The Rochester NY office is holding an open house on Saturday, 6/1. Some big wigs from Eagan, sorry MSP, are also attending. They have a lot of f---ing nerve. They're the reason it's closing. If I wasn't worried about losing my severance I might say something. Looking forward to seeing so many former co-workers!

Have a lot of fond memories of visiting the Rochester sites and the people who populated them. Hope the open house was cathartic for them. Wish I could have attended.
Can't say the same if and when they clear out the City That Dwight Built...
@8few: This open house was actually a positive thing (well, making lemonade from lemons I suppose). The Rochester site gave us an opportunity to visit the building one last time, reconnect with co-workers we haven't seen in a long time and share good memories. We received a beautiful memory book with pictures of LCP (pre-Thomson). If you're not familiar with Rochester, LCP has deep roots in the city and the work site is in a historical building with "secret" passageways and half floors and the building's foundation is actually in the Genesee River. The event was entirely optional and was a touching send-off.
I've been complaining about this sort of thing to my HR rep at [email protected] I'd recommend doing the same.
Drinks and speeches?
Would have been fun if everyone tossed their "Be Here Now" signs in the Genesee (although it would be polluting).
Laid off 25 years ago this month. Might have attended the "open house" if I had ever heard it was happening.
Shameless *! Rubbing salt into the wounds.
Open house for what purpose though?
They had an open house for all current former employees to attend. The Rochester location is closing at the end of September 2019. John Elstad was there. Happily not Rick King. It wasn't mandatory. It was a nice turnout and well done, probably because Eagan, sorry MSP, didn't have anything to do with it.
Who from Eagan is going to that?
Sorry you have to attend this. What is the purported reason for this open house?
