People always target their sarcastic remarks towards upper level management unfairly. In most cases, not all those people are go getters. The people that make these companies great. They aren’t the ones sitting in the same job for 20 sum years collecting paychecks for just showing up. Get rid 2 of those and you have the salary of a manager or up. The dead weight scientifically lingers at the bottom. They keep their jobs by just getting by.

I heard some good friend back east say as many as 20 were let go in one area. Most of them good steady workers. Heard they all got packages not that it will help them come 6 months from now.

There were people let go that had no " performance chalenges" what so ever. One of the most prolific testers in QA, prolific and acurate, been here many , many years. Also another high quality tester , I also worked with directly for many , many years. Also, judging by your snide remarks I see youare flying your ducebag flag high and proud.

If you have some concerns on who was recently let go I suggest you schedule a meeting with human resources and these individuals managers so you can get to the bottom of what happened here. I am sure they will be thrilled to hear you are concerned and were not aware of individuals Performance challenges.

27 years exp? I assume you are NW.

If so, all those years as VP/EVP/C-suite across the various companies should be plenty for you to happily sail off into the retirement sunset, as long as you weren't totally irresponsible with your finances. I surmise you didn't even like the job all that much, due to the lack of any interaction or communication with most of the guys under you in the org-tree. Wish you the best.

Someone has to make up for Cottle's parachute which is coming next year. 65% market cap gone under his guidance and the worst public speaking CEO... the others on stage at the round table put him to shame.
