AOL cuts 900 Jobs Worldwide 20 pct of Work Force

Post by js123 on Sat Mar 12, 2011 11:19 pm

Layoffs not only in U.S. but also in India. I wonder if we will hearing about more layoffs overseas from U.S. companies.

"About 200 of the cuts are from AOL's content and technology departments in the U.S. The remaining 700 are at AOL's offices in India, which mainly provide back-office support to the U.S. But AOL spokesman Graham James said 300 of those will move to other companies, which are taking over support functions."

This is how they did the lay offs.

AOL Layoffs Do Not Reflect Armstrong’s View Of Being Sensitive

:Based on the information, they called all the managers into a meeting, presumably to talk about the lay off process and then who was going to be let go. As soon as the managers were in a meeting, they then called all the employees who were going to be let go into another meeting. In a very short meeting, people were told they no longer have a job and get one weeks severance pay for each year that they worked at AOL. Then they were gone."

EDIT: Here's who the type of worker they let go.

"One of the most interesting points was the type of people who were let go. It seems that those who were the better workers on some teams were let go without regard to the job performance they do. Some teams lost 50 – 75% of the best team members with the lay off. It makes one wonder just how the decisions were made or was it just about the numbers?"

This is the exact same way that they did it to all of us where I worked except, they closed our whole location. Sad

Companies have been using this method for a long time now. I think it's tactics like this that lead to PTSD in some of the people that lost their jobs.

It was so sudden with no warning and I think everyone else was in denial or shock because I was the only one that was visibly upset.
