Do you think WD is in its last days?

The "right sizing" has virtually become uncontrollable hemorrhaging. They are so disorganized that I've heard stories of folks getting cut and rehired before the ink dries. Those not getting laid off are just jumping ship while they can still swim... —  read more

Who else is nervous ahead of June?

I managed to relax a bit since the last round of layoffs, but the more June is approaching, the more is my anxiety returning. If this continues for much longer, they won't have to lay me off. I'll leave on my own. This kind of stress is not good... —  read more

You can blame Milligan for not having the right VPs

Milligan is captain of the ship, and he is responsible for whatever happens. But in such a huge company, if his direct reports are feeding him garbage, then he can't make the right decisions. You can blame him for not having the right VPs I guess. I... —  read more
