Is Cisco having Layoffs tomorrow?

Read on layoffs.com that layoffs are happening tomorrow...Is this true? Can anybody here confirm? I also read on Blind that Cisco isn't hiring this year anymore? Is this across all departments? Never heard of companies doing this before...Should I take a pass on applying to Cisco? Seems like things are not going well? Am I wrong?

      That's has become a norm even at Oracle. You must have seen Oracle blind threads full of layoffs news.

      Yup - the leaders of these orgs should be cut as it was under their guidance and direction that their shit failed
      Aug 2
    • Amazon hzhahjj
      In an ideal world yes. Cisco is far from that. Leaders will stay and start new shit. Rank and file will prepare resumes esp if you don’t have internal contacts to save you

      Partially agree - the ones that are cut from way before are the SVPs.. the directors still have too much power and control and leeway that they can fuck up huge and be safe... chuck figured it out cleaning C suite. But he’s gotta keep going to next few levels too

    They should use ML to predict who to layoff then just do next 2 years' layoffs in one swoop. Cleaner

    Several contractors were already let go. Full time follows shortly afterwards.

    Don't take layoffs.com as a legitimate source of information. It is mostly a hang out for the laid off and/or disgruntled peddling doomsday predictions.

    It is sad - but hopefully those getting LR’ed should have seen it coming long ago to them, and hopefully all their peers knew it too. We are trying to help everyone out as much as we can over here still

    Any intelligent company even person knows change is the only constant innovation does come with change and lay-off and hires help organizations transform the goal should be how do you transform to innovate so you are ready for new positions when old ones become redundant... the growth mindset is a really good place to start

      Nice koolaid. There are other options like hiring better, planning better. Layoffs shouldn’t be part of plan A like Cisco has

      Intelligence has nothing to do with you firing someone, people in other companies can switch between departments or roles. Build from within and diversify your staff not drop them like a bad habit. Build upon the people is the correct way to grow, that should have been his growth mindset.

      Firing constantly is not good, it creates fear among the employees.

    Are these layoffs employee performance related?
    Aug 2 2
    • Cisco yAIx03
      No, plain cut of the whole groups in many cases

    • Infinera xJaD20
      They are executive performance related. But the individual contributors face the consequences instead.

    Quarter/annual layoffs doesn’t mean they stop hiring altogether. Layoffs could be because of re-org. Keep applying, it might not affect your org altogether.

    • Ring / Eng aXrq35
      If they do a layoff, wouldn't it mean that they cannot hire similar title people?.
