RE: [Histonet] Good Bye

From:"Baldridge, Lee Ann"

We had a very similar experience with said company. The techs doing the
work said "NO" and they proceeded to go around, over and through us.
Thank heavens we had back up and said company was asked what did the
people in the lab say.  It took us MONTHS to get that piece
of....machinery out of our lab.  Because of their practices we avoid
them at all costs.

Thank goodness, my director stood by me several years ago, when Ventana
went around me to her and "sold" her on the immunostainer by touting its
barcoding and offering new processors if we would convert to their
system. What I said was, "Why would I want to change to more expensive
immuno system to get a processor that I don't want in the first place?"
She listened and they went away after quite some time of harrassing her
and the pathologists. 

Unfortunately, they ruin a good product with behavior like this. 

Joe, please don't leave us. We need you.

Dear All,
  I normally just read what is going on in the world of Histonetters and
do not write, but I think that Joe's Employers should have stuck by him
before taking the Vendors side.
  Just by reading all of his good advice over this last year, I have
found that he has great judgment.  I think that the Bosses should have
considered that and told the Vendor that maybe there is a good reason
for Joe's dissatisfaction.
  I have left a job where one person can cause problems and my side was
never asked for my Bosses blindly believed a jealous person.  So maybe
bosses should value their employees and stand by them,  the Vendor is
not doing the work for them after all, Joe is.
  By the way I moved on to a job where having a brain and the knowledge
to trouble shoot and get the work done is not taken for granted.  I am
very valued for what I can do.  As we all should be valued, we do great
work and have an important place in Health Care, be it Human or Animal.
  So keep up your spirit and fire Joe.
  I would be proud to stand by you, and not behind you!
