Thread regarding NetApp layoffs

When is a layoff a layoff?

GK stated that there will be no layoffs in the very short term. Despite that many employees have been told they need to find other roles. In effect this is the same as announcing a layoff and giving the employee a grace period to find a new position except in reverse.

In the end it's the same. The company has always paid more attention to its image than its bottom line.

Nutanix guy here. This virus is affecting a lot of people in the entire industry. We're not enemies, we're all folks working in the same industry - just different employers on our W-2's. Hope you all at NetApp weather the storm OK.

Apparently people on the outside know more about NetApp than the insiders.

Pure trolls: Keep trying. No source whatsoever on PS business lies.

But keep trying. If you can't sell, keep $hitposting.

No one was thrown to the wind, those who were impacted were moved at same level, same pay into groups that needed headcount and were growing. It's a win-win.

I agree with the last statement in that they are still trying to bring in entry level people at low cost and remove people that have more experience and higher salary. I'm not sure its working.

The question is whether the people affected by the "re-org" are being offered positions on other teams or if they are being thrown to wind to try to find something on their own. When I got "impacted" a few years ago, I was qualified for a number of positions and applied for them. I got called back on one and they were willing to bring me back with at 10% pay cut.

No matter how you word it, that was a layoff.

At that time, the company was reducing cost and would rather hire a newbie with no skills and a much lower salary than someone who could hit the ground running.

Either way I'm happier now working for a competitor. Better pay and benefits without having to look over my shoulder to see if someone is getting ready to stab me in the back.

Wow, the trolls just can't stay away. First, the meetings were last week (not today) and some departments are building up and needed resources. Other departments were reduced. It's a rebalancing of human resources. The reorg also accounted for net new head count for some teams.

One man's reorg is another man's layoff...
