Clearly there was a fresh round of layoffs today. Is that typically it? Do companies like MS stagger them? Or usually cut one and done.

The blood baths of 1987, 2002, 2009 -2011 were the ones I survived. The one that I got caught up in was in 2016 - and I attribute the blame to those large WMIT teams from BofA/ML who came in, tore up the place, fired people, then went along their merry way to their next stop(s) Rockefeller.
First week of Dec is the usual large RIF
There is a similar small one at the end of Q2 unless of course they want to let go more at the end of other two quarters
Smaller RIF is in one round. This seems to be small. It’s still terrible for those of us that got let go.
Large RIF was a multi day process and it was painful for everyone.
