The attrition that is causing the rest of us to get burnt out because we have too much work to do for one person? I would like to know since I'm not noticing any moves made in that direction. Do they think things can go on like this forever? There'll come a time when there'll be nobody left to do the work at the pace this has been going.

You call it attrition, but those leaving call it LIVING. D-mbest thing to do is stay there and waste your life.
It comes and goes in waves, in all departments. Honestly, i was surprised at the recent hiring, but there were a lot of new heads onboard this month in all areas. I don't understand why given the global landscape, but there was.
The only thing i can figure is that Lenovo expects growth and demand. But I've also been around long enough to know that as quickly as they hire, they can fire. It comes and goes in waves.
As for workload, I hope it gets better for you. If you have more bad days than good, don't be afraid to ask for a change of station. If that isn't possible, then leaving is always an option. Just remember: wherever you go, there you are, so it's a sure fire way to find out if you left because of the job, or because of you.
400 more employees in NA now that pre-pandemic, all areas of the business grew during this time.
People leave for all sorts of reasons, mostly a better salary elsewhere.
There were no layoffs last week by the way.
This is nothing new; that was the norm when I was there. If you couldn't handle it and were starting to burn out, you were publicly called out and made fun of. Don't expect to be paid more for doing twice or 3x the work, either; when it comes time for evaluations, if you're lucky, you'll get paid with verbal praise that won't go beyond the meeting between you and your manager.
