How are things going since Lonza's acquisition?
haha, yeah JH and OM are two prizes for sure.
What do you expect from this place, the lies come straight form the top, SK only want his leadership team to obey that's why they are in the jobs they are in.
That circle has their mangs and sups that will comply with all their wishes. Try working for BT for a while and then you can complain.
Yeah JH is a total joke but since he's in with the crowd he can do what he wants.
So many two faced people at this place, every group has their special individuals try dealing with OM. Its even at the top does anyone believe that MC is sincere about anything that he says? What a napoleon complex.
Haha, JH is a perfect example of failing at your job and getting to stay, promoted even! Let's not get started on a list of back stabbers at lonza, that could drag on for a while.
I need to go have a drink! only one more day before i have to return to that dump and deal with all the fakers an lazy butt kissers.
There's a reason that Lonza has an industry-wide reputation as a bunch of drunks. Dulling the pain of working there is most of it.
you might try kissing jh's butt..laff when he tells you his unh hand-up the horses ass story...booze helps dull the pain too. stay away from s.a. and m.h. as well...backstabbers both!!
Some of the recent posts here have been entertaining. You are all either naive, stupid, a combination of both or don't work at Lonza.
Do any of you really believe that the SLT cares about individuals here? Those of us not in the accepted circle are totally expendable and will be dumped on the whim of these spineless yes men.
They are in their positions because the Swiss want people who obey. They only care about the bottom line. So when the SLT gets an order to reduce OH they do it.
Do they do it right? No, these are not ethical individuals (no matter how much training they make us take on ethics) you can be a failure at your job but if you are on their good side you'll be kept, I'm sure everyone can come up with an example from their own groups.
Some advice if you wish to stay. Even if you are right, do not challenge someone in authority here, you will be blacklisted and it will come back to haunt you. It's easy to see who's in and who's not, learn to play ball (suck up whenever possible certain managers and directors with the bigger ego's love it)
If there are more cuts coming, believe they will use the opportunity to rid themselves of what they consider a nuisance.
If you're not already in good with the inner circle, keep your mouth shut, except to nod and say yes a lot. If you're not already looking, start looking, there are other (better) opportunities out there, the 9/80 schedule is great for conducting a job search!

