年轻的生命。。

正是花季阿。。。22岁居然就选择了从28楼跳下来。。误传。陈掉下楼是个accident.他到28楼顶上去休息休息,结果不知怎么的居然就掉下去了!

 
据Microsoft证实:陈锦(音译)和他在的大组均没有人被裁员。
 
Update: 他是个围棋高手,西雅图围棋俱乐部会员,号称业余7段。

以下转自MiniMsft的blog:

I am in Clidell org (Finance) and was told the following late today by my GM…Steveb will send an email out at 0600PST Thursday 22nd announcing cut backs in investments as well as layoffs. Employees will be notified on this day with Friday being last day.

The town hall at 0900 Friday will be after the fact. No effected employees will be eligible for on site internal search which is typically 6 weeks, and I can only think the #’s are too big to be able to pysically house/accomodate. Neither will they be able to apply for any positions posted internally, only those posted externally. In my group the impacted numbers are 9.

No information was forthcoming on severance packages, however in the past the standard package #1 in the US has been capped at 28 weeks with L64 and below getting 1 week for every 6 mos of service and L65 and over getting 2 weeks for every 6 mos service. Word is getting out to Manager so they can schedule meetings with impacted staff…..

微软裁员的谣言看来是真的

看来不是空穴来风,这个谣言传得全世界都在说了,从miniMsft的blog开始,传到wsj, seattletimes, 湾区的媒体,中国的IT媒体,昨天去温哥华散心在温哥华中文电台都听到这个消息,还说是在英国泰晤士报上登的。。
 
昨晚睡觉不踏实,满眼都是layoff。。。。4点多就起床了,又阅读了一下miniMsft上的跟贴(到今早有194个跟帖了)。。说的还有模有样的,连裁员计划都出来了,不过还没有裁哪个部门的,只说大批在MSN和EMEA(Europe, MidEast和Asia)。。回去补觉结果还是梦里全是layoff…
 
哎,是福不是祸,是祸躲不过啊。。虽然我相信我没事,但还是心里惶惶。。
