Performance or Popularity ?

I'm all for a mini and small mid size 30 K people company as like how we used to be before 10 years. The addition of 60 K people in this last one decade we've not achieved anything excellent product wise.

ideally everyone was exepecting the reason behind the layoffs to be, layoffs. That's not the case.
Case No. 1
employee is a senior manager in one of the smallest divisions of 3 businesses in hyderabad.
This manager X did not helped his manager Y to do all the honky ponky way of hiring and letting the Y manager's relatives to be hired. Mr.Y kept an eye over X continuosly and took his head when this god sent opportunity by our Big Ball(mer) boy came.

Case No.2
Second employee mid level manager. raises concerns, openly talks about poor practices, protests manager screw ups openly and brings it to timely notices of HR. Kick him off, threat message sent from higher ups utiling this opportunity.
MANAGER RELATION SCREW UPS are the only commanlity between all the laid off folks.

Now for time being, I'll stop with this 2 examples.
Atleast 15/60 of those guys( predominantly IT/SMSG/MGSI), I've worked with them directly or indirectly. So pathetic to see the non-performers(bottom 'underperformed') of the company are still get to stay and those 'Exceeded', 'Achieved' rated guys are kicked out.

I'm not going to stay with this company anymore, I'm more than willing to quit this 'filthy' practices, completely corrupt company any time if i can get another opportunity which doesn't need to pay me this much money, atleast work should be good and no politics. Anyone has such offers drop me a mail @ . will collate my resume and my likeminded friends resumes as well to the offered company.
i think 6-7 year with this company is more than enough to see through the whole cycle...
I'm also seriously searching monster, naukri.
Problem I face is, despite my 10+ year experience and 6-7 years in MS, outside market is not preferring MS folks as they're not finding us competent enough, "more talking, less work, just bluffers,highly priced". This is one of my recruiter friend's comment, so guys instead waiting for the day the next worst axe will come to your neck( July'23-Q4 and FY results), prepare yourself now. I know everyone of us got here by intelligence and 6-7 rounds of interviewing, so with little bit of planning and hard work we can land into an right opportunity without facing the social stigma.

Lets abandon this crappy place together and search for some nicer one...

Bring your child to work

I've seen how this program is executed before, not certainly this way, dirty cheap and very bad timing.
First of all when all the employees morale are down, why we're attempting at such very employee program in a cheap manner ? Suspend all such nonsenses, crap and bull shits for some more time...
I myself did not attempt to bring my kid to office that day, what's there to show in this office anymore ?
My frustrated colleagues, my military setup work offices (which is not allowing my old colleagues, but allowing my kids, totally idotic).
Please treat my impacted colleagues well until they're legally separating, if they revolt Indian government intervention satyam saga may repeat here and you guys may need to spend more to the politicians. Since you folks have not done a religious job of selecting people by merit for this first round of layoffs, please do not treat them badly.
Atleast in next rounds, cut only the fat Mr.Fatty Ballmer Boy, not the true veterans loyalists of the land. Now the useless freshers joined in IDC this month, APEX in MSIT dont have any confidence at all about the company's future and full time spending in monster and naukri. Try to see how much our internal traffic has grown in Monster, Naukri.
Do you think employees will still believe your story that the company takes care of them and their family ? what a idiotic attempt...
Do not even attempt telling all these stories, try to fix the real problems.
Get rid of crap mid and top management first. Do a sincere exercise through 3rd party about what's being really managed by the so called mid and top management , dont allow our HRBP since they're equally crap than anyone else in the company.
