Last year almost the entire automotive team (including me) were let go. People with years of experience from 1 year to almost 30 years. Sales in automotive were almost zero in 2019. Existing customers are not renewing. It's a real mess. They were on top for so long, and now they have no idea how to move forward. They couldn't keep up with new technology and open source (R and Python) is just k–ling them. Very sad to see, but I'm so glad to be out of there.
I HEARD THEY JUST LET A TEAM OF PEOPLE, MANAGEMENT INCLUDED, FROM THE GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY PRACTICE.
It's not only the dead weight. It's the industry disruption + inept executives and managers. The inept execs could get away with it more when growth masked all the problems. The folks who grew up in candyland, joining right out of NC State, never had a real job or managed real business challenges, and never shipped any useful and usable product, simply don't have the skills to help the company survive the innovator's dilemma. A sweeping out may help, but unfortunately it won't be enough.
2000+ people have disappeared off the employee phone list since 9/2018. I know, I was one of them and I still have friends sending me the list monthly.
Schabenbuggered, indeed - he's not just ignorant of software at any level, he's a menace. And Goodnight is not just letting it happen, he's encouraging it (when he's not sleeping in meetings).
It started before 2018. I was "targeted" in 2017.
The education group this commenter is referring to is a group of ppl who worked on Curriculum Pathways, which is not a revenue-generating part of the company. All indications are that those job eliminations were handled poorly, and it took this long for a single person to come here and acknowledge it.
Since then others have been let go in pockets. some senior executives, individual contributors. The social media team is down to a single person, but they mostly stunk anyway.
There’s runors now of each C-level executive being asked to cut 10% from their part of the org, rumors that a chunk of the building receptionist staff are next to go.
Leadership have clammed up. Barely a word said by anyone about any of these job eliminations. climate is bad, everyone is wondering if they or their group is next. long overdue cuts but not targeting those who really need to be swept out, the ones who have collected huge paychecks for years and in some cases decades but who do nothing and produce nothing. There are a LOT of these legacy people in every department and every level and they are k–ling SAS from the inside like a cancer. hope they are found so that the company can survive and the employees who actually do work aren’t left with no jobs.
Entire education group was laid off over a month ago. Many employees with 15+ yrs experience.
it started in 2018 and it continues, people are laying low as whole groups are cut. there is a lot of dead weight though, and performance management is a joke.
What is ENMAN?
