Thread regarding Juniper Networks Inc. layoffs

Layoffs will be rolling throughout the month of January on Tuesdays until the earnings call

According to some on this site, the layoffs will be next week.

But if experience tells me anything, they'll be rolling throughout the month of January on Tuesdays until the earnings call.

Experience also tells me Product Management and Contrail will be the least scathed, as they seem to have a halo of protection around them since forever.

Juniper has constant layoffs. Some isolated and intermittent incidents are not layoffs and just firings, because they don't offer any separation or severance packages. These are long drawn out fiascos that are orchestrated by HR with bogus PIPs.

However, when layoffs do occurr, separation packages are offered to show investors and wall street that "cost cutting" is going on and people are been treated well. This usually happens when the earnings are bad, as it helps to balance out the bad news with good news. I don't have to tell you, but its all a game so the id--ts at the top can continue to stay in power, despite all their mistakes. This is common everywhere and not new to juniper. Juniper has got away with this practice for a long time and the leadership team has been lucky, but their luck is about to run out, because wall street is realizing they have been duped by Juniper far too long. Many analysts have caught up with the poor performance of the leadership team and they are recommending to dump JNPR.

For past 3 layoff cycles, all notifications happened (at least in US) on 1 day, not so much rolling basis. Agree with @X4FhoXU-2lvn . People get told on Wed, paid through Friday, bye. Otherwise too difficult for HR who is mostly outsourced at this point to coordinate and manage the closeout process. Be kind to your colleagues this week - you don't always find out right away who/what was impacted.

Rip off that band-aid. One and done. Layoff are tough on people but the truth is that there is a lot of "fat" an Juniper, at least in the areas that I can see. It's gotten a lot better after the last rounds of layoffs. A few years ago I saw many people who literally sit around all day surfing the net with no supervision. There's a person, since RIF'ed, who hadn't produced anything for 1.5 years. Part of the problem is the negligent management. Fortunately some of the useless management was pushed out in the previous layoffs. My group has gotten a lot leaner but there's a few people here and there that could probably be shown the door and productivity would improve. At least in the group that I'm in the previous rounds of layoffs have targeted the right people. However, I'm on the technical side where it's much easier for everyone to see who isn't pulling their weight. I can imagine in some other departments it's much easier for incompetent employees to hide.

All layoffs happening on one day sounds more realistic and inline with how Juniper did layoffs in the past. No use (and bad for already low morale) to delay the bad news.
