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?

That person is jockeying for your position. Super common move in this industry. It’s like playing professional Survivor with allies, back channels and sabotage. Exhausting.

Ugh. Being laid off happens to mostly everyone in our industry (and there are especially a lot going on right now) but no matter what it always stings. I hope you’re ultimately able to move on to some place better, with better coworkers and communication. 💛

Friend, I feel you. I’ve been let go due to other people’s incompetence. Know that karma is real. Don’t give up being a good person.

And why can't adults use their adult words and communicate with their bosses? I'm so angry and shocked and still in disbelief. Managers can't help their direct reports if they are not communicating or asking for help.

Sorry that sucks. Hope you got a good payout and walk into an awesome job elsewhere.

That happened to me too. But I was lucky to find another opportunity and get out.

This is really fresh for me. Just happened a week ago. I am taking the advice from people that everything happens for a reason. I’m not quite there yet. Still feeling pretty hurt and betrayed. I was completely blindsided. What has helped me recently is reaching out and connecting to those who have gone through this and made it out successfully on the other side.
