We don’t know who was laid off in the last round of reductions. The way we find out is we try to contact someone by email or IM and find out they are no longer here. It does appear the last layoff included more people than was disclosed. There does not seem to be enough people left to function.

People need to be in a healthier environment. Don’t keep punishing yourself working for this company. This is what they count on. They want to lay you off on their timetable. They will lay you off don’t fool yourself no matter what they tell you they will lay you off. That’s what they do.
As someone who was let go after twenty+ years, update your resume and LinkedIn page. Contact reputable recruiters and let them help you. You will almost certainly end up making more money in a healthier environment. It’s better to look for a job before the next layoff floods the market with competitors.
We wish we had enough guts to just walk off the job. Maybe the coronovirus threat will ease and we can find another job where we are not required to work 80 hours a week to keep our jobs.
If we had jobs to go to right now, we would walk off this job. Laying off then just telling us to work more and longer hours is not the answer.
It's a shame there isn't enough guts for everyone to walk off the job. Give the CEO what he deserves. He wants the company and none of the people. Give him what he wants!
Who said it was good at health solutions. Its awful. No one left to do the work.
This sounds familiar to what happened at Red Hat and IBM. So bad to the point that when even asked at a town hall, the SVP who was on the podium claimed that he had no idea of what layoffs they were talking about. And this was in their own group!
You are right. Maybe the few of us employees left should refuse to work until they bring back some of the key people.
Yes, right after the last layoff prior to some people going to work from home due to the virus threat. If you walked around the Health Solutions Office in Birmingham Alabama there were many empty cubes and offices. There is more empty work space than occupied.
