It was announced that Ellie Mae is being acquired by Thoma Bravo.... Now it's clear they butchered so many jobs so they could meet the financial requirements for the sale. Several people who were cut were on medical leave and I'm sure the company will say that has nothing to do with why they were let go....really?? And with the company going private under the terms of the sale, there is less incentive to remain since RSUs and ESPP will no longer be offered.
And yes, the area hardest hit by these cuts was SUPPORT! Our customers deserve so much more and it has become an embarrassment to be associated with this organization. There are a lot of great people still remaining but who knows for how long. Either Thoma Bravo will do their normal culling or people will get sick of it and just quit.
I wonder how Sig and Limin are feeling about their baby right about now....
Couldn't agree more with you, @X1LgYYk-Bjjb.
