Im in the final round of interviews at VMware and news came on Monday that they are being acquired by Broadcom. Is this something that I should be concerned about? I know layoffs can happen after a merger/acquisition but there’s not much overlap between the two companies (chipmaker vs cloud infrastructure). My job will be a Sr Business Analyst role in internal strategy/improvement Any advice from folks experienced in M&A?

Deloitte Slaughter, Part II - There’s a new story out of the Deloitte gossip machine, unverified for now. It seems they will be going through another bigger round of layoffs in the fall, once the voluntary program expires (mid-Sept). They already have a couple of scenarios and are populating names in each of these, mostly based on metrics. Anyone else hear this? When will the bloodbath stop...

Don’t know why, but I am not feeling afraid of getting laid off. And also I don’t feel like pushing to get another job in case that happens. I am fed up with this visa nonsense, the corporate slavery they have in name of H1B. And also this whole world in turmoil due to covid has left me thinking what better i could do to add value to the society. Adding to the agony of American dream is the civil unrest in US, trump again for 4 years, more guns, absurdity of USCIS etc.

B4 layoffs from beginning of pandemic - low performers or last in first out? Wondering for recruiting purposes.

I was laid off 2 months ago. I have 2 offers now: (1) staffing agency that has lots of experience with H1b transfers and (2) Series A startup that found me through Linkedin and I will be their first hire for my specific department but this will also be their first time sponsoring an H1B. The staffing agency is a safe bet because of the immigration issues. On the other hand, the startup opportunity will be an amazing step for my career. Is it risky to file for H1B with Series A startup?

My husband was fired last week entirely unexpectedly by his new boss (who started 6 weeks prior). HR told my husband they didn’t need a reason to fire him (which is true in our state). How is he supposed to explain his firing since he doesn’t even really fully understand why he was fired? For what it’s worth, three weeks prior to being fired, he provided some really direct feedback to his new boss to try to get him to stop micromanaging. That’s all we can come up with as a reason.
