This company hired me based on my experience without any consideration of being 63 years old at time of hiring. I was not the only person in that age group who was a new hire by this company.
If you are not one of the "good old boy" group of managers , it is very hard to work at this company once you are 55+
Their goal is to be a young-minded company. So in their last RIF, every one of the 50+ employees let go were over age 45. These were the ones most qualified to be in their positions.
When I was laid off from there, every one of 57 people was age 45 or more. They opted for a younger (and less experienced) workforce to manage a $175 million a year PMO. Dumb.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
