Big entity’s (such as Dean) do not appear to be any more kinder or gentler than state government:(
Termination is like that all over, I remember years ago when I worked for Kraft the security guards were at your desk with HR and your manager and escorted you out of the building in front of everyone, your personal belongings would find their way to your home a few days later. Earlier this year quite a few were let go where I work and it was similiar situations, with the exception of the security guard. You were still given a box to pack up your stuff in a matter of minutes and escorted out of the building by HR. I’ve always thought this is a very cold way to terminate employment anywhere, but understand employers can’t give you notice you;re going to be done on Friday at noon (or whatever), I’m sure there are many out there that would do damage before they left..
I wasn’t knocking Dean either, just joking! Lighten up Francis!
