    -lay offs are random

    Advice to Management

    Work on raising your profit margins besides cutting costs. We all know you lay off employees because all you care about is satisfying shareholders and making money. Too bad you can't buy Amazon just like you bought out all of the other competition. It's a shame such a great company has fallen to such bad standards over the years. Only the employees who are in the top category of sales have a safe future. HR needs to work on being more unbiased, when people can make rumors and management downtalks certain employees openly there shouldn't be a discussion to dismiss their behavior.
