@2vce+1kEVRR1U Yea, they rejected the "How to do Maths" class I tried to teach them years ago when I was there. I couln't take it no matter how much money they paid me. They make money despite themselves and it's embarrasing. I got in trouble once by a Sr Exec for using a word that was too big...it was the word Cost Basis.....and there you have it.
Not too mention how I found out which was they daily feedback loop tattle tail cutlure where an untalented Sr Exec cried and whined like a child to my boss about those too scary big words.
Bonus cuts can happen. If you "need" your bonus to make ends meet, you are living beyond your means.
Here's to hoping that you do get your bonus, but don't forget to get your financial house in order.
It is Ok. It is just a job. Always the same story. After a while, you just get used to the pattern.
Every 8 years there is some kind whining from corp america and layoffs are the results. All kinds of excuses (covid, financial 2008, etc, etc). Trust me, every 8 years. 2028-29 will be another (maybe aliens will land in New York city).
July 18th is the date I was told. Managers were apparently notified on Thursday and had to go through training. The purpose was how to deliver the message. Also, the number affected is supposed to be in the 5k range.
We need a bonus, period.
MSFT messed up headcount and budgeting badly. You dont increase merit budgets right before recession. You dont go ahead and hire 20K+ folks in the year recession starts.
July will be much worse, much much worse.
That's the day of bonus announcements!
What team’s? How many?
