It sucked! Lost a few co-workers.

What is interesting is there is no outrage on how Google executed this. Sending an email in the middle of the night, then cutting off all access. You couldn't even say bye to people you worked with.

Literally the cruelest layoff I have ever experienced, no perks were cut, only people.

It is happening with many companies:
"More than 46,000 workers in U.S.-based tech companies have been laid off in mass job cuts so far in 2023, according to a Crunchbase News tally, and the year is just getting started. That number includes Microsoft's 10,000-person cut and Google parent Alphabet's 12,000-person layoff announcements this week."

I wonder how many who voluntarily walked from Twitter are doing - maybe now Uber drivers....
