Default Rumors...

I don't want to spread rumors, buuut?

I heard a rumor from a friend of a friend of a friend that knows a guy... that most (if not all) of the icon development team has been laid off/fired/left... and aren't getting replaced anytime soon... anyone know if there is any truth to this?

And in Safari.

If I were a moderator I would ban such links from the site.

Remarkable they will delete valid criticism but allow malware links.

yeah... I'm taking that link off of my signature for now... our server got hacked :-(
sorry about that... thanks for the heads up though...

my first question still stands...? ... or was it just a silly rumor... seems kind of far fetched...

Hardly ....

That said ... time doesn't stand still at Avid and things are in constant movement, which also means that teams - wether in development or engineering or sales or marketing or whatever - go through changes / get reorganized etc etc .... This 'Icon Development Team' which you refer to in reality consists of a multitude of 'teams', with members in Engineering / Program Management / Marketing / Sales and what have you ... often people who have multiple tasks. There is no such thing as 1 or 2 or even 3 or 4 people solely responsible for 'Icon Development'.
Maybe this friend of a friend who knows a guy who in fact knows a guy who moved to another position or maybe even left Avid to make a career move or whatever ... I sincerely doubt in essence this rumor is more than that.

Chris

Mostly I understand they laid off management and low-level testers and the like. They tried to retain the technical core while dumping salary of "dead weight" and thinning the hierarchy. That is sometimes a good thing, streamlining an organization while cutting costs, but sometimes it is a bad thing, as a lot of domain knowledge is lost that can't be replaced by commodity labor or management.

We will suffer or enjoy the consequences.
