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…..
