Advice to Management

Stop trying to do the dirty works for other corporations who try do massive layoff without a bad PR for a small fee. Your dirty work and a quick paycheck affect thousands of people and their families. Most of my peers were hard working, knowledgeable employee. They were gone because you moved the work elsewhere to less capable people.
