I work at Bard Corporate Office. When can we expect to be laid off?
I was wondering if anybody who was affected by the latest round of layoffs could tell us what kind of severance package was offered to them? It doesn't look like layoffs will be done any time soon, so it'd be nice if we at least knew what we can... read more

My husband has worked for BD for 40 years. they just.layed off 2 people in his building in the Sparks, Maryland plant. He got a letter saying these layoffs will be done in waves and it will continue through till next March.
Every year at this time, too bad that the people who wants to leave they don't let them go. Been there. BD is still a great place to work for.
BD was suking the life out of me. You can almost see the darkness and negativity in the halls. What a dreadful place to work. I was there for over 15 years and it kept getting worse. The culture went from "lets succeed as a team" to "who can I step... read more

BD pretty much lost its soul to greed and shareholders. Where I work it's pretty much gone down hill the last 10 years ,and some workers finally had enough and tried to push for a Union after some departments have been on mandatory overtime for at... read more
Years ago after being laid off (to be precise it took place in 2008) I started looking for ways to cover costs if I was RIF'ed again. There were two things I found, one IncomeAssure won't cover you unless you have held your job for 24 months and and... read more
Good luck to all affected, I know it's not easy to be laid off, I hope all of you find something better very quickly. I have somewhat similar experience when it comes to layoffs - it was not pretty at all. I was already affected - happened when BD... read more
Long story short, I didn't realize my own potential. I didnt belong working the daily grind. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my job while I was there. But since being laid off I have started a very succesful business and I am truely happy! If It was... read more
BD was once a great place to go into and walk out of happy. People enjoyed the good ol' days of BD. Things change, management shuffles. We entrust the Board of Directors to represent the company. The perverbial "torch" is passed on, we've had some... read more
Is there any warning to those who were getting laid off or was it a complete surprise shock? Do they give you any explanation? With layoffs supposedly starting today, just curious if I should start packing my cube early.

I was laid off last year and it was a blessing in disguise. I moved on and found a job that’s more rewarding and pays better. I think the job market for IT is good and one should be able to transition easily if you happen to be cut. I still have... read more

That's the tally for today. Not sure about other locations. #EverySingleYear
I heard that the Bard acquisition is delayed to November due to the ongoing court case with shareholders. Whether this will prolong / delay the scheduled layoffs in September is yet to be seen. The dates I keep hearing are September 14th, 18th and... read more
To-the-point, useful information here. It's always good to get a loud-and-clear wakeup call backed by what appears to be solid information, even if the writing has been on the wall (or at least it should have been) following the long ago shift in BD... read more
I recently resigned as a Senior Director as I have been involved in the planning for a reduction in force and know that my team is being impacted. There is redundancy following the acquisition of Bard but that has only increased the number impacted... read more

What I have observed: disfunctional, arrives late/ leaves early, takes credit for subordinate's accomplishments and blames for manager's lack of knowledge, leadership, laziness. Much more, but the main question is: how can a "successful" company... read more
