Laid off and loving it!

Best thing that could have happened to me. Laid off by SJM 2 months after they acquired us. My boss and his boss got laid off the same day I did. If that isn't slash and burn I don't know what is. Great severance, I went 5 months without having to... — read more

There were about 70 employes, VP, Directors, Managers, and operators. Mostly were old-timers. Seniority does not exit in St. Jude, it is only who you know. Most young people leave on their own. It is very sad to be here. Many people wish to be on the... — read more

After reading through the comments here, I think I'd better start looking around, and I don't think it will be another med-device company.

I'm part of their most recent acquisition, and despite six months of "we like what you're doing so we won't change much" reassurances, we were all like deer in the headlights yesterday. My group in R&D lost nearly half (4 of 9) and the rest of us... — read more

About 40 people from Westford was impacted yesterday. Mostly long term employees, managers, engineers and R&D. Does anyone know if there will be more layoffs on this site in 2016 and whether they plan on closing the site down?
