The reason NetApp, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc. are saying "no layoff's for 90 days" is because there were MAJOR tax incentives for employers to guarantee to the government that they would not make cuts (not fake news, Google it, it's in the bill) when everyone thought this would be a short-term crisis. Sure, it made sense because if the country's top employers started making cuts not only could the EDC not handle the call volumes but it would cause even more fear for the economy. Contract workers are already being let go at NetApp but it's been kept very quiet (they don't fall under the 90-day plan) So come July once the incentive guidelines have been met, there will be huge cuts (500+ I'd bet) So better start looking.

This troll knows full well that all of the large companies regularly churn 5-10% of their workforce every year. When there's a layoff, and there will be even without Covid, the numbers will likely be 500-1000 annually anyway. Not good if you are one of them but this is what happens with every major tech company. In contrast, look at a company like Nutanix that is just running itself into the ground with debt and using Covid as a convenient excuse to cut salary (furloughs) while keeping employees. They could never do that if the economy was well because those employees would just leave.
It would be a miracle if a company didn't layoff after an event such as this. Kudos to those who kept employees onboard even if its just a few months.
More trolling. Just ignore this clown who clearly has nothing better to do than spending time $hitposting.
Are you shame to put NotAPP alone with Google, Facebook, Microsoft???
Oh my god, if you hate working at NetApp then please just leave, I think everyone will agree with me that we don‘t want this kind of employee’s. Normally I would say go find work at Pure, Dell but even them I don‘t wish an employee like you.
You id–t. There were NO tax incentives for netapp to guarantee no layoffs. Only those companies taking the government bailout or PPPs.
