Thread regarding LogMeIn layoffs

The San Francisco and Jersey City offices are completely closed.

Most employees got laid off now; some were extended until Oct 2020 but will work remote. They will have to work until Oct 2020 to get their severance. Santa Barbara office was also hit hard, and engineers who work on LastPass in Boston were laid off too. Work is being moved to Budapest and Bangalore and Germany. Senior management apparently hates to pay for US talent, considers them an expensive commodity that must be eliminated.

They seem to think all innovation comes from Product & CX people - software engineers just implement designs and fix bugs. All the smart, founder types in the US have left the company. Last one out the door please turn off the lights.
