Post your thoughts guys? I am anxious, it's not that we had the best culture, but I liked working here. So, in short, I am anxious. All the best...

A lot of layoffs will be in Europe and India. Merck HQ is in Germany, no need for another one in Switzerland (St Gallen -> gone). GSS team also might be reduced because the global functions are all located in the HQ (Merck has no GSS center in India...). Taufkirchen will become obsolete just like Lyon or Poole. Which production site will be closed - who knows. Just search for "merck serono geneva closing" how Merck streamlines their portfolio.
I am very nervous & hoping it will be a good thing. Never thought this would happen to Sigma. Have been here a long time as alot of my fellow workers. Planned on staying here until retirement. I know there will be jobs lost. Best of luck to everyone.
Merck has laid off Millipore employees and sold off parts of its business, it also promises to save 340 million but cost reduction. There will be lay offs namely in St. Louis
