So, it’s the end of year and doesn’t seem we have hit the 1400 number for employees being laid off this year? Will they actually do it right before or after Christmas ? Should we be concerned ?

Unqualified and arrogant management

If anyone wants to get the idea of how a lot of hard work goes to waste due to the incompetence of the management, I suggest they look into the practices of Metlife’s management. A lot of ignorance mixed with a whole lot of hubris is a powerfully... —  read more

More info on possible layoffs

Could be sooner than September/October, but I've seen October layoffs at other places. I think management favors Q4 because it only affects the last quarter of the year and once the year is over they don't have to talk about it much. Plus, it can... —  read more
