Layoffs coming ...

Postby Slade » Mon Aug 22, 2016 11:02 pm

Other groups at the company where I work have been having layoffs. My group hasn't and we've been told that the all clear has not been sounded for us yet.

There are more than a few slackers in our group. People who never deliver on time and who always seem to be calling in sick. Fortunately for me I get great reviews, so I'm not worried. But the slackers are starting to sweat bullets. And to top it off, our manager was in meetings all day, so the hammer is about to drop.

Start preparing to get bad news mentally, even if you think it couldn't happen to you.

Always keep low expectations and plan for the worst to avoid being disappointed.

It's not all ducky in the union ranks either. Number one guy on our seniority roster will have his job abolished in a few days. He's retiring rather than create a mess for himself and the rest of us.

New head manager is shitting over everyone and morale is the lowest I've seen it in 25 years.

I understand the economy is in the shitter and the company is chopping deadwood, but this guy isn't exactly deadwood. Oh well, I guess we'll continue to muddle along.
