12 people got let go today. From 30 year veterans down to a 9 month newb. Good people just trying to do their job. So you spend a couple of ugly hours hoping your own phone doesn't ring, hoping it will all be over soon. And then you get mad, because 9 out of the 12 cuts came from R&D, and you wonder about all the people the company has hired in Marketing and Finance in the last two years, and wonder why did they not get hit? Bad day at work. But it's over now. So let's drink, and raise a glass to friends who suffer when the company does what companies do.
