no longer care! Just collecting paycheck like usual.
Heard there was 400M in human capital redundancies. @ 1M/person that is 400 people gone. @ 100K/person that is 4,000 - adios.
Ion wont be the only thing to go. They will slash manufacturing, distribution, admins, facilities and useless support functions. There are way more talented people frommThermo, so lifers will be leaving first across the globe.
Thermo won't keep Ion, I'm sure they're already talking to Roche about a deal to sell it off along with the new SSF facility.
They won't need two morons driving each function and department.....just one!
Are you talking about the TWO senior software managers at Singapore?
