Expect a lot of "we need to make tough choices" in the company all-hands today. Any criticism of political narratives adopted by senior leadership will put a black mark on your profile (even if you ask anonymously on Zoom, it's not anonymous to the company). Any questions regarding the Chinese venture will also not be appreciated.
This is a pre-cursor for layoffs and pushing more engineering work out east and replacing many engineers with graduates, same as 2 years ago.
The company is no longer making decisions internally, the senior executives are all part of a wider cabal of Silicon Valley tech moguls trying to leverage their power at the cost of careers and even revenue. Some big names hold sway over many smaller companies and expect them to fall in line. Especially since its a US election year.
Sadly Mr Segars has bowed to this nonsense.
