Is anybody else thoroughly annoyed that in the same year we've had several layoff rounds (not large, but still) and a hiring freeze now we're doing a major hiring push? There are hundreds of open positions currently. My thinking and worry are that the more we hire, the bigger the chance of layoffs in the near future when the recession hits.

The open positions allow Salesforce to check that box on LCA applications that they have tried to hire an American worker before bring in more H1B. It's a well known tactic that large H1B employers use to abuse the system
Salesforce famously borrows its corporate culture from the Hawaiian tradition of the "Ohana," which according to custom refers to an extended family not necessarily connected by blood, but by shared experience and community. A Salesforce representative declined to comment on the record whether the company still considers contractors part of its "Ohana."
I noticed some inactive user accounts just last week but didn't realise they were probably part of a larger layoff. This happens so often now at SF. Its never about making money - its about making more money.
Close to 100 contractors laid off in one day with same day notice.
Not even a heads-up.
AFTER the company continued to exceed goals.
Ohana my a-s.
Which region are these open positions in?
It has been going on for years!
Hiring in lower cost countries then layoffs in higher cost countries. Nothing new for SF.
