The survivor

October 9th, 2009 8:10 pm

We knew this was coming since at least June.  Our department just executed a huge restructuring.  Two of my cubicle neighbors were walked out.  That’s some scary thought.

The team I belong to had 9 people at the beginning of the year.  I’m the programmer “H”.


By spring of this year, Project Lead “B” and programmer “E” retired, and analyst “D” and programmer “I” were laid off.


Today, they laid off programmer “C” and programmer “G”.

Within 10 months period, we went from 9 person team down to 3 person team.  66% job cut—that’s scary.  But at the end of the day, I was one of the survivors.
