    Thanks for making my working life a living hell. You've laid me off twice and I was stupid enough to come back once again. You don't give a shit about any of your employees. I regret ever working for you.

    Any chance that you are a 40+ year old straight white male? Just curious.

    This seems vague. Next time, don’t hold back what you feel.

    probably not. Straight white males need not apply here.

    Betcha didn’t regret cashing those paychecks. Grow up for gods sake.

    Companies are not in business to hire people and provide them with a livelihood.

    Employees are another line item on the corporate balance sheet like any other expense.

    When the ROI is no longer meeting the corporate expectations you reduce expenditures. Economics 101.

    Must have gone to a diversity workshop. Take one step back if you were anything but a white male over 40. Oh - you lose.

    OMG you're an idiot and clearly part of the problem. Companies ARE in business to hire people and to provide them with a livelihood. That is why they are called employees. No one has a problem cashing in on paychecks THEY EARNED. Did I mention that you're an asshole and a moron? GNE spends money like a drunken sailer yet has no problem consistently laying off employees year after year. Employees look for companies that will value them and offer some reasonable level of security. Employees don't apply for companies hoping for a couple year gig. One more thing God deserves a capital G not g, but that is something I know you wouldn't be vaguely familiar with. Please, go to hell.

    Wow, seem to have struck a nerve or someone is off their meds, perhaps both.

    Employment at will means an employee can be terminated at any time without any reason, explanation, or warning. It also means an employee can quit at any time for any reason – or no reason at all.

    Companies are in business to produce goods and services and they receive revenue in exchange for those good and services. Employees are part of the process necessary to achieve those results. In other words, employees are a means to an end. They are not the purpose of business, they are a byproduct.

    When a car manufacturer cannot sell the cars they are making fast enough they reduce production and employees. Would you have them keep building cars that they are unable to sell?

    Lastly, I am certain God would not be pleased by your vitriolic name calling and vengeance, but you take that up with Him.

    I'm not going to speak for whoever posted originally. While it's all at will or accepted when companies start tanking, it is how genentech does it.

    When there is a guise of being a best place to work for, leaders trying to assure you the business is going to be fine (or that it's for some other bs reason they need to rid people), and worse, get rid of valuable colleagues and keep dumbass people in a sly way.
