There are 2 types of high tech employees :

Those who think they will NEVER GET LAID off

and

those who have been laid off

And it will happen.

I was told once by an grey beard at IBM that after 20 years when his entire team was laid off only to be hired back the SAME DAY as contractors , that corporations really hate employees and view them only as a means to make a profit for the elites. We are all disposable as old printer cartridges when they dry up .

There is a reason you don't see many middle age people working at many hi-tech companies - they are no longer wanted.
