Did AS get his severence rescinded?

Considering he sent his 2nd company in a row to ch 11 AND admitted he wasn’t keeping up with technology for the past number of years there’s NO way he should receive millions of dollars

Who else is quitting if they're not laid off?

Severance is the only thing still keeping me here. If layoffs are done and I'm still here, I have no intention of sticking around. Job market is too good right now to have to suffer through stress caused by the decisions made by our inept management... —  read more

So they were grooming him for the past month, according to Stern's email. Wow, they just keep us in the dark up to the last possible minute. I don't believe anything that comes out of corps mouth, nothing!
