coming B4 year end.
Well said, and I would agree with you in most other situations, but in life you get in return what you dish out. Those that run this company have been shitting on the employees (me included) for years. And like alot of other companies I've heard about they use the guise of a bad economy to further dump on us. The revolving door of temps and contractors is bad for morale. They fire people for the stupidest of reasons more likely to cut their bottom line. If there is a Hell most of these managers/supervisors/directors are headed there as well as some of the employees who backstab and connive to further their own miserable "careers".
I like to come here to hear the latest info on the company. This site is devolving into constant slurs and obscenities. I feel like I am standing around in an elementary school yard listening to a bunch of bullies. If you are calling people names and slandering people you are being a bully. What you are doing is not ok, it is not funny and you are not helping the situation. You may feel helpless, we all do, but you would be better off finding something positive to do for yourself, your family or community, rather than to spend your time here degrading others. I have friends that complain about conditions and equipment at their workplace and I tell them maybe it is a choice between better conditions and layoffs. This company has to make the numbers just like every other company. Try to think of a way to improve the situation and if you can't, thank God that you have a job. There is a little thing in your brain called the amygdala and it registers everything you do, however it can not distinguish between what you do to others and what is done to you. Everything you do to emotionally injure someone else is registered just as if it was done to you. So you see there is a physical correlate to the golden rule. Bullies end up with just as many anxiety disorders as those who have been bullied. The only immediate relief is to try to bully even more but that just leads to more anxiety. If you want out of the loop, try doing something kind for someone else. Love your neighbor as yourself, you will end up enjoying life a LOT more.
Black Diamond Crampons. With front points if you have to get stuff off the high shelves.
I recall horrid working condition in the freezer. The floor iced up alot causing slips, and falls. They still dont' fix it?.
"Management clowns think they are in touch with the day to day operations when a paper cut is escalated for discussion in their daily meetings"
Thats because they are too stupid to know whats going on around there. And dont get them started on the slippery floor in the freezer, they act like people are too dumb to walk on a wet floor. One supervisor always harps about watching out for forklift drivers and letting them know you are passing by them. If the drivers cant see his fat ass around they shouldnt be driving a forklift.LOL
Darn! back to the 40's.
"Make no mistake, this is a "good" but not "great" business. Sales rose 5% in 2011 (to $3.8 billion) and 1% in 2012, and they are expected to rise just 3% in 2013 and 2014, according to consensus forecasts. Operating profits have never exceeded $650 million, meaning this stock trades for around 16 times likely peak cash flow. That's quite rich for a company with limited growth prospects.
The recent move -- from $40 to $58 -- has left shares vastly overvalued, and there appears to be little upside, even if the company is sold. If Life Technologies doesn't get acquired, shares may disgorge all of those gains."
From thestreet.com earlier today. Discuss "quite rich", "limited growth prospects", "vastly overvalued" and "little upside" ...
Management clowns think they are in touch with the day to day operations when a paper cut is escalated for discussion in their daily meetings.
Continuous improvement is a joke at Life. In order to replace 30 year old critical instruments, that is better in productivity and quality, we have to sell other equipments! Broken instruments can't be replaced. Service techs are constantly coming up with inventive ways to fix instruments. Money is better spent buying yellow tape to section off a spot for my stapler. If not, I get docked 1 point.
"me on floor laughing me ass off."
What can I say, I aim to please.
"how does that make MM a racist, if anything it would make him a food critic?LOL"
me on floor laughing me ass off.
MC is still there? Geez I thought they would have gotten rid of that moron. He's got the personality of a wet blanket.
Well he is from Texas.LOL
He has used plenty of racial slurs in conversations I have heard. Plus, most of his picks have not mounted to much more than flukes, hey what can you expect when you work side by side with MC.
So how does that make MM a racist, if anything it would make him a food critic?LOL
Them make funny my foods. that'sno racist me knownot wat iz.
