I was let go with " No Reason" or any explanation as to why? They gave our dept a 2 wk heads up that someone from your group will no longer be here after a certain date. Again management was never touched in the RIF, or whatever they want to call a layoff. There doing this across the board with all depts. Soon there will be no American's to do the work except the contractors from other countries. ( India ) Their new saying should be Engineered in the U.S made in Malaysia and Mexico. Good luck to the remaining Americans ( not the Managers ) left that actually do the work and not stand by the windows all day talking. Great product, was a great Company. Dr. Bose would cringe to see what they have done to his Company.
They are continuing to lay people off across all departments because their sales are tanking. A finance guy says the company will need to continue to downsize over the next 3-5 years. Management is less skilled than they believe.
Let go today from Marcom
Restructuring and downsizing in progress. Letting people go slowly to stay under the radar.
I was let go and with no real good reason except for being the example. Many others were below me in the category that they were using to hold accountability to let people go if they did not hold up to the goal. Those that were below are still there. DM was bad and more than likely wanted me gone so found anyway possible. Not the same Bose as it used to be. Have to ask if some of the things would be this way if Dr. Bose was still around.
