Everyone is talking about good hikes, bonuses etc. Does anyone feel that there will layoffs this year for not meeting performance. Last year, it did happen and leadership tried to cover it saying, it happens every year based on performance but everyone knows the truth that they put more people in PIP and then forced exit than the other years. What's your take this year.

I was recently fired from a company for losing enthusiasm over the last few months. Part of my loss was due to being seriously talked down to by my male coworkers. I would ask a question to said one in particular and instead of just answering me he would explain the scope of the project like I hadn’t been working on it for weeks etc. There wasn’t an exit interview or a warning I was just fired on the spot. Should I say something? There are 6 employees, one female and they speak to her similarly

Went on a final interview today and the interviewer yawned through my presentation, was so BRUTAL with feedback, and was just super low-energy. This dude picked apart my entire presentation and frowned through all of it. Up until this point, everyone that I interviewed with said the presentation was great, but some things that need improvement. I just don’t understand how it’s normal that it’s expected that you make presentations and work for free— just to have someone take a huge shit on you.
