What happens if the project you’re working on gets cancelled, but you’re meeting or exceeding expectations?

Asking from the perspective of an SDM.

    When a project gets cancelled there's a weird limbo state for a month or so. Good SDMs figure out other work. Good SDEs GTFO. The leftovers get laid off.

      Sounds similar to MS - you have six weeks to find an internal job and pass the interview, else you’re laid off.

      It is difficult to move around as an EM at Microsoft. Few openings and often on very different orgs/products.

  • Are you implying, you may be fired because of this?

    • I’m assuming you’ll be sucked into different projects because amazon is always hiring
