I heard that Zuckerberg went full Lawnmower Man and uploaded himself in to every ad server in the world.

Went through something like this years ago. Work year was actually great but come November all of a sudden all my expectations needed major overhaul with 6 weeks to go in the year. Come review time I was ranked Satisfactory but no raise. Two weeks later, everyone that got no raise was escorted out after turning in the company stuff.

I took it pretty hard because there was no way I did not perform that year, I was just chosen by whoever above along with 11K others. The following October I got a "follow up" letter from the state employment office asking if they could close my YEAR old file.

Although in this case, employees seem to believe that "PIP" actually translates to "You're Screwed."

That is exactly what PIP means. No one on a PIP will continue employment at the company for long. Eventually, you will be fired.

Corporations, subby? Why would corporations work to limit how many hours their employees work for free? I have no idea why you would think this was something the corps were doing. this is the employees. Quiet Quitting is when you work your hours, and nothing else will possibly drive you to work until your next shift starts.

While it may bite now, in the end, I think they'll find they're going to be better off, go full Lloyd.

I don't want to sell facebook, buy facebook, or process facebook as a career. I don't want to sell facebook bought or processed, or buy facebook sold or processed, or process facebook sold, bought, or processed, or repair facebook sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

Doomed enterprises have to get rid of their personal somehow.
Fire them, lay them off, run them off with abuse - bottom line, they ain't gonna be working there nohow.

Going to see a lot of this now that interest rates are up and free money is no longer free.

I like how a random post on an anonymous message board is generating headlines across the web.  Slow news week in tech circles?

I'd contribute to the defense fund if someone who burned down Facebook, without hurting or killing anyone

I PIP is like pissing off a woman. They say they forgive you, but they'll throw it back in your face first chance they get.

I had one years ago, my then manager was trying to screw me. I would have gladly accepted a layoff. When layoff time came an old manager pulled me off the waiver wire. At the meeting which I thought was the layoff, my manager was expressing his disbelief someone wanted me. If fact the old manager picked up 3 other people he was trying to get rid of. I still smile every time. I think of it. 31 years at the company I've seen some shiat.
