We’re expected to do more with less
All the time we are expected to do more with fewer resources. Whether people quit or are laid off, one thing remains the same. The rest of us will be expected to pick up their work. Heavens forbid we backfill a position or two. I wish my manager... — read more

I was browsing this website and there doesn't seem to be quite a lot of info regarding layoffs in the UK. If there are any news, I appreciate if they can be posted in the replies.
Has there been any update, Till when are other announcements due ?

Amazon rescinded my offer
I'm devastated. I thought I'd be okay since I had been working on leaving for months and landed an amazing offer just to have it retracted. I haven't been in the job market for a while, is this something that happens often? I don't know if I can take... — read more
Whipping harder on the remaining staff
Dealing with management here is essentially the most difficult part of my job. Why do they think that something will be achieved by whipping harder on the remaining staff? The only thing that can come out of it is a greater attrition. Though... — read more

This company needs a radical change
I have seen many, many rounds of layoffs at SAP and nothing has changed. There will always a new batch of blue kool-aid drinking sheeps joining. They heard that it is very easy to slack off at SAP, get free food and take naps anytime in one of the... — read more
I was gutted when I found out. I’ve been the biggest promoter of SAP over the years. After almost 20 years for them to do this when let’s get real. The other tech layoffs gave them an out. I truly believe if there were no other big companies doing... — read more
Has there been any layoffs in operations teams. Very strange lots of senior managers moved roles or disappeared in January. Must of been tipped off. What is happening to all the LACE and sales support teams

SAP Outside Directors: Do your Job
This layoff process should be reviewed by our outside directors. None of our board member can be proud of how this was handled. If they are, their contracts should not be renewed or better yet - fired.
Leaving feeling bitter
I am not impacted, but I sympathize with everyone who is and I wish you luck to get new, better opportunities. I started looking for a new job myself, because I am more than disappointed with the way the layoffs were managed here. The story I... — read more

This is wide-spread
This layoff is a bit different if compared to the others we had before - this one sees to be more wide-spead, it's not targeting specific pockets or groups. I may be wrong but this one feels different. It'll be interesting to see what kind of impact... — read more
