Thread regarding Zebra Technologies Corp. layoffs

Another round of deep reductions in force in NA and EMEA

The first round of RIFs weren’t enough. The US Voluntary Retirement Program wasn’t enough. Over last few days deep cuts made, notably hitting NA and EMEA Sales and Services. Current revenue forecast calls for a full $1 B shortfall versus target for FY23. And yet no changes made to senior and executive leadership. Inexplicably the bully Chief Revenue Officer and incompetent smiling Chief HR Officer remain in place. As do their chief lieutenants, at least for now. Cultural values are important to Zebra, but are selectively applied and don’t have to be adhered to by all within executive ranks. An incredible experience and brain drain. Meanwhile mousey new CEO is at a loss. Oh, and disastrous acquisitions of Matrox, Fetch and Reflexis have crippled things further. It’s a full scale crisis and a set of economic conditions company leadership has few answers for other than to right size. And the smiling incompetent Chief HR Officer no doubt is chomping at the bit to share Zebra’s bought and paid for endorsement as a Top 100 Workplace surely reaffirms the corporate strategy path. Sickening the systematic destruction of Zebra. Perhaps a hostile takeover had hope for being the salvation to the product portfolio and the quality people who will still survive.

Zebra is like a crab. Cutting legs makes less supporting of its weight and the crab sinking faster. That is unfortunately the fact.

Sinking ship with way too many business analysts and mid to senior-level management. They have people scattered working remotely all over the US and elsewhere. No more sense of team is left. It's too bad.

This article is so on point- those of us who have been here 10+ years have witnessed the decline in culture & positive treatment of employees
Guess I’m fortunate to be eliminated & not go down with the ship
