Thread regarding Inc. layoffs

This is wrong on so many levels

I was talking to a buddy about Salesforce and the decision to lay people off amid good results and he told me his old company used to do that - cut people in anticipation of a downturn.

But what you think about it, this is kind off forcing a downturn to happen. Laying off some of the best employees is guaranteed to affect operations in the long run, which will result in a downturn, and then the leadership will congratulate themselves on predicting the thing they caused.

The worst part is, they might decide to continue with this strategy. It's a win-win for them, lose-lose for us.

No one overrules Marc Benioff.

Lots of self congratulating going on in the elt!

Pat yourself on the back... we did such a good job leading with empathy for our laid off employees.

Gag me.

No wonder mb didn’t show on the initial all hands. He legitimately wants to do what’s right... And something feels off... like he didn’t want to do this and was probably overruled.
