I got a phone call–a text message actually–at 7 am this morning from a friend working at Yahoo! who wanted to know what I knew about negotiating severance packages.
Called him and found out today was the layoff day at Big Purple.
Do you know I didn’t bother to tip off anyone? I mean, this sad exercise has happened so many times before, where is the news, really?
Ans you know what? My friend, who is dispised by his (much older) manager–didn’t lose his job. Yea! (I guess)