I feel totally confident that the oe teams will save us all,hahahaha
The ship may have sprung another leak. Heard there is possibly another cut coming. Hopefully some dead weight can go in this round. After that we should be ok the OE groups and the life at lonza teams will save us all. With the reductions is there still going to be an employee retention team?
Didn't you hear? Management had a meeting to tell us we are all safe now, surely they can be trusted, can't they?
We were making money this year (just not as much as they had hoped) and now that they sacrified some people the profit margin will be even more....what's a few more lives affected as long as our leaders are safe and secure in their jobs.
Just got home from my shift at Lonza, heard talks that more will be going. Maybe tomorrow... Thank God I have friday off...I hope I'm safe for now until I can get into something more stable. I want to know why Lonza lied to all of us? This place sure has changed. It sucks how management gives us all the same old crap, when they know the truth.
Lies and Layoffs...we are going down.
How many got laid off?
They should but it won't happen, they all look out for each other and they have their HR lap dogs who will go blindly along. They'll toss some poor slobs out the door and work themselves a nice increase.
I know that a few people are looking to get out when they lose enough quality poeple then it will be clear to all just how sad the leadership is.
Weren't we all back in this boat in 2003 when the leadership failed to take notice of where the market was heading.
Pretty much the same leadership that has us on this track right now, shouldn't some of them be losing their jobs at this point?
Lonza shares are falling and something has to be done. Layoffs and maybe liquidate any branches. Cell culture cell assays and cell transfection is might be alien to the Lonza management in Switzerland that is more familiar with classical chemistry. On the other hand why did they acquire it and have done that much marketing for Cambrex and Amaxa cell biology products?
Well they are bunch of cry babies and incompetent....but that doesn't take away from all the dead weight we have in Portsmouth or the terrible leadership...
Wow, what a bunch of whiney cry babies. You losers are all clearly Cambrex leftovers living in fear of the day Lonza figures out you're dead weight and cans your collective asses.
The lonza insiders club is alive and well....layoffs while acquiring another company? The company is not even losing money, still making 380M in profit.
Lonza cares about protecting jobs. People are the most valuable resource at lonza, blah,blah....what a joke.
Lonza management statements = lies
And now the Portsmouth site leadership is going to "fix" the Hop...we're doomed
Is the site alive, yes
Is the site Very busy, yes
Is the site Well, debatable.
psck of lies. the site is alive and well, and very busy.
So the Hopkington sight is closing?
There are rumors that Swiss Lonza wants to get rid of the Cambrex and Amaxa cell biology business they acquired not so long ago. Has anyone heard about this and more information?
Given Lonza's history on this site, I'm really surprised there haven't been more comments about this. The rumor mill must be truly dead.
layoffs??? are you serious?? well i know what i'm doing at work from now on..checking monster.com.
Hey mark whats up with you car it sounded like you needed a muffler.
yeah I heard that too....big layoffs for lonza...whats up wit that??? I thought the swiss said that lonza is #1?????. I guess they mean that they are a #2 shit shit shit shitholes....
Lonza sure screws with peoples lives...First us in Baltimore...then they make us move and now they lay you off....I guess they are running out of all that stolen gold they got from the 40's..
yeah there's more room now that the fat sausage is gone (KO'H). Lonza still sucks.
I agree. Great site.
Very nice site!
How did the hiring campaign go?
It has to be one of the most bizarre places to work at. So much potential an oppurtunity yet certain people there are dedicated and committed to making the wrong decisions for their own benefit.
they're doing a mass hiring campaign, I actually got a mass email that they were hiring.
What's the pay scale at Loza Hopkington? Supervisor etc...
Morale is low. A sense of instability.
What's the atmosphere at the Hopkington site today?
So what was with the reorganization in operations? Did anyone see that coming? Hopefully this will improve things.
I can't believe that I work with someone this bitter to comment so rudely on co-workers. Just leave if you are not happy, you drag down the hard-working, committed people who want to make the site a success.
Positive Change is Coming. The Portsmouth way is not the only way.
It will be around for a while. Lonza sunk too much money into the site to just walk away from it. Once the site gets its ducks in a row it will do well.
Hey does anyone know how long Lonza hopkinton is going to stay around????
I heard rumors inside, and I want to know if it is time to look elsewhere....
Are you kidding???? Her work the streets....
Who would want that P!g....
What a big time loser. She tries to act like she knows what she is doing, but really she is just f###ing LONZA.
My guess is that Lonza got smart and realised she was the wrong kissa## for their CULTURE......
Lonza keep going and get rid of the other dead ahole management before you lose all your respect, and the respect ofthe bio industry......
Bye Bye AV
Don't forget to only work the odd side of the streets....the even side are for the ones with teeth and are bug free....you STD..good bye to you pust face!!!

She now has time to WASH!!!!!the big pig!!!!!

BOO HOO LONZA FIRED THEM...It's about time Burger and Stephon got some balls the big Aholes, but it is a little too late the mass exodus has started, because there is still the wrong people in the upper management spots!!!!
Get rid of british bafone CD, HM, AM, fatty KO, Midget NP, Conman DH, comb over and back staber (remember Donna W how he had your back, now where are you FIRED!!!!)JM and don't forget DB.
Read the writing on the walls, Lonza cares...yeah right.....I can't wait to leave but sticking it out until the end is worth it, and seeing who is next to get fired!!!!!!!!
Rumor has it AV was fired?

How many contracts has Lonza Hopkinton lost anyway, and why? And aren't there any new contracts?
The FDA should inspect Lonza Walkersville
