    Bad Eggs

    While reading through your mostly negative messages about Bard I can't help but ponder the fact that with employees with
    attitudes like yours, its a mirale that the company makes a dime. I do not know about your divisions (Mass. divisions are mentioned a
    great deal), but Davol has been a great company both in terms of profit and aggresiveness. Upper management has set agressive
    goals and are determined to meet those goals. If Bard could be made up of 10 or 15 Davol's then the company would be flying high
    as opposed to just getting by. Forget about the past, suck it up, and change your shitty attitudes about the company. after
    all, at one point in your life you made a maojor decision to join Bard and based upon your messages, the company has has done
    poorly ever since you joined. What did you do to help the company. Did you ever have the balls to mention these problems when you
    worked there. Maybe you attended the stockholders meeting since you had so many great ideas. I'm sure that all of the people that
    are bad mouthing Bard in these messages are adding a lot of value to their new companies by promoting the same type of negetive

    • BOY OH BOY dont we ride the Davol Bandwagon, you seem to forget that your comment "if Bard could only be made up of 10-15 Davols" wouldnt the world be a lovely place, Well my friend, the reality is your amazing COO and President Benson, is a former Davol cronie and look at where your company continues to go. The real Bard facts are as follows

      1. While all of its Major competetors continue double digit growth year after year aka/ Boston Scientific, Guidant, Medtronic, Kendall, and others Bard sits on it's ass and relies on an incompetent executive team to lead it into the 21st century, buying and partnering with has beens and never will be's in the Medical Device Market.

      2. The stock is no better today with the "raging bull" market that we are in than when Wild Bill Longfield announced his
      creative, ingenious plan to unveil to the world "Disease State Management". Disease state management, give me a break, how about
      hiring a corporate director of R&D and develop something more creative than a foley catheter that inhibits bacteria growth, cause
      we all know how well that product is selling. Better that Bard should have unveiled EXECUTIVE STATE MANAGEMENT and rid itself
      of half of its executive team exclusive of about the only 2 people in the entire executive staff that know their his asses from
      their elbows, Tim Ring and Guy Jordan. But of course they will never get to show their true talents while Bopp aka. Mr. Peepers
      controlls the purse strings and continues to worry about that massive dividend that they jokingly pay to shareholders EVERY year.

      3. When was the last time that Bard made a REAL acquisition or strategic partnership that contributed anything substantial
      to the bottom line. 2, 3, and 4% growth in the past 5 years is inexcusable and it's about time the institutional shareholders
      held these bunch of bumblers accountable. Stop crying about the dam Cardiovascular business dragging Bard down, and either
      acquire something significant,like or unload USCI once and for all. And PS watch your Urology business continue to get chipped away
      while BSC kicks your green ass
