    Laid off 33% this time last year, but we finished the year very strong (hired ~25%), wage deductions still in effect. The company has very strong books coming into 2016, and our share price actually increased (private company). Here's hoping for the best in 2016...

    No and no. We just paid a company wide dividend of 28% which was the lowest in 10 years. Still have lots of work in the books and even more upcoming.

    Where is the no and no and increasing dividend and hiring more people?

    I want an option

    Yes and Yes. I was shocked to hear the lay off of 1500 people announcement at Telus in November, and shocked again mid December to hear that there was going to be more in mid January.

    The amount of accounts and projects they lost on the service side, I'm not surprised about layoff, just the scale.

    Are all of these 1500 truly considered layoffs because I've heard from some old coworkers who are still that there's some people who will be leaving through voluntary early retirement packages - I would have been in that category (voluntary early retirement package) if I hadn't resigned a number of years ago.

    Oh yeah, packages were offered, some took early retirement, so that initial 1500, wasn't a TRUE 1500 layoffs, but more along the lines of the elimination of 1500 positions. Some people did get packaged out like nzwasp.

    This next round, while unsure of what kind of numbers are being proposed, I imagine will be pretty much wholly layoffs.

    No, No won a few jobs in December that will keep us busy through until August.

    Not looking good for a lot of our customers though. Already seen a bigger one disappear this year.

    It's pretty busy poll already.

    I think if you are working it's good enough, doesn't matter how much.
