St. Jude Medical Layoffs 2017

If you think about things in a rational way (not many people can do that - look at the latest election results), all business problems may lead to job cuts and reductions in St. Paul.

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

Another Round of Upcoming Layoffs...

Rumor has it that SJM will, once again, be laying off more people at their implantable medical device facilities including, but not limited to, Sylmar, Sunnyvale, Plano, and even Atlanta (CardioMEMS). I am guessing, as in past layoffs, there will be... 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

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?

Used to be like family.

Have to keep those shareholders happy. Seems like anyone with 15-20 years with the company is getting the axe. The days of the gold watch are long gone. This place has lost its soul and will grind you under its heel if you allow it. The Sylmar... read more


Pickens is a joke. They can't even produce the simplest of products without difficulty. They are plagued by the inability to hire qualified local talent and couple that with a completely inept manufacturing force and you have a recipe for disaster... read more
