They want to get rid off old staff

This round of voluntary early retirement exercise is another laying-off of old guard after last October exercise, after which this CEO took over since 2017. Don’t think this will stop till the last old staff was being chop off. Furthermore, no... —  read more

Rule of 75

Heard more RIF coming. Targeting people with years of service and age equal to 75 or over. So sad. Hire young people with PHD's and pay them more.

Layoff would be a blessing

I'm at the point where I'm hoping and praying to be laid off. Working at Micron has turned from a pleasure years ago into dreading showing up at work each day. I'd quit on my own, but at my age...that's not an easy decision to make. At least being... —  read more

Rank and yank

At least when GE used the rank and yank, you had to be rated low 2 consecutive times to be fired. And you were given a year for improvement. Micron's rank and yank is much more harsh. The 90 day option is bogus. They just want the employee to take... —  read more
