Congrats to the soon to be dad . Sorry to hear about the firing too . Doesnt sound like much of a "team" if they let the high value people go like that . I was in the same boat where I was the senior manager at top scale and they found ways to make the task undoable , so I left and started my own company . I rewarded them by taking my customers and some of the "team" with me and making my former employers task a little more "undoable" day after day after day LOL .
It's not a team. They were told to fire 10 people, so anything that anyone does is subject to review. I think 3-4 people had left by the time they got to me. Some put in their two weeks, only to be fired immediately. Very strange place.
Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.

Sorry to hear about the firing, but glad you found another job so soon, and hopefully at a place that appreciates your talent more than the last one.
