They did you a favor

If you were laid off last week, consider yourself lucky. I know it might not feel that way right now, but in the long run you'll be much better than if you had stayed here. The majority of my former coworkers who were laid off in the last 12 months... —  read more 

STI Results

Supposedly, the bonus payout is being announced today. With the terrible financial results, as reported, this may be the first year that a bonus is NOT paid out.... yes, it's happened before when it used to be Level3. Any bets?

Who else was lied to?

It took me less then a month to realize I was lied to at my interview about what my job would entail. I was too scared of losing my job at the time since I left another company to transfer here (I'm an id–t, I know) so I didn't say anything right... —  read more

Remember when?

Laid Off - No WARNING

I am being laid off tomorrow morning, no warning from anyone. I just moved, signed a new lease and my Boss knew ALL of this. I am devastated and do not know what will happen to me and my family.
