Thread regarding NCR Corp. layoffs

Unprepared and anxious

Although I see that many would like to be laid off, in spite of everything, I wouldn't want it to happen to me because I am not prepared. I don't have enough savings, I don't have a plan what to do next, etc.
That’s why I’ve been anxious to the maximum since layoffs about cuts started circulating. I can only assume that in an ironic turn of events, layoffs will be given to those who want to stay, and those who want to go will survive. That is the worst-case scenario.

Please, is there any information on who the target groups might be?

Depends on your age an salary in most cases. Tho whole departments can be let go. They will as I’ve stated before look for older higher paid people to rif. Unfortunately they have to add some young lower paid to add to the mix as to ward off lawsuits. They are just casualties of the real situation. And if your young it will be easier for you to fine a job than the older ones. I’ve been there. If your that worried start looking especially gov state jobs. They have pensions. Your uneducated mail person has a pension! You don’t have one here. Hopefully if you can find one and your picked for a rif you can still get a rif package and be employed somewhere else. With maybe a week of two vacation in between. Best case scenario

I was a part of the BIG wave that happened last year. It was tough, as we all knew it was based on $ and age. There's nothing you can do about it, so no reason to fear. You'll get severance and just have to move on.

Not to worry, though! Your role will quickly be filled with a fresh Ga Tech grad. Just sit back, and enjoy the ride.

Over 45 in age, over 75k in salary I guarantee you are “in the target zone”. Will happen sooner than later. That’s just how the new NCR rolls these days.

As in any layoff, I always say if there isn't a clear direction and plan to cut particular departments... you can look to those who have been on the payroll longer as a good place to start. Layoffs are usually cost-cutting measures. So one of the sorts is always by salary. If you are making a salary in the 75th percentile or above for your title in your city, and folks can be hired in at 40-50th percentile... it pays to be looking.
