At our department meeting co-workers finally looked, felt and spoke of the reality of layoffs etc. over the next weeks, months, years. They say there are no dumb questions but I think I heard one. " will the company give us names and numbers of former bosses to use as references" CLUELESS - due to legalities all the company will do is say you worked for them from this date to that date and you were laid off not fired. Out placement consultants will be brought in .... "write a resume, apply for lots of jobs, if you love the company that just laid you off please don't file for UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS that costs them and affects executive bonuses next year."

Concerning IT Intelligent questions, I hope it was "we're NOT going with Business Objects / Business Intelligence again are we"? or
"When we do combine systems we're NOT going to call it STREAMLINE III"?
Don't file for unemployment ? Sounds about right.
Must have been the PSCM department meeting. Only intelligent questions were asked in the IT meeting.
