Was told that a couple of senior managing director was fired this month in strategy, all well respected guys. Is this more of a new CEO thing or we are actually firing people level by level .....

My director low-balled me on my offer and wouldn't negotiate. He got fired for doing the same thing to women on our team, now we're getting raises. Police escorted him out and I lol'd real hard

Just got out of a meeting with a client. Talk about uncomfortable- they'd fired their director that morning and he ran in screaming at the team. They ended up calling security to kick him out!

Laid off and come to find out much of it was because a director under me sold me out. And I really tried my best to help him but after 3 months I felt blindsided. Why does this industry suck?
