I also had to leave, let go due to being "redundant" despite being a top performer, highly productive and bringing in revenue. More than any manager ever did. Received severence pay, sold shares and walked straight into my next job for two times the salary. Better off financially now than before.
Was told SAP looking at further restructuring in their consulting side in Jan 2018. More top heavy managers are appointed it seems and again the bottom employees will be thinned out.
Good luck ex colluegues. Stay strong.... and may the odds forever be in your favour.
