    The people they let go were just dead weight, if they only worked 2 hours out of an 8 hour day.

    Should he have done 900 seperate zoom calls? Should he have called you in for an in person meeting and waste your time and travel costs? Is it even possible to have an in person meeting with covid? Ppl are too sensitive nowadays. Get over it.

    How about this no one use better.com and let this CEO be on the receiving end of this meeting with his shareholders.

    how else though? Have each of the 900 employees come to his office one at a time? A letter in the mail? It sucks he had to let them go, but how else do you let 900 people go?

    Whilst it’s highly efficient way to fire multiple people at once - these CEO’s are only firing 900 employees to keep their profit margins, super-high wages and bonuses. As my dad would say “too many chiefs and not enough workers”. It’s not the CEO’s who are the backbone of a company/business, it’s the workers below them who do all the work.

    She should have lowered people's pay instead of firing 900 people

    I can understand someone not being happy with getting laid off, BUT....... if you dont perform its gonna happen and lets look at that severance pay with medical for 3 months, HELLO, you should be happy you got anything, none of that is mandatory so not too shabby as you can start working the next day and still recive three months of help.

    Sucks big time but one positive thing is they got severance pay. I've been laid off from 3 jobs and gotten nothing but security walking you out the door like you stole something. It's Ridiculous. I also hate it when they make it seem like they are going to call you back to work there again when they say "laid off". Never happened for any job I've been laid off from or nobody who worked with me at those jobs either. Terrible. No matter what keep that resume ready.

    Like I always say, you pay for my expertise not my time. Business needs to rid itself of the antiquated idea they own your time.
