Thread regarding CDK Global Inc. layoffs

ELT visits

I heard BK and the ELT are coming to the Portland office tomorrow to meet with employees. Haven't head about this at other locations. Maybe someone should ask him why we have not been backfilling all the jobs lost from the layoff and after. Thankful that the job market is healthy here, many choices for those of us tired of putting up with it.

numbers are not good for the Seattle location. digital business is tanking and there is no reason to keep it open. I know much of flex dev is happening offshore, but Portland still has r&d and support teams. Would make sense to keep that open for the time being.

BK is trying to decide which offices to close - in a higher level meeting with management it was mentioned that Portland and Seattle just did not make financial sense anymore.. if you work in the PNW I’d be quickly looking as the plan is just to let things get worse and worse to avoid paying severance. Litterally said out loud.. as a plan!

"Did he say anything significant and actionable for the Portland workers?" Nope. No speeches. It was very casual. Many people attended this event. must have been the free beer and wine. BK talked to different people including CTAs and others and seemed to mix better than the other ELT members who just stayed round the same ppl. Morale in Portland is still really bad and we keep loosing people must be why they came.

"it was clearly noticeable how 'real' BK is vs the rest of the ELT. He looked and more importantly acted just like one of the rest of us, and didn't act like he's on a high pedestal or looking down on people in the room. A true leader, and someone that deserves respect."

^^^^^^^^

It's good to know that BK is perusing this board. You would think he'd have more pressing things on his mind than coming here!

I'll respect him when he cans the jokers we've all grown to despise. Until then nothing will get better.
