There does not seem to be any information about the RIF last Friday.
Where did the cuts occur? (divisions, groups, locations, managers or low-level emps only)
There is no doubt that this company will cut anyone regardless of the work they do (good or bad)
but from what I have not heard and not seen posted here are details which brings into question whether there was a 5% cut which is large enough that you would just hear about it without having to seek it out on the internet,
