It has become the monthly layoffs - insane
How long until they share the official count this time?
Yes. There were many let go today. The sad part is that the steering committee in charge of making these decisions are all 10+yr tenure at the company and really close friends to the chief commercial officer. As they tried to expand for growth and brought on new talented leaders to do that, unfortunately this legacy team thought about their legacy and not embracing change which is one of illumina’ core values. Mark my prediction... less than 1yr from now the CCO will be gone as they will not hit their numbers as they continue to do things the same way but are trying to get a different result. Ahhh... definition of insanity, right? I feel bad for all those that left secure positions to come here to realize the commercial team is dysfunctional. They are the only function in Illumina that is not centralized which explains why they have so much turn over year after year.
