What companies are hiring?
You are definitely one of the lucky ones!
I was in the really lucky group that started this nonsense LAST April... same experience .. they were so dumb how they went about it... I could tell for weeks beforehand by the way just about anyone making really good money was sent packing, and by the cowardly “executive” speak. So...I was pretty much already halfway through the hiring process for a new job. On the day I will call my lottery winning, I parked in the visitors lot, waited for the blah blah scripted BS of “why”, and then pretended I cared that this “wonderful” company was letting me go. I started my new job two weeks later , and enjoyed my 8 months severance and benefits continuation as my parting gift. Good riddance and thank you for a much better deal !!!!!
Where at? Are they hiring? Can you put in a good word for me?
Nodody still at the company would publicly admit they were unhappy. They are happy about the reduced bonus. They are happy with cut benefits. They are happy with no merit increase this year. They are happy with the constant threat of job loss. You couldn’t find a group of people pretending to be more happy.
