Thread regarding Riverbed Technology Inc. layoffs

This is just a shadow of the company it used to be

I have been on the verge of leaving for a long time, but with the way things are run lately I think I made my decision. With the current managerial structure that , to put it mildly , uninterested in the work processes and how things are handled it has become impossible to get any task done.
We always had our shares of problems but work was always taken seriously. Now, it doesn’t seem to be the case. I know we never had a great managerial structure, but when have they become so frivolous?

Lifers are a double edged sword, a resource that can be used well or poorly. Effective management can use their experience and pride to do great things. Ineffectual management encourages them to dig in, play politics, and adopt a don’t rock the boat mentality that prevents progress. Guess which one we have.

I agree with both comments because I work with lifelong deadweight individuals who fakes their way through the job by leeching off their competent teammates.

For the ‘lifer’ comment. If ‘lifers’ are seasoned engineers that take pride in the products they have built and stay with the company because of loyalty to their team and sense of purpose, yeah I guess there a few. Good for them, they don’t make decisions that dictate company direction, so they are not the problem. The problem is the cabal of top level management, an obviously non-diverse bunch of recycled execs who are milking the company, hiring inexperienced and/or ineffective subordinates talking a lot and changing nothing. The company is slowly sinking and I seriously doubt there is much that can be done to stop it.
