      Reduction in Force. A consulting company term to gloss over the term layoff.

    • Consulting term is 'synergy' and 'VC=value capture'. Don't teach kids wrong buzzwords.

    That is not necessarily RIF. This is the perfect time to quit if you have a new gig lined up because you maxed your bonus. I sent my goodbye email yesterday and was not rif’d

    Some teams in Microsoft (including azure) have even fired entire teams in less than 2 weeks after they hired them. Such jerks.

      Just because the company is doing well doesn’t mean there are no layoffs. Since Satya became the CEO, this has been a quarterly event without fail.

    Lol - if everyone exiting is considered a RIF , you should go to the doctor :) I heard all “consultants” will be RIFed tomorrow - best of luck - if you are safe , it will happen the next day - any day .

    Strange, why would these people post it on LinkedIn ., like someone is really caring for them other than their family.
