It has been widely communicated within NI this week, that a France-based R&D site will entirely close this year. I’m curious whether we’ll witness the first strike at NI!

The number of job openings on the website were over 400 a few weeks ago and now sitting at around 230. When will the other jobs be unfrozen?

I haven't heard of anybody outside of the U.S. being impacted despite the last layoffs round being announced as being global. Am I wrong? If I'm not, then it just feels like we are always the ones who get the short end of the stick every time when it... — read more

Someone's made a good observation that marketing people are not clear on who our target customers are. You don’t need to be a great marketing expert to see that they are doing things wrong. Worst of all, they learn nothing from their mistakes. Maybe... — read more
Top talent is not immune to layoffs. I was a top performer and had the #’s to back it up. I was paid more and older than the average, plus my specific focus area and position was outsourced. So, take your pick of any three. In the end, it’s a... — read more
