Is it just me, or have there been no layoffs in the last year or so? Or let me rephrase that, no major layoff rounds?

Ill tell you a secret.
F5 management wants you to leave. If they lay you off F5's unemployment insurance goes up. ( this is why layoffs have slowed). F5s new plan is to harass people until they leave for free. if they want to replace you with someone in mexico or india, they just
harass you until you leave on your own. That way F5's unemployment insurance does not go up. Presently F5 wants to get rid of all North American NSEs / ENEs because they cost to much. They will replace them with NSEs / ENEs in mexico and india. Your 10% bonus each quarter which used to be automatic, that will be next thing to be removed.
With this kind of low level management- people leave without layoffs
A current employee advocates for F5? lol
There have not been any significant corp-wide layoffs since late 2019. I think there have been a couple highly targeted (20ppl or less) reductions outside of PD engineering orgs.
Unless I missed something, but I don't see how that would have been possible.
