Years ago it was a highly desired place to work. Not anymore. I was a manager at NM many years ago. When a performance issue on my team needed resolution (i.e. firing) I had to jump through hoops. At that time all employee firings needed the company president to approve. We couldn’t let go of employees that ‘earned’ to be let go.
Fast forward to now. The sales area does a reorg at the end of this year, more layoffs, 120 jobs are eliminated. Or are the jobs really eliminated? The sales area immediately posts 100 open jobs that employees need to reapply for. All under the guise of jobs being redefined. Its a pretty clever way of making it really easy to let go of employees, both the good and not so good.
So what is my point... NM needed to do something to deal with job inflation and poor performance, I’ll give them that. However, the approach being used is an embarrassment and it’s heartless.
Speaking of heartless, does anyone left in senior leadership have any heart? I don’t think so.
