Purrformance review

@P1, When you say performance, was there like a specific number below which a decision was made to lay off someone?

Counselor should know about this. Don't think partner will explain the details.

I mean the partners must have given some reason lol. They cannot lay off just someone without providing an explanation.

I'm sure they're gonna say. Bad rating, poor performance. Best of luck!!

"They cannot lay off just someone without providing an explanation" lol you would be surprised. I think they gave every vague answer possible and then after I demanded it in writing and they kept trying to get me to "jump on the phone" with them

What's no naive? They must have mentioned something regardless of whether it's the actual reason or not

Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!
