5 pm meeting

New / Eng Infogix
Jun 28 116 Comments

HR scheduled a 5pm meeting with me, today. In the front conference room that does not require a badge, to access. She said “don’t worry,” in her email.

I don’t have access to Jira.

I don’t have access to confluence anymore.

All of my stocks have been rescinded.

What’s going on here?

      Good luck.

      Best case scenario is some kind of idiot formality where you go "wtf was I so worried about"

      It’s almost sad. Why do they have to ruin your weekend and not do it on Monday? After Monday you have the whole week off ;)

    • Gives people time to cool off and go through the stages of trauma. Otherwise they can come next day and be toxic, think of damaging projects, or just go postal.

      Well yeah. But if they fire you, don’t you have to leave immediately with no coming back.

    • Some places keep you two weeks for knowledge transfer.
      Jun 28
    • People are less likely to come back and blow the place up on Monday.
      Yes, thinking about physical attacks is something we have to do when firing someone.

    • Yea, wtf was he worried about being fired for if he’d already accepted a new job?

      Not to mention that half the shit he was using as evidence could have been discovered as non-relevant by simply talking to a coworker.

    Take that severance. Buy that one way flight ticket to Brazil and enjoy life for 2 months. What are you scared of? This is not the end of the world, it’s life directing you to a new path. Freakin embrace it and keep your head high homes!

    She is trying to get you to self incriminate. Just plead the 5th. No recollection of any meetings this week.

      Why do you think she called you in at 5pm on a Friday instead of during normal hours?
      Jun 28
    • If it’s you, it might be strike one or stoke two. Don’t fuck up for at least 6 months or the case against you is complete.

      She said it was the only time slot she had. That’s part of the culture here.

    It turns out that meeting was about someone (I have no clue who because the HR lady was so vague) — but someone was yelling at someone and being mean to someone in meetings.

    My skip just walked by because apparently this is causing a “ruckus,” he said.

    He also said his stocks got wiped.

    • Why the fuck wouldn’t that explanation have been part of the meeting invite or part of a company wide email? Jesus Christ

    Boss sent a slack message. “Some people had their stocks messed up in E*TRADE because of a recent spin off IPO.” 🥳

    Apparently I’ll get them back by Monday night.
