It's dumb ... they almost always overdo it and end up with corporate anorexia and loss of corporate knowledge.
Man, can I ever relate. My company has gone completely apeshit with the staff reduction over the past 6 or 7 years. They don't want to hear a voice of reason, they want everyone to jump on board and speak the corporate line. It's f****** nauseating and I refuse to do it.

What a dismal trend.
