High performer- part of hot offering (cloud) - at high end of salary

like

Based on my experience, people that were having conversations around transferring practices/offices were let go. The reason given was “fit”. Pretty harsh if you ask me, but kind of makes sense- these are the people that probably won’t be sticking around the team for long anyways.

It looks like no pattern but to summarize it was spread across

1. Low performers
2. On bench
3. High paid

I would add : 4. Staffing projections, 5. Offerings overall performance, 6. Time in role, 7. Sales targets

Were those laid off under-utilized? Low performers? At the top end of the salary band for their role? I’m curious to understand how the layoff decisions were made.
