After 20 years with the Company, I was asked to leave. Reason given: "we are eliminating your position(in ITS), going in a different direction". Thats it. Over in 1/2 hour. Escorted out the door by a faceless, emotionless human resource robot. Not even given time to pack my belongings.
I was just given a 5% pay increase December 24th, have always been rated 3 or 4.
This is a good company? HA!
Sounds like sour grapes I know, but unless you work(ed) here, you know morale is low and the direction company is headed is south.
You watch how Benmo and Lisa line their pockets and then leave.
Get Met. It Pays???????
"The Pompous Pooch!" I kinda like that!!
And to all you Latin Language Lizards (please don't tell that guy that Latin is a dead language. I'm sure it makes a great pickup line for him - with the over 2000 year-old crowd) let me say, "Venat et Playat con tu piccolus penus."
Ah, now THAT felt better. Isn't amazing how many screwballs you can lure out of the funnyfarm by making an absurd and tongue-in-cheek comment. Wouldn't give these guys two hours in New York.
Snoopy is a hero. His relentless courage in pursuit of the Red Baron is very remarkable and inspiring. He also shows other great charactor traits such as loyalty, humor, and a love for music. Flea bitten he was not.
We see this at UnumProvident, as well as other companies that are nothing but whores, just like Enroe. It is a poison that has to be stopped. Bush should deal with American headaches called corporate terrorism. There are so many good companies, bud management in a few cause the marks of disgruntlement.
I'm not sure what the age discrimination law says exactly; however, if you're 44 and if you were the only one in your area that was let go, then you might want to vconsult with a lawyer as well as a financial advisor. I heard a radio ad recently for The Employment Law Group at 1-877-7EMPLOY. Might be worth giving them a call. let us know how you make out.
Best of luck to you.
Oh, and alpal, "Hand up Lisa's Skirt"? Yuck!
