Layoffs at Conectiva. Unofficial figures point towards a 15% cut at the main office in Curitiba.
Status update: hop.
Status update part deux: way too many people have been talking about this diary with no understanding of the underlying issues - and it's all my fault for giving out news without context. Yes, I thought the press release was entirely inaproppriate - hyprocritical even. But this doesn't change the fact that Conectiva is one of the few nice places to work in Brazil. No, I'm not overall happy with corporate policy, but we still do a pretty good work here, and nothing is going to change that for the foreseeable future. We rule, even though the company is being managed in a sub-optimal way in my opinion. Even what we consider suboptimal at Conectiva is still light- years ahead of what anyone else is doing.
For another point of view, though, go read ralsina's diary.
