With more than 20 years under my belt, I have twice stupidly been brought in for interviews at the UKs biggest (based in Hatfield), fully automated food warehouse/delivery company. After the interview from hell the first time 4 years agi, I made it extremely clear I would not go throught that again last year.
What happens? I rock up on Zoom, undergo 7 hours of non-stop interviews (vs. F2F previously) only to have it sprung on me, you've still got to do our panel interview. Said company panel interview gives you 1 hour to prep, then you present and through totally B.S. decisions invisible to you, they give you the thumbs down with NO feedback.
Total. Utter. Moppets.
On every level.
When Phil was being harassed by the US Gov’t goon squad there was a legal defence fund setup that by buying a T-shirt with the algorithm on it you contributed. I wore it proudly to conferences and through airport security regularly to taunt officers.
I use OpenPGP on all my devices still to this day!
Any merger/acquisition that materially affects employee benefits is a very naughty move BEFORE the ink has dried. And an especially naughty move would be either company materially or directly affecting the other until the merger/acquisition is complete could be legally dangerous!
I hope the affected Arm employees are speaking to solicitors!
This is not an isolated incident, in fact if you work for an American company as you age you’d better watch your back. No matter how nice, cooperative, support others never say a bad word against your co-workers your younger boss hates you.
Having been through slightly different fracas twice in 10 years as a U.K. employee of an American company this shit is happening more and more as I get older. Even if you’re getting top score reviews you stand a damn good chance of trumped up b.s. against you being lodged. They’ll either offer you a payoff for your silence to quietly go away, or make up more hurdles and traps when you appeal.
Either way you’re likely to be fscked and even expensive U.K. employment solicitors completely unable to find a hole to counter the actions.
Been there, you’ve been warned of your potential future.
