Pfizer Gone Silent Now. Internal Fighting and Finger Pointing

Now that Astra has weathered the storm Pfizer has gone dead silent and is not communicating with it's own employees. There's no more emails with updates or communications of any kind. This means the executives are desperate and blaming each other for Tiber own failures. It's come down to CYA time and they ate in a frenzy and a loss at what to do. Stick to it AZ, the giant is taking it's last breath and victory will be so sweat come Monday.

The Rumour Mill is not

The Rumour Mill is not completely useless. This is actually a very fascinating site which could make an interesting case study for someone interested in alternative communication forms using the internet. Consider some of the types of things that get posted here and possible motivations behind them:

Rumour of a new product coming from management: An inexpensive way to promote a product or to test market a concept. Not terribly productive, but, nonetheless, free. The same post coming from an employee: A way to get even with a company by revealing something that is supposed to be secret.

Posts that complain about working conditions: An anonymous way of trying to pressure a company into changing policy by trying to make it look bad in public.

Posts that brag about the superiority of a product or company: Possibly a job searcher using this site as a testimonial to his or her value by association with the product or company.

Posts that just criticize companies or individuals. Anonymous revenge.

Once in a while, there are posts that are actually rumours with the poster looking for confirmation.

Some posters like to analyze things that are going on in the industry. These could be anything from good Samaritans trying to help people understand things to consultant wannabes to far too much hot air. (This particular post is probably an example of the latter).

Some posts just seem to be done to get under peoples' skins and to generate a strong response possibly just for entertainment.

Some people just like to argue like the sophists in ancient Greece.

Enjoy the site, use it for what it is worth, but understand what it worth first.

AZ also has 6 months to make

AZ also has 6 months to make it harder to be taken over or to find a different suitor. All that Pfizer can really do directly is to discuss a better offer, look for another company to buy, or simply get on with their own business. For whatever lobbying Pfizer may do with AZ stockholders, AZ will be equally busy lobbying MPs, their own stockholders and persuading them at the offer is too low. Even if the stock price falls, AZ will do its best to convince people that it will rise again to a level above that which Pfizer might offer. The key AZ stockholder issue is the overall value of AZ and not the stock price du jour. The key economic issue for Pfizer is taxes. And taxes become a political issue as well.

No one can predict the future and whether Pfizer will continue their quest of conquest. Today's action by Pfizer and their brief statements just makes it much less likely that a deal will ever happen.

All part of the dance. AZ

All part of the dance. AZ will now be under tremendous pressure to start talking to Pfizer. That bid is gonna look pretty good in a few months time with Astras share price dropping like a stone. AZ will be part of Pfizer by end of year. And as for posting on biofind being a pointless waste of time? True. But nowhere near as unproductive as working in R&D.

Yes, I know the UK laws. Only a Mets or Cubs fan could be as optimistic about the future. Please check you dictionary for the word 'jilted'.

According to Reuters today,

According to Reuters today, Pfizer is abandoning its takeover attempt of AZ. I wonder how many man-hours of postings here about the takeover and projected consequences were made in vain. OK now: Everyone back to work !!

it's not over yet. Pfizer will be back by the end of the year

Pfizer is a great company

Pfizer is a great company with great employees and leadership which is second to none.

Really great. Try working at some dumb-arse start-up company and get your poo-hole raped by a bald man. Check your poo-hole for a minute and ask yourself: am I better off now than I was 4 minutes ago when the bald rapist sodomized my children to make a buck?

Chances are you'll agree with Pope Benedict.

That's much much worse than poor pay and terrible health benefits from a tedious dung-company like P-Fizer.

Check your bung-hole before you answer.

It's not just Pfizer. I was

It's not just Pfizer. I was recently called about a contract job with a different Company to work in a pilot plant. The pay? $17.50/hr.

When I was let go by Pfizer they tried to call me back on a contract too. They used to pay contractors $30-$40/hr but they wanted me back at $18/hr. My mortgage payment at the time was $2300/month. $18/hr wouldn't have even covered that after taxes.

They're all a joke these days.

A recruiter representing

A recruiter representing Pfizer just contacted me about a job that is a "contract" job (W-2) with no benefits as is normal for contract jobs.
The pay offered by Pfizer sucks cows ass- and after Fed, State, Fica taxes are paid, the joker job would be worth about $12.00/Hour.
When fast-food workers are now lobbying for $15.00/Hour.
Pfizer CEO can lick my dick.
I'll flip burgers and get paid a few bucks more than this dung-hole

Are you the same supercilious poster found on this and other threads? You know, the one with all the tediously-long smart-ass comments? Perhaps you are the one with too much time on your hands?

"this means that

"this means that executives..blah, blah, blah...."

No. It means nothing at all. If you are actually a Pfizer employee and not just another Biofind retard with a PC, you'd do well to remember that the level that these discussions occur at is a level you are incapable of reaching or performing at. For example, i drove over a turd on the road yesterday and killed some flys and parasites in the process. I did not email these creatures first.

You can say that about just

You can say that about just about anyone who comes here to read and/or post. Most of what is written here is just a big joke and a diversion from other things. The spelling thing was simply a reminder not to take this place too seriously. Your comment simply tells me that you have as much extra time on your hands and like writing nonsense as much as I do.

Just smile about it, bro.

Wow, spelling is that

Wow, spelling is that important to you on BioFind. Must have lots of free time, did mama fall asleep and leave you all alone again?

All of the Pfizer and AZ

All of the Pfizer and AZ threads will follow suit.

btw, it's sweet, not sweat, on Monday and all other 'daze'.
