Nope. 2 decades and was tossed out like so much refuse.... and a hard working American. Many awards most associates never get in that time. Doesn’t matter. Thanks for playing though. It’s a warning. They DO NOT CARE about your work ethic, contributions... bottom line and $$$.
If you are worried... cut bait and run. Or, sit around and pretend you’ll have a position in the foreseeable future.
I believe 8 out of about 30 marketing related people were let go today. I heard next up is the regulatory group, quality, then r&d.
"Legacy" Bard layoffs are here for the BD acquisition. A number of marketing-related staff at the Bard Access Systems site in SLC were let go this afternoon.
The Bard and BD CIO's must be great friends by now. Responsible for outsourcing and ruining IT in both organizations. Sounds like HCL is just as bad as Cognizant.
You deserve what you get? That is an immature, rude and unnecessary response to Americans who have real concerns about being let go because it's not so easy to get a job in IT. You must be one of the chosen ones who gets to keep your job, for now. Go climb back under your rock now.
if, by this point, you are in IT and haven't figured it out already, you deserve what you get. wake up.
Some people are already jumping ship. This place is going down like the Titanic. No communication and business as usual - laughable. Get ready cause it will be the invisible cloak and dagger stabbing you in the back.
Who's left in IT? Bard outsourced everything to Cognizant and BD outsourced to HCL and Capgemini.
I heard IT will be hit again. Replacements have been trained and it's just a matter of time.
All about management and shareholders. They couldn't care less about employees. Moral is gone and the office feels like a funeral parlor. September can't come soon enough.
Heard on good authority that more layoffs coming in Sept. Not really surprising news with the acq. of Bard and since a repeat performance should have been expected after what followed CF 2 yrs ago. If this info is correct, and if you have been at BD for 10 to 15 yrs or longer, are in your late 40's, 50's or older, make a decent salary because you are great at what you do because you possess the skills and have put in the sweat equity due to your work ethic, are American, be prepared.
Hahaaa! It's all about the profit these days... BD laid off faithful employees that had been there for 15+ years after the Carefusion merger.... "Who the hell is Bard?" ... I'd get my resume updated and start looking,
Acquisition means restructuring. It's part of doing business and no getting around.
I would say yes BD only cares about money and could careless about Bards employees.
I'd look at the Carefusion acquisition and make your own determination...
