Stay humble Strategy brothers and sisters. I’m covering a tech manager that has gone on leave and if I’m not fired by the end of the week it will be a miracle. BS isn’t helping. I need to know things😱

I’m gonna cry. In the beginning of the SIP my firm let some people go, my manager got fired because she did something stupid, and now a person on my team has quit without notice and I’m stuck

How do layoffs work if we’re all working remotely? For example: Does the direct manager and someone from HR do it? Does your computer stop working immediately? Do they ask you to mail your computer and ID badge in? Is it done via videoconference?

If you complain to a coworker’s manager and later that same day you fired because of “team compatibility reasons”, could this be grounds for a retaliation lawsuit despite living in an ‘at will’ state?

If you knew your close coworkers were going to be included in layoffs, would you tell them? My manager gave me a heads up, in confidence, to assure me that I was safe, and I’d be betraying her trust.

Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.

Curious how layoffs have been initiated at other agencies...I’ve heard they’ve been happening on zoom, is a mysterious invite just put in your calendar? Did you get a call from your manager?

Assuming this causes a recession like in 2008, and many people get laid off, how long to take to find another similar paying job? I’m currently a strat manager in FS. Scared for job.

Is it ok to ask your manager if you’re about to be fired or if you should be looking for a new role?

Agency laid off all producers, is now having BA produce. BA texts laid off employees for vendor recs. 🙄 (the eye roll is at the agency, not the BA manager who didn’t sign up for this...)

For those that got laid off, specifically on the manager level, how long did it take for you to find another role you were satisfied with? I have about 5 months with savings and unemployment.

Suggestions on what to do on the first day/week after being laid off? Look for the next job? Yesterday I got one of those vague meetings and my PPMD showed up today with the Talent Manager.

About to get rolled off a project, manager thinks I’m underperforming. Has anyone gotten rolled off before and bounced back or do you usually get fired shortly after? This is the first time

Can a Senior Manager who otherwise has a good reputation, get fired for bullying? If not, will this person still make it to partner? There seems to be a lack of transparency in firms around this

I got called back from furlough last week and I feel lucky as hell. Today my manager told me that we officially laid off our social media manager, as well as 4 people from the art department. The “V line recovery” narrative is a myth

Working my first freelance gig and contract is up in a couple weeks. Was hired under “possible extension or full time hire.” Obviously the full time won’t happen but tips on asking about extension? It seems as if they need me (I’m a subject matter expert) but I started as the shelter in place began and it’s been hard to form relationships with client work changes, business changes, layoffs, etc. Should I email my manager or is a call better? Would appreciate your advice!
