So far so good

In my inbox this morning: Difficult decisions were reached today as IT continues to meet our corporate commitments. Staff in various departments were released from their employment with [company] immediately.

While our CEO was talking to the shareholders about how he is going to cut our staff levels down 25% by 2016, they were bustling about firing people in IT. I guess I should feel relieved that I survived the "too incompetent to keep around" cuts.

Now we start getting into the "redeploy" and "attrition" rounds, so things could still be interesting for me - though I don't have the age or service to fall into the latter group.
