Anyone else read the MS memo on no layoffs in 2020? What do you think? I'm skeptical of their ability to follow through, especially if the market spirals downward into a long-term recession

Us white people need to put ourselves in colored people’s shoes. How would we feel working in a predominantly “colored” work environment where everyone wants us to act “colored” (whether Black, Asian, Latinx)? How comfortable are we going to be day by day when being yourselves mean no promotion and could get us fired? When our fate depends on another race who gives favoritism to their own race? Colored people are the most resilient people in corporate America. The true backbone of our success

I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.

Just had a client put a big m&a deal on hold indefinitely. Seeing this as a broader trend- investors selling, freezes on new deals. Worried we’ll see layoffs in our group soon. Anyone else?

Serious question- any RE experts here think the pandemic + layoffs will encourage people to move out of big cities and eventually bring down prices in NYC, SF, etc.?

Jack Welch is a complicated figure to me. He's definitely a pioneer in the industry, but he definitely created the layoff culture we have today
