Their manager dismissed the concern as a technical issue until they were informed about the sack via email.
"I was blocked out of everything. And then I saw on the news about 15, 20 minutes later that Google was announcing 12,000 layoffs."
Ryan posted on Linkedin:
"I didn't anticipate it to end so abruptly, being locked out of the system in the middle of a call.
"My contract was just extended for another year, and I was transferred to the Cloud Sales recruitment team (an area of enormous development), and only a week ago there was mention of a wage raise, so I was taken off surprise.
"However, I will be forever grateful for everything I learned and to all the fantastic people I had the pleasure of working with."
