I joined a publicly traded company less than 6 months ago, as a full time employee, along with 5-10 people in various "IT" roles. The company has announced "cost cuts" of millions of dollars. Moreover, we recently moved a lot of non-technical jobs offshore.
I fear losing my job, despite performing well here & improving things, because I am new and I still have a lot to learn about the company's systems. What is the best way to bring up my concerns to my manager without giving them the feeling that I might be having second thoughts ?
PS - My manager likes the work I have been doing so far. Unfortunately, we don't know each other enough for him to open up to me about such matters.
As an aside, if I know I am in the list of lay offs, then should I offer to take a pay cut instead ?
