Thread regarding Fidelity Investments layoffs

What should I tell them?

I’m a current employee at Fidelity and trying to get a family member and also a good friend to apply to Fidelity...

They would be a perfect match for the company and they don’t want to because of the ugly perception of how Fidelity has mistreated its current employees and looks like they baited and used them into a trap that devastates their personal and professional life with a punishment that far exceeds the wrong-doing.

I literally can’t get any of my job seeking friends to apply after this.

It blows their mind a company would fire someone over a benefit, literally a corporate perk, something meant to retain employees.

So confused what should I tell them?

Perfect match as in they are only out for themselves and sling a bunch of useless jargon?

Let's give up on saying people got what they deserved. People make mistakes whether they were unscrupulous or not. I am thinking the majority of the people that got fired learned a very hard lesson and should not be beat down over it. I'm pretty sure all the people that talk so harsh aren't saints either.

Not all the people fired were dishonest or unethical. I beg your pardon...Fido in some cases should be ashamed of themselves for how they handled the situation.

Don't do anything dishonest or unethical and you will be fine. Those who abused the computer and fitness reimbursement programs got what they deserved. Those employees did wrong and have the nerve to try to place the blame on anyone but themselves.
