I'm wondering what deal Apple gave the "iCar" people who were laid off (as opposed to reassigned to other projects).
Come to think of it, the only person I know who has been laid off recently was at Google Fiber when that project reduced by a sizable chunk. Offer was, for some months proportional to years-of-service at any Alphabet company, that you'd keep receiving a paycheck and get priority placement with Google/Alphabet recruiters for re-hiring in the company. Get re-hired in that time, and you keep your vacation, RSU's, etc. In effect, a paid mini-sabbatical.
That reflects well on Alphabet.
What did you get with your layoff? Any company, though I'm particularly interested in that Apple "skunkworks" project... if indeed there were any layoffs, I'd think Apple would want to keep that talent around for other projects.. maybe they had more drive-train specialists and transportation policy wonks than they knew what to do with.
