Guess what I got today?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Remember I told you all about the new company name that I came up with and the HR lady tried to steal it? Well today she came into my office and handed me an envelope and started to leave the room. I asked her what it was and she said it was a check for $100 for naming the company. Then she sent an email out to the whole company announcing it. Seems my letter to the CEO paid off! She definately did it begrudgingly. I don't care.... at least a wrong was made right! So now it's official and I can tell you what I named our company. It's Prolexys. The lawyers ok'd it and the board approved it.

What kind of a company do you work for? I like the name! I am so glad you got the recognition you deserve!! I feel badly I don't know all that much about you yet (like what kind of work you do)...I have been missing in action for awhile due to unforeseen circumstances, but I am so very happy for you! Hope to get to know you better!

Hi Debby! I work for a fairly new biotech research facility. We have a couple areas of focus. One is drug discovery related to Parkinson's, a couple of other neuro diseases and colon cancer. We also produce a data base of human proteins and protein reactions that we sell to other pharm companies etc.

I'm a lab techinician and do just about everything! I make reagents including antibiotics and different drugs, buffers, etc. I also make plates with different drugs and antibiotics for research discovery. I also make big deals on consumables, drugs, chemicals and equipment and then purchase. Track down MSDS's for chemicals and reagents and keep up our MSDS data base. Last but not least! I do some plasmid DNA preps and a bit of cloning (DNA and proteins only!) Oh and I can't forget I sometimes grow, care for and harvest live cell lines. The whole thing gives me a headache!

That's what I do in a nutshell! I hope to also get to know you in the future!

Thanks everyone! I'm very happy things worked out. Now I can have some faith in our new CEO. It wouldn't have been a very good thing for morale if they didn't do the right thing. Because everyone knew where that name came from. Just glad it worked out!
