What did folk think of this? There was a lot of talk about the ‘data’, but a notable lack of it actually shared. Just broad assertions like “women and people of colour are underrepresented” and “white men had the largest advantage in the hiring... — read more
Seems like there is a large top-down push to get projects tied up for September/October from management, right around the mid-year review cycle and entering of graduates. Even individuals are being pushed to document and tie up their work under the... — read more
The company has been given a few months to get it's affairs in order, but the deal is dead. Expect a lot of manuevers before official announcements in the coming months.
PoU Date - 5 September WFH Ends - 27 September Everyone prepared to act surprised when there is a "restructuring". Before the offer letters arrive?
