I'm asking because I'm about to find out [or possibly find out. Just assuming I'm the one who's getting axed.] Last round of layoffs, they let go of a guy whose utility was low. This time, the crew is already fairly slim in our group -- everyone has a critical role. I, however, am the newest and know the least; therefore, in a seniority game, I am the one who will get cut. However, I haven't been around long enough to get any severance pay that's worthwhile. Would some veterans comment?
