[Histonet] Good Bye

  Yours is not an isolated case.
  Ventana's sales practices involve the following behaviours:
  1- go above the knowledgeable people to the managers to "pull the rug" in front of their eyes;
  2- offer things they cannot deliver;
  3- conceal that their products are unnecessarily overpriced and that their instruments are essentially a "closed" system;
  4- conceal also that their "famous liquid coverslip", imprescindible to complete their staining protocols, is nothing more than low viscosity mineral oil and because of that you have to use their Abs diluted in it;
  5- and push, push, push until the nauseating level.
  That is why I do NOT like Ventana.

  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!
