The ranking system is about to drive another wave of resignations. People who have been working their as--s off and have always been ranked well will be told they aren’t performing. They will then question everything and start applying for jobs... — read more
I'll start leaning the other way on a dime. If I actually see the dime. Filling in these posts when I could be working on my novel. No way.
First out - I am no movie geek, no cinephile as they say. I'm more of a first-season only sitcom or nugent deerhunter type. But - on to the review of this Tarantino/Herzog collaboration. Apparently the first. And I'd recommend as the... — read more
Heard today that while education reimbursement was cut for the masses they are still paying it for hi-POS. Any truth to this?
For those who haven’t quit and are having more and more work to do I see a rapidly accelerating trend of burnout and disengagement. Sad really. The company is history.
Just got told I will getting let go and getting offered the opportunity to rebadge as a contractor. This comes right after I let my peers know I was pregnant.
Was in a meeting today and called out management for their lack of caring and cr---y policies. They all got quiet and sad. Was obvious even they could no longer bring themselves to defend this sh-t show. EM is doomed.

Don’t forget to post on yammer how great it is to be back to campus , pro points for masked selfies 😂 Extra pro points for managers liking your post!
It's the answer, my friend. The answer is blowing in the lubes.
I understand that folks near retirement are safe, but what about those of us under 60? Loosing a quarter of my pension by being forced to retire before my kids are out of college has me worried.
If engine 1 wants to win the fight they just need to commit to changing the archaic ranking system. All employees below executive level would then vote for their white card.
Obviously, things are bleak for contractors (if any remain at this point), but has anyone heard anything about full time employees being furloughed/laid off/forced to retire early?