"You too MM, you deserve to get bitched slapped one day, keep up your racial tone."
I agree on everything else in your post, but where how is MM a racist? I mean the DC has just about every ethnic group represented I figure if he was bigoted there would not be any minorities working for him.
"Regulated" R u high? Only IVD is. Nd that's stretch. Just mo B.S.
"Agreed! This isn't a rumor board it's a Frederick winer board! If you all hate it so much quit and get another job! Tired of the whining, this board is for posting news and rumors not backstabbing and whining. Get off and get a twitter account"
Hmmmmmm, sounds like some one came to work without their knee pads and Astroglide.
This is news you fuck, employees are being shitted on, ok, deal with it. It needs to be heard. News does not always need to be good. People are just shedding some light on their view. These mother fuckers lie and people that work hard and do the right thing everyday are tired of it.
Y'all should start a new thread called "LIFE Frederick Whiners." That way, those of us interested in LIFE wouldn't have to listen to you so much. Just a thought.

MC is a back stabbing fruit cake with the personality of a dead lab rat. He does nothing but throw people under the bus. For a guy that has been there that long, he knows nothing about the operation. All he does is follow the other little piece of shit MM and taste test his shit all day. How does it taste MC? Your a fucking scared little prick who has no say in anything you do, Grow some balls. You too MM, you deserve to get bitched slapped one day, keep up your racial tone.
"MM has reduced temps by hiring the good ones and got Reno approved."
By hiring "the good ones" as you say means hiring fat bimbos who come to work wearing short shorts and screwing employees when she was barely there a couple of weeks herself then yes I suppose your right.LOL
"Y'all should start a new thread called "LIFE Frederick Whiners." That way, those of us interested in LIFE wouldn't have to listen to you so much. Just a thought."
Sorry to rain on your parade you happy bastard. Someone actually "interested" in LIFE thats a new one. You must be one of the "yes people" who have no life outside of "LIFE". Oh and you got a little something dribbling down your chin there, better wipe it off.
Reduced temps?????? How so when all they do is keep firing people left and right and they end up replacing with MORE temps. And really the only ones they keep are the back stabbers anyway.
How ignorant are all of you? MM has done more for the DC than any other leader. ML and TC did absolutely nothing! MM has reduced temps by hiring the good ones and got Reno approved. Think about it, he squeezed money out of GL and is trying to get the bathrooms fixed and a new break room. Should I mention he got rid of 12 hr shifts. You all don't get it.
Never had any issues with the maintainence dept. I guess if they call MM "lower than scum" they have good reason. Maintenence dept. has a budget like every other dept. and if the powers that be dont provide them with enough money to work with how will shit get fixed? Like the old saying goes "shit runs down hill" so it's those above the maintenence dept. calling the shots causing all these problems in the DC.
"MM is way up the food chain compared to maintenence personnel so if he said jump they would say how high". Maintenance guys say MM is lowest scum. Dat y nothing got fix dudes.! they aint shy about talking shits in thier shop.
Should'nt have to "go upstairs" to use the bathrooms. If the dumb son of a bitches would have made those downstairs with enough stalls to handle the number of employees they would have this problem.
"Regulated product gets made upstairs and MM already cleared the DC to go upstairs to use the bathrooms. I hope you pay more attention in your job and quit whining."
Whats to pay attention to in regards to the job? A retarded monkey could pick and pack the shit, for the way they treat us and pay us they might as well hire retarded monkeys. At least the upstairs bathrooms are availiable now so we dont have anymore shit piles on the steps.
Regulated product gets made upstairs and MM already cleared the DC to go upstairs to use the bathrooms. I hope you pay more attention in your job and quit whining.
"Bathrooms in the DC don't work because MM doesn't stand up to the maintenance people and make them permanent fixes. Maintenance blames problems on us, MM is not helping and MC is weak, so nothing get fix. Reno is also causing issues with utilization of the bathrooms. Why cant we use the new ones upstairs.?"
