Writers were let go in Office and Dynamics. Aged 45+. Those jobs are moving to India. Be careful, everyone. If you're at Microsoft and part of the older crowd, start making plans now, especially if you've had anything at all negative in recent reviews (even if it's unfair or untrue). No one's talking because they don't want to risk their severance package, but there is definitely a trend at Microsoft to lay off older folks, and it starts with a couple of negative things in a review.

If you think stack ranking is dead, think again. You get closer to the bottom the older you get.
