What's going on at LIFE?

Synergies=Layoffs
coming B4 year end.

I was let go so that they can

I was let go so that they can bring another vendor in to do my job in calibration. Something smells here. Can you say kickback.

How about that idiot

How about that idiot facilities manager in Frederick?

Yep. I'M the one with vitrol.

Yep. I'M the one with vitrol. Not the other way around. That must be it

But is always done with the deepest respect for the employee who is the greatest asset of the company.

Oh, I got the perp walk and I

Oh, I got the perp walk and I am still friends with others that were laid off,all got severence packages

You got a severence package?

You got a severence package? Well no wonder your so happy, what did you have to pull off to get that. Most are let go at a moments notice and given the "perp walk" out the front door at layoff time.

I was laid off by Life last

I was laid off by Life last December. I am not bitter or twisted. I enjoyed the 8 years I worked there and miss it. I appreciate the severance package as well as the skills I learned while there. I am starting my own business not related to Life and was able to go back to college due to Life and what I gained while working there. I miss my co-workers but am sure I will see themwhen I am catering their next seminar

"Feeling a little insecure

"Feeling a little insecure about your decision? It's okay. It probably was better for Life that a bitter asshat like yourself left.

It still amazes me that the disgruntled former/current employees cannot accept that some people might be happy and NOT an ass kisser. Can't wrap their twisted little bitter minds around it.

Enjoy your fun life, being that bitter can't be healthy. I'm sure you will disagree. You always do. Carry on."

Insecure? Not at all. But it sounds to me like your jealous because you're still stuck there. Nothing unhealthy about a little bitterness, but I bet all that ass kissing must be a bitch on your knees.

Yep. I'M the one with vitrol.

Yep. I'M the one with vitrol. Not the other way around. That must be it

It certainly is very scary that you are out there and with internet access and I assume are not locked up. Fortunately, I am not in the same country or even at lifetech. I just feel nervous for those closer by and your rampant instability.

Hey, welcome back. I have not

Hey, welcome back. I have not seen your unmedicated vitriol for a while.

I have that pesky thing

I have that pesky thing called dignity, I told Life Tech to go fuck themselves a few years ago and now work for a company where knee pads are not required. Real funny of you to justify ass kissing and knob polishing as OK in your book. I bet your easy to spot what with your stretch marks around your mouth and all.

is the deal done, you can hardly see any chance in stock price. Several parties present around the table, I cannot believe that. So it is sold to a strong partner to clean up the conglomerate. Watch out for your job

Lifetech's San Diego Padres

Lifetech's San Diego Padres skybox...last year Lucifer could be seen spitting and slobbering beer down his chin and then down the front of the box.

Either that or the tacky Life Tech emblazoned Camel Back sippy cup they give you when they hire you.LOL

"I work in IMS mfg. I see HR

"I work in IMS mfg. I see HR hanging around 7335 today."

That's not a good sign. When you see that blond headed bimbo from HR ooze through the door, someone will most likely be getting bum rushed out the door.

All depends, if you work in Distribution, I'd polish up that resume, Thermo already has a good DC on the east coast.

BALA CYNWYD, Pa., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Life Technologies Corp. ("Life" or the "Company") (LIFE) relating to the reported buyout.

Are you sure the dung is

Are you sure the dung is polished? From the comments on this board, sounds more like it's just weathered.

Hopefully, putting lipstick

Hopefully, putting lipstick on this pig and finding a dumbarse buyer doesn't give GL the inclination to go out and try it again.

Why would he try again? When this is said and done, he'll have pulled in a quarter billion for 10 years of effort. He doesn't have the technical background to start something from scratch, and who would take him on as a CEO to play the NSO (next shiny object) game with their company's money? His track record with NSOs is 98% polished elephant dung / 2% gold. And for the whole 100%, he paid diamond prices.

Which one? Hopefully that asshole Merhl got tossed out or that fat bastard that runs dayshift.

Hopefully, putting lipstick on this pig and finding a dumbarse buyer doesn't give GL the inclination to go out and try it again. You've ruined enough careers and livelihoods. How 'bout given some of the bonus to some of the people you laid off over the years. You wouldn't be in this position without many of the contributions they made along the way...

Come to think of it. Would you actually take a check from GL for $10k if offered?

WSJ: current management is

WSJ:

current management is creating an overhang on shares
someone else can run Life better than Life can
criticism for spending too freely
not focusing enough
scored "well below average"
ranked last

Thanks WSJ. Now you tell us. Of course, anyone could have done a little digging and figured this out about 8 years ago.

TMO said they did not want

TMO said they did not want NGS.. Ion CE and QPCR will probably get spun off to Roche, to offset the cost of this deal. This leaves a lots of cons that can be handled by the existing TMO channels. Still lots of questions as to how this plays out and what parts of the sales force get the boot.

I don't think Roche want qPCR because they already have qPCR, and doing quite well in the diagnostic market.

Gregory Lucier, Life's chief

Gregory Lucier, Life's chief executive since 2003, has come under criticism for spending too freely on acquisitions and not focusing enough on increasing sales of the company's research products and services, which account for about 85% of Life's revenue. Mr. Lucier scored "well below average"

All of these buyouts are just an admission by management that it has no clue. I think the the whole LIFE buyout process was mismanaged, This deal was so public, an hour by hour update for 3 months. This had to have cost the company key people and made the customers think WTF??

WSJ: "There's always been the

WSJ:

"There's always been the thought that current management is creating an overhang on shares," said David Ferreiro, an Oppenheimer & Co. analyst. "The entire Street thinks that someone else can run Life better than Life can."

Gregory Lucier, Life's chief executive since 2003, has come under criticism for spending too freely on acquisitions and not focusing enough on increasing sales of the company's research products and services, which account for about 85% of Life's revenue. Mr. Lucier scored "well below average" and was ranked last in a recent survey by Brendan Wood International that gauged shareholder confidence in the chief executives of 30 large health-care companies.

Life and Lucier declined to comment for this article."

Did anyone here NOT see this

Holy shit, the siRNA biz will

Thermo already has a distribution center in Virginia or Pennsylvania dont they? If so that will most likely be the end of Life's MD distribution.

"BOD accepted thermo fisher's

"BOD accepted thermo fisher's bid, announcement in coming days. deal expected to be closed by oct-nov."

Synergies by end of year? Someone should start a new thread, "What's going on at Thermo?" That would enable a smooth "integration" of the rumor mill.
