Like all hurricanes things are calm again at HQ.
It's a miserable feeling to return to the company after being laid off, but I would probably accept the offer.
With the reduction in workforce you have to see the trickle down effect as vendors who supported the cafeteria and janitorial services will also be greatly impacted. These hard workers will have a more challenging time finding new work. So its not... — read more
Of course, I would have preferred to have found a new job before that, rather than find myself in the unenviable situation of looking for new opportunities when I no longer have a job, but I definitely intended to leave Twitter even before the... — read more
All the great engineers won't worry because they can get hundreds of offers from any company in the universe. Unless the "amazing, hardworking and competent" part isn't true... 😬
The layoff.com censors all comments! You will see the narrative they want you to see!!!!
I wish that colleagues who were laid off have already started getting new offers, but unfortunately, I think many of them will have to wait a long time to get a new opportunity. Those with whom I am still in contact are quite desperate on the job... — read more
Impossible at Twitter? Or how about a union? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Take_(2004_film) https://www.ueunion.org/org_steps.html
"In a series of tweets Monday, (EM) went after Apple (AAPL), accused the tech giant, and world's most-valuable company, for what he claimed was Apple's (AAPL) slashing of its advertising on Twitter (TWTR)."
Now I can't wait to leave... The worst thing that could've happened to me is that this was my only option. Fortunately, it's not.
How many managers are there for connected vehicles? It seems every other person seems to showcase and designates himself /herself on linkedin that they are THE cloud connectivity manager for ev"s
Of the 11K or so people laid off I am making a low estimate that they have 100 unique connections on all of their social media. What of they reached out and asked all there contacts to delete their twitter accounts. How would that if any impact... — read more
I’ve seen a lot of technical and ideological takes on Elon Twitter but wanted to share the marketing perspective. For background I’m a director at a medium sized b2b tech company (not in finserv anymore) running a team that deploys about $80M in ad... — read more
Elon has the right to do what he wants as he spent a lot of money to buy Twitter. However, the insensitive manner in which he did it shows a lack of human empathy. The bird is dead the culture is destroyed. The massive cuts are due to the extra 13... — read more
Who is even left to get rid of, other than some desperate people who truly have no choice, that is? All those with options or worth their salt have walked away already. I swear, it'll not take nearly as long as I thought for this whole wobbly house... — read more
I think we can all agree that Twitter is headed for bankruptcy. Now, I know next to nothing about the bankruptcy process, and my online research has only served to increase my confusion. Can someone please clarify to me what this would mean in terms... — read more
Twitter layoffs trigger oversight risk warning from Brussels Staffers in the office were focused on European Union digital policy, working in close proximity to the seat of power of EU’s executive, the European Commission — an entity with an... — read more
Team, In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday. We recognize that this will impact a number of individuals who have made valuable contributions to Twitter... — read more
I personally don't see my future at Twitter anymore. Five years is too long, so I ask where do you see this company in two years? I wouldn't like dark forecasts for this company to come true, but on the other hand, the future does not look very... — read more
Hillicon Valley — Musk ends layoffs, actively recruiting After weeks of massive layoffs at Twitter, Elon Musk is turning the corner and looking to hire again for roles in sales and... — read more
Twitter's new owner Elon Musk told staff in an all-hands meeting that the company does not plan more layoffs and is recruiting for engineering and ad sales roles, according to a tweet by a the Verge reporter.
Quit calling EM an engineer
That is all
After laying off 50 percent of the company’s employees, Elon Musk has turned his attention to Twitter’s contract workers. According to separate reports from Platformer’s Casey Newton and Axios, the social media platform began reducing its contingent... — read more
He is going to staff Twitter with the same caliber of real engineers just like at Tesla and Spacex. There will be potholes along the way but I would not bet against him. He will get rid all of the pseudo engineers who know some programming language... — read more
Leons' intention were never to build this company that forced him to buy it. He would be happy grounding it and washing his hands away from it through bankruptcy.
Twitter Inc's head of French operations, Damien Viel, said he was quitting the social media platform, whose new owner Elon Musk recently fired top executives and enforced steep job cuts at the... — read more
So Musk sent emails to European Twitter employees, firing them. Problem is, you cannot legally fire people that way here, so legally they're still employed and legally owed money for their time. But also, firing people as exists in the USA doesn't... — read more
Serious question from an outside Dev not involved with Twitter. I’m in my mid 20s like many of you. I never used Twitter once in my life. My reasoning. No outreach to potential new customers in the dev space. If you use it enough/ follow... — read more
What percentage of workers left are on H1B visas, compared to before Musk took over? I imagine that those who voluntarily left are primarily those that are not on H1B because of the difficulty and time involved finding another company that will... — read more
Hypothetical here. Let's say someone is willing to buy Twitter but sees the employee salaries needed for San Francisco as too steep. Where would you be willing to live that is a bit less expensive?
It’s not because I want Twitter to fail or think the site is about to collapse. Some think it will, maybe but I dunno. I wasn’t in infra and those people were incredible, the systems are resilient. Remember what happened when the queen died while... — read more
What they call tech is nothing more than simple coding. Coding is not rocket science. Nor is it research. It is just basic logic that someone with a technical mind can do.
New email from Elon Musk to engineers: “please be prepared to do brief code reviews as I’m walking around the office.” That’s it — that’s the whole email.
As an experienced real engineer with advanced math, physics, chemistry, static’s, dynamics, economic analysis, project management , and discipline specific engineering skills, I find it offensive that software developers are being called engineers. ... — read more
