Boss's boss's boss calls a meeting for tomorrow...

Post by Joe Shlabotnik »

...to talk about "changes".

Definite rant. You know this never ends well.

If I wake up to an email from HR, I think I'll know where it's headed.

No email from HR, so I've got that going for me.

Keep us posted. They're probably just upgrading the k-cups in the break room to a Nespresso (fingers crossed).

Nothing. Bullet dodged. These managers need to be sensitive to how this crap is perceived.

Or maybe I'm so old and remember attending three of these sessions where I was liquidated (and a fourth instance where I was met as soon as I got to my desk and escorted right back out of the building) that others don't share that particular muscle memory.

I've been in IT since 1998. I have been throw several downturns in the market as well. I would have worried just the same as you.
