Help!: What do you see as alternatives to layoffs? Our six partners (we’re 100 people total) reduced comp to $0 to save and it’s not enough. 25% of staff is unbooked (high!) with no end in near sight.

Anyone read this half-assed email from Canning about how “being about 2% over our projected demand for staff which is now being addressed?” Seems to be a pretty lackadaisical way of addressing layoffs

I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?

So I (S3) hooked up with my staff 3. Honestly it came out of no where. Any advice on how to approach today? Will I get fired? 🤗 the closer I get to my clients filing of their 10-k, wouldn’t mind tbh.

Mic laid off its entire staff, sold the name to Bustle, and is relaunching with an entirely new staff. Read the union's statement on the fiasco.

If agencies are dying, and yes, women CDs, like myself, have gotten laid off, what’s next?? The freelance market is really tough right now especially after being staff for 10+ years. I feel like I’ll

I think I'm going to get fired. I'm staff 1 and in my first audit. I "found" something and brought it up for a 2nd look just in case. It escalated and now I'm in a middle of a mess. (Cont)

My company folded and the CEO fired everyone and only guaranteed 2 days pay... He was on vacation when this was sent out to the entire staff.

Staff 2, worked at 3 clients in the past busy season. Around 70% of my feedback are “Often”, 20% “Usually” and 10% “Always”. Shall I worry about being fired?

There’s like 8 staff (out of 60ish) unassigned in the heat of busy season. People are definitely getting fired aren't they?

Staff sent out paper AR confirms and got them back. Manager saw them and asked why their wasn't fold marks. Turns out staff forged signatures cause he didn't send them. Partner came out and fired him!

if u need to layoff staff because of account losses or to save upper management bonuses, start by firing all the sexual harassers, racists, and douchbags. that's 15 - 30 percent of ur company for sure

Just got laid off. Why hire so many people if you don’t have the work to support the staff? We can’t always control our bench time. This firm really is the fucking worst
