Thread regarding Fidelity Investments layoffs

People need to learn new skills

As somebody said in another thread, too many people at Fidelity who are complaining about layoffs are those who have not even tried to keep up with the changing times and now their pay does not match their skill set.

If your skills do not match what the company needs, you will be laid off. There is nothing personal there, that's just common sense. You either adapt or be ready to walk. As simple as that.

It’s: their skill set does not match their pay. Bullying is a part of getting a better job. No skills required, just obedience. Skills are for volunteers.

Correction: If you actually do work for Fidelity, and you are not AJ or any other member of the Johnson clan, or aren’t one of AJs higher up minions, then please, do keep posting those nuggets of extremely naive, platitudinous, career coaching “wisdom” from your lofty INSULATED golden perch. Tick tock.

If you are actually over 50 with 20 years, you are incredibly insulated from reality.

Preach Post ID: @125GmH0Q-5afx. Exactly. That’s the only thing that gives me any solace, that these naive eejits (more commonly known as, “f- - -ing shills” who post that sh** here) will face the blatant ageism for themselves and be out on their tender arses soon enough. I’ll have my popcorn ready.

But please, do keep posting those nuggets of naive, platitudinous, career coaching “wisdom” from your lofty young perch. I’m sure big Green will one day show u how much they truly appreciate it. (🤮)

In some cases, your post may have some truth. But many of us have created the new technologies, systems, tools, and business models you use. We have created new and revolutionary ways of working. Fidelity presented challenges to us and we met them. We moved mountains for them. And because you are younger and they can pay you less, we get tossed like trash.
We have not only upskilled, we created the skill. And at Fidelity they are all about diversity, unless you are over 40. Fidelity is leading the way in ageism. They are unashamed. Just remember this..your time will come sooner than you think. The days are long, but the years are short.
