We got hit with pay decreases, 401K matches are suspended and bonuses for 2020 have magically disappeared—most likely for the duration of the year.

We're in the middle of the negotiations, but I probably will in a few weeks. Fortunately, I'm part of the unenployment fund.

Tons of furloughs here. Just slashed weekly pay of all salaried & hourly employees by 20%

Hi, folks,
Looking for a short-term contractor. This is not a long term role, though if you become interested in a long-term at this company (faang) after strong performance, open to that. Looking for an experienced recruiter who is interested in helping me build process and structure around recruiting (not actual recruiting itself). If you’ve done PM work in the past and are interested please let me know. Thanks.

Is it normal to feel like my project managers are super pushy? I understand we have deadlines, but lately I have been feeling very rushed. The workload and meeting amount has been getting crazy. Today I had 12 meetings, then a route comes to me with copy change requests and my project manager checks in with me 45 minutes after. I can’t sit in a meeting then come up with copy lines 45 minutes later. I guess I’m a slow worker but I’m still learning. Is this common?