It's not that he dont stand up to them, he just dont give a damn about his employees. And besides MM is way up the food chain compared to maintenence personnel so if he said jump they would say how high. And MC is little more than a weak sister, talks shit about people behind their back but not to their face, someone needs to kick him in his vagina.

"Given Frederick is the most talked about site on this mill, why would O'donnell or Lucier not doing anything about it? So close by 2014 EOY. Like a cancer, if you can cure it then kill it."
They dont give a crap about the Frederick site, maybe one of their flunkies will pop in once a year to look the place over but nothing ever changes for the better. Same asshole supervisors and directors and Gestapo-like human resources dept. No wonder the Frederick site is right next door to a sewer treatment plant, they both reek of shit. I hope they do close it down as having them as neighbors is driving down property values in the entire business park.
"You obviously are ignorant of the time. It is 2013 you frigging idiot. LOL."
What, they have changed their menu preferences now? Then it must be roasted shit they are cooking up at break in the lunch room. Probably the reason none of our bathrooms work worth a damn either.
"A little late to this argument, but other then stinking up our microwaves in the breakrooms with your dog stirfry and goat meat burritos I myself have nothing against Chinese,Burmese, or Hispanics.LOL"

fuck all of you, go kill yourselves and lay in your own blood and feces! Fuck off you whinny bunch of souras cock suckers. fuck you and die!
"Frederick closing EOY 2014."
Too bad no actual date has been set, then I could fly in to witness it and gloat at all the ass-kissers who thought their job was safe.
Frederick closing EOY 2014.
A little late to this argument, but other then stinking up our microwaves in the breakrooms with your dog stirfry and goat meat burritos I myself have nothing against Chinese,Burmese, or Hispanics.LOL
"WTF wrong with Burmese, Chinese, Latinos. Damn bigot."
Nothing at all, just pointing out that disguising ones posts to appear as if you are from another country dont make a difference because there's plenty of foreign nationals working in the US sites.
WTF wrong with Burmese, Chinese, Latinos. Damn bigot.
"MO, Frederick is stinking to a new low. Watch your golden hair boy fail. Disgraceful bunch of idiots."
You must be referring to that brown-nosing dirt bag they sent over to 7311 because he pissed off everyone in 7302?
"3. Their will bee ate more bad write posts that some how threw off HR from phinding out whitch poster is actually in US bi not being very fluently anglaish."
HR couldnt find poop in a cess pool. In any case "bad write posts" dont matter since all they hire are foreigners (chinese,burmese, and all manner of hispanics) in the US so they wouldnt know if it came from Kalamazoo Mich. or Bangkok,Thailand.
1. LIFE will never again approach it's all-time hi of $65.84.
2. At a minimum, 10% of workforce will be let go (attrition/layoffs) by EOY.
3. Their will bee ate more bad write posts that some how threw off HR from phinding out whitch poster is actually in US bi not being very fluently anglaish.
4. Stock will be back around $40 sometime before EOY.
5. Sometime in the next couple of years, GL will manage to sell this dawg before it totally craters, so he can salvage part of his big pay day while everyone else gets screwed.
If you don't like back-stabbing, brown-nosing, constant reorgs, layoffs, poor decision making, pie in the sky group think, CEO worship or the life show, maybe LIFE Technologies is not the right place for you.
Good Luck all. Peace out. Elvis has left the building and sold all his remaining shares. Ba-bye!
5. Sooner than that.
6. LIFE is a show. That's all it is just a show.
7. Elvis is not dead?
GL? He is always cheating the employee, the customer, the wall street, the shareholders...He's thoroughly a lier in his life!
$500MM+ shareholder values gone in a split second. Thanks GL. ya DMF
It was so-called "value" based on nothingness, mixed with leaks and rumors. None of the fundamentals of the company have changed over the last 6 weeks to generate a billion in shareholder value.
