Lots of good people no longer with the company. Company line is that this is not a cost-cutting measure. Almost every department over on Core/SIS/Professional Services had people cut, some who were fairly new to the company and others that had been with the company for more than a decade. Lots of nervousness with those left behind, as few believe this is the end of the "not cost cutting measures".

I was one of them. And I wasn't in sales or trade. 9 of 24 laid off with rumors of more to come. I saw several people leaving with their stuff but I am not sure of the impact in other departments.
