I have been hearing (and reading) that September layoffs at Bard are imminent, but I can't find any concrete info on it. Is this just the usual rumor mill doing its job, or do we have any actual indicators to confirm that this is legitimate? Any info would be appreciated...

BD is going to strip mine Bard.
FYI - BD ALWAYS has a good amount of layoffs in Sept. The dates being thrown around here are the 14th and the 18th.
I know for a fact that Bard HR have shared layoff/redundancy policy with BD HR. Key dates from my understanding is September 22nd. Take your entitlement and go.
Rumors are a wonderful thing - to believe or not believe? The way that Bard management are treating people during this time of acquisition is appalling. Information provided is poor/misleading. The moral in the office is extremely bad. There are also lots of facts out there on what happened when BD purchased Carefusion - the fact is that there where large layoffs at Carefusion when the deal settled. In all honesty wait for September / Q1 FY18 and see what happens. If redundancy is offered, take it and leave. There are a lot better places to be than Bard/BD.
