Thread regarding Fresenius Kabi layoffs

Fresenius Kabi USA - Info: Layoffs are in progress!

Fresenius Kabi Production Sterile Injectables just laid off all contractors.

They have also laid off about 20% of the full time workforce, folks that are on payroll...

They do not need production any more, and are looking to save every penny.

This is brutal and many people working at Fresenius Kabi USA were not expecting this.

Especially Full Timers as they always felt they were safe and they thought that only contractors will be cut. But the big whigs in the corporate office of Fresenius were not thinking the same way, so here it goes.

There is still plenty of lazy, slacking on the job employees still employed here... Many who were let go were top performers as well as deadweight, the company is in trouble and thats a fact. Start looking for another job now before the good ones are gone

@11KOtimC-3zzc 10 years, top performer, worked over paid hours each week to get the job done. Last sick day was 2011. You know nothing about what you're talking about.

Why would a company have such a large number of non productive employees? Points to poor management. What does canceling the Xmas party have to do with underachieving employees? Again not a confident indication of a healthy work environment!

All @3zzc is a troll and should be treated as such (just ignore her/him)...

If you work here, you know what happened.

@11KOtimC-4yxj thank you for standing up for those who were laid off, Contractors and FTE alike. It sounds like you are correct. @11KOtimC-3zzc is doing damage control. You may be right as well in thinking that this person is from HR or management. Manufacturing plants have always been a revolving door. Due to their very aggressive production requirements and poor management operations, people are always leaving. Employee engagement survey is a farce. They did not conduct employee survey in October of this year knowing that the results will be a true reflection of management - and they did not want that documented.
With @11KOtimC-3zzc bad mouthing everyone and anyone who were laid off is proof in itself.

@11KOtimC-3zzc, I wouldn’t know if there is any truth in your post, as I left few months ago. Don’t know how many impacted either, but I somehow doubt you knew every single terminated full timer in person. So either you are generalizing and making very rude and inconsiderate comments about all terminated full-timers based on your personal experience with one or two of them, or you are HR trying to do damage control, which is even worse.
And what about the laid off contractors, no empathy for them either? I somehow doubt they were all “lazy, miserable and cynical unwanted deadweight”.

These ridiculous rumors are not true. Probably started by disgruntled former employees hoping to cause panic and a mass exodus. Let’s be honest. The employees who were let go from Fresenius Kabi grand island weren’t “laid off” in the traditional sense. They were terminated for poor performance and every one of them had been disciplinary problems; written up multiple times, many were on their final written warning and/or had not been meeting the goals of performance improvement plans they had in place to remedy poor work behaviors. These “laid off” folks were some of the most lazy, miserable, and cynical employees. They called in “sick” constantly, abused medical leave programs, purposely slowed down production when they didn’t get what they wanted, refused to learn parts of their jobs, refused to do certain job duties, took extra long breaks, disappeared for hours at a time, and complained constantly about everyone and everything. Worst of all, they didn’t appreciate the opportunity to work for great pay and great benefits, despite the fact that most had no higher education, or prior experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing. They created a toxic work environment, forced the good employees to pick up there slack, and were polluting the work environment with their defiant attitudes. These were people that should have been fired ages ago. I say good riddance. Those left who should have been included in the recent purge let this be a lesson to you that if you don’t start changing your behavior and attitude you will be next. And for all my fellow co-workers that truly deserve to be at Fresenius Kabi now we can finally come to work without having to deal with all the negativity and dead weight. To my employers I say Thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting rid of the toxicity that was sleeping into every facet of this plant. Moving forward, let’s all work together as a team to make this a better and more productive operation.

Got a little too aggressive on hiring. Got rid of contract employees and low performing dead weight. Plant Closure is a lie.
