Bio-Rad LSG: Why doesn't anyone here talk about it?

Have they become that irrelevant in the industry, or are they that perfect?

"PFD is not me too, me too.

"PFD is not me too, me too. It's a junk science collection, SELDI for example.
Made by junky scientists."

To be fair, most scientists there are qualified professional. Junky part are managers. Those managers only mission is their surviving and promotion.
SELDI derived managers such as LL at LSD is a perfect example.

PFD is not me too, me too.

"A better question, why would you even want to work for them? Me too, me too, Me too.
Because most of those work in LSG couldn't get a job at a company that's actually innovative. They're comfortable in their mediocrity."

"Studying BR owner's

"Studying BR owner's education background, culture, etc. is unavoidable when it came to understanding of how they operate company.
This is the kind of anti-Semitism that amazingly still exists today. So you're saying that because of the frugal, money-grubbing way the company is run, it's because of the owner's religious backgound? I can't believe this narrow-minded mentality still exists in 2010.
"
Why frugal, money-grubbing is related to religious backgound? And why saying owner frugal, money-grubbing is anti-semitism?

Do you mean that if a Jew is frugal and money-grubbing, nobody shall comment on it?? It sounds racism is behind the whole logic.

LSG will be in big trouble in

LSG will be in big trouble in 2011. One of their fastest growing product lines will be severely hampered. You mean PCR?
PCR is also hampered PCR has too many royalties paid to LifeTech for LSG to make much margin.
Bioplex product line will suffer in 2011 more than any other.

"I don't care what religion

"I don't care what religion morons are they're still morons running the entire company.

...Please cool it with the anti-semitic remarks. How the company is run or in the frugal way it is run, has no relevance to their religion.

*************************************
I agree, there is no place for anti-religion remarks. However, I will appreciate this same type of outrage is expressed when people make offensive comments about individuals from Africa, LatinAmerica or Asia. For some groups (like Jewish, Muslims) religion is the key, for others is the race and for others is their ethnic background. Hope some folks will undertand this fact before they purposely "confuse" the origins of a co-worker or make fun of their skin color. Everyone must be respected, including his/her religious beliefs."

In short, LSG is noly capable

In short, LSG is noly capable to barely hang there until being sold, or collapse after DS died.

"LSG managers are so narrow-minded that it will soon pass into oblivion.

LSG managers are micro-managers.

LSG managers have no vision.

NS sees no future for LSG.
BC is just there to collect his paycheck and leer at a few of the women, and I mean only a few because there are only a few worth a second glance.

SJ is in over his head. Product development divisions reporting to a manufacturing manager, huh?

SH, TT, BK, AT are all too busy trying to protect their turf rather than serve the customers well."

What will happen after DS

What will happen after DS pass away?
According to Jewish law:
The eldest son, if firt born, is entitled to a share of the estate that is twice that of his brother. If there are four brothers, for example, the eldest would receive 40 per cent of the inheritance and the other three would get 20 per cent each

Apparently, other borthers will not be able to manage either CDG or LSG.
So NS will get twice portion as his brothers. Will they sell Bio-Rad then divide cash?

OMG the LSG corporate

OMG the LSG corporate overview says that Bio-Rad ranks in the top 5 life science companies worldwide. LOL. That hasn't been the case for years. LSG got left in the dust about ten years ago. I'd be surprised if they're in the top 20.

There are five life science suppliers left? I thought all the good companies were bought by Invitrogen and the crappy ones were bought out by GE.

BC has to find excuses to justify his top 1 or 2 income.

NS is getting rather impatient with LSG profit growth, or lack thereof. All the investments in the past few years have been to acquire diagnostics companies. LSG days are numbered unless they can pull off a great success in the next year or so.

"Manufacturing overhead is

"Manufacturing overhead is too heavy, that's a fact. I doubt upper management has a plan to solve it. Many of the people in manufacturing are lifers that have immunity because they know somebody in the Schwartz clan who can protect them. Especially since one of the Schwartz son's (SS) wife (AS) works in manufacturing."

Then low rank workers not in union might be the target?

Is this just your opinion or does higher management actually have a plan to RIF a bunch of lower-level managers?

But pretty much everybody buys resins and gels, so it makes money.

LSG is in terrible shape:
"The Life Science segment net sales for the second quarter were $150.7 million, up 0.6% compared to the same period last year. On a currency-neutral basis, Life Science segment sales decreased by 0.1% compared to the second quarter of 2009."

The decrease meant LSG still in recession mode. Will BC be forced to leave soon?

So true about the yes men. I

So true about the yes men. I have known of a couple there that couldnt say anything but yes. But its all good. As soon as the ass they kiss bids adieu, these yes men shuffle out quickly. Ive seen it time and time again. Like I said, just give em time (or rope) and they will take care of themselves :)

Hey happened in the SF area for LSG. I see a regional manager req. No more SR? If so, that's too bad; he was one of the good ones but then again, he wasnt a yes man now was he.
