So true... the SVP ranks are jokes. Paid for doing nothing. If Carlos wants to save money, then cut that level loose completely.

I for one am hoping for more layoffs, especially in the SVP ranks! Not a single one is worth what they are being paid. They add no value. Time for them to go.
I have concluded that no one cares about anyone laid off, being laid off, employed, or otherwise. The world has gone 100% selfish knives out.
Holy cow, I hadn't heard about the Pasadena layoffs in July. How many were there? Were those people part of the furloughed employees who were then laid off or were they a separate group?
After todays financial news, you can bet more layoffs will come very very soon.
they were in July 2020
When were the Pasadena layoffs?
there were adp pasadena IT annual layoffs of good folks and what remains is junk.
What a load of manure: "Do your job well, look for any opportunity to advance, don't stay in one job for 10 years like others have mistakenly done and you'll be fine."
That advice won't save you, I can assure you of that. Did that, still got pushed out. Do that and best of luck. The truth is EVERY person, short of a handful of folks at the very top is at risk and that is not changing or going away. Believe your "managers" if you want. I was one and in multiple higher levels management position and I can assure we would have to tell people anything to make them "believe" all was ok and they were fine. I was not, you are not. ADP has turned on people and the knives are out and looking for backs to plunge them in. Enjoy the life at ADP while you can!
You can do your job well and advance, but still get laid off. You don't have to be in the same job for 10 or more years to be laid off. There is equal opportunity for all to be terminated.
Plenty of hardworking people have been laid off at ADP who were team leads, managers, and other "irreplaceable" experts and aficionados. The problem is not hard work or having the proper drive and expertise. The problem is being "overpaid". ADP is trying to save on labor costs by getting rid of employees who are making too much money in their estimation, no matter the value that they bring to the company. So the better the employee, the greater the chance of being rewarded by being compensated well and being promoted, which in turn leads to a layoff. So the harder you work and the further that you get ahead, the bigger the target on your back for termination. Sad, very sad. A self-defeating strategy, but it sure saves ADP on labor costs!
Do your job well, look for any opportunity to advance, don't stay in one job for 10 years like others have mistakenly done and you'll be fine. You'll notice that a lot of people who have gotten laid off are in the same job for over 10 years making way more than they should be making in entry-level jobs. I mean customer service reps making over 80k a year is absurd, it's an entry-level job. It's a matter of time before you put yourself out of a job.
As sure as the sun rises in the east... patience padawan.
