32 total. 2 of which are coming to the NYC office later today

@DigitasLBi3, agreed. But as usual, it seems like the grunts are the ones impacted.

Being in the office is super eerie. Empty desks left and right

At least 250 or so. Maybe 300? Seems quiet though

Didn't you do that in November too?

That's partly it. Shire's business also hasn't materialized to what DH was hoping for end of last year. A few leadership folks got hit. And more than a few "grunts."

Yeah I just found out a higher level shire guy was let go. He was pretty dang useless though.

I have 12 mth contract to finish an exam. Due to mh I was not able to complete this despite asking my mngr several times for appropriate accomodations. Even while I was w/i my contract he did not take the pressure off of me. Now that it is close to the deadline, my mh has declined as a result making it even more difficult to complete. Is it reasonable that at this time he started to talk about the economy and potential lay offs?

Got laid off, need hearts to DM people for referrals.

About me: More than 2 years of experience, but 28 years old. Really feeling low.

Does termination/layoffs look bad on resumes? Do people get reduced pay in their next offers?

Got laid off recently due to lack of work. It hurts that it’s right before my spouse’s birthday and the holidays. Would anyone be able to refer me to another firm or any Staff or Senior Accountant positions as long as the work environment is not toxic with good pay and benefits? I have 7 years of Public Accounting experience. Thanks so much!

I’ve stopped using recruiters entirely a while back. All I continue to hear is how people get ghosted now without even letting them know they didn’t get the job or whatever happened. How many times has a person not worked out from one of these agencies? (Aerotek, Robert half, insight global). We’ve had about 5 just this year quit / get fired within a few months. All the same people who drink the corporate kool aid. Stop giving these people money. Hire with HR, people who know your business…

So I've had 2 hiring managers and several recruiters from Amazon reach out to me about applying for some open positions with the company (android). I completed the coding assessment and now they want me to go through a round of 5 hour interviews next week. Is there a good chance I'll be hired if engineering managers are reaching out to me? I'm really not sure how badly I want to work for them and I don't want to be laid off months after being hired on. Anyone know what Amazon hiring is like?
