Heard revenue was down?
appears management has decided to do a round of layoffs
Employees don't leave companies, employees mostly leave bad bosses. Almost all of my colleagues who left and whom any good company would try to retain, left precisely because of the manager. Why do all the good managers leave here quickly, while... — read more

Is the bonus enough to make up for no merit increases or does it just add insult to injury?
It’s never good when Elliott Management is involved. History has shown that when they are involved, restructuring ALWAYS occurs followed with sizable layoffs. I hope I am wrong, but history doesn’t... — read more
