Right now, it pretty much takes an act of God to find a position inside once you are RA'd.
Those folks who are RA'd are in an accounting column used to report reduced spending.
The new hires are placed in a different accounting column. Anyone who is trying to change divisions will be met with many excuses about not being able to accept certain divisions (or certain bands).
So many lies... Yet, it's not personal.
We are just numbers on an Excel spreadsheet. As you all know, our only priority is executive compensation and the game of smoke and mirrors staged for our audience on the Wall Street.
