Who else can they give the award to? Only other business in Carlsbad is that shitty Pizza Port. The rest of the people there are cougar retirees.

Given relative trajectories over the last decade, I would have thought the CEO of ViaSat (who actually founded the company and built it from the ground up) would have gotten it.

If Thermo buys Life Singapore

If Thermo buys Life Singapore is done! They already have PCRs, including real-time PCRs

What Thermo will do is to convert ex-Life customers to their own gradually, after the revenue from ex-Life PCR instruments is close to zero. They will just shut down the whole site and lay off everyone

Celebrating its tradition of

Celebrating its tradition of excellence and leadership, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, whose founding precedes the incorporation of the City of Carlsbad by more than 30 years, chose “Our Place in Time” as the theme of the 90th anniversary celebration and Annual Business Awards Dinner.

To mark the milestone anniversary, the pool of finalists for this year’s business awards was made up of past annual awards winners. The winners this year received special “of the decade” awards.

During the event, the chamber presented awards in the following categories:

• Businessperson of the Decade – Greg Lucier, chairman and chief executive officer of Life Technologies Corp.

Not true. I am a current mfg employee in MD. Not disgruntled nor upset. I don't care what others are saying. A good decent job with little responsibility.

Biotechnology company Life

Biotechnology company Life Technologies Corp. could lose its investment grade rating if it isn’t able to sell itself and reacts by borrowing money to buy back shares or pay shareholders a dividend, according to a report by Moody’s Investors Service.

GL , make me some money and sell this POS. Otherwise, else company stock will go from 65-35.

You dumb fuck, I was laid off from LIFE and found a rewarding career at Thermo Fisher. Now I am much happy working for a first rate company in their M&A group. I will enjoy the slice and dice once the deal go through.

Frederick will remain no

Frederick will remain no matter what will happen. Only R&D, IT and DCs. Mfg and services in 7335,7300 will be gone.

"Frederick has the best

"Frederick has the best talents in LIFE. We have the best managers, directors. We have the best facilities, data center and most of all logistics. Steve Curran, Mark Macera, Rick Rimer, EHS, Facilities...etc...... LIFE will remain as it is."

I dont know what you've been smoking, but can I have some. Macera is about the only decent manager/director/supervisor in the whole Frederick site. Really lit a fire under the ass of some of the deadasses there. ALL of the other Distribution supervisors are total wastes of space, with the exception of Rod. Merhl is an asshole whos not fit to manage a McDonalds on the night shift and needs to learn to talk to people before someone bitch slaps him. I could go on about the others but I'm sure some others here will share their horror stories.
