Massive layoffs at R/GA tomorrow. We have essentially lost most of our Samsung, Verizon and Nike business in last year. We’re losing a lot of good people tomorrow.

Honestly surprised at how many negative posts there are toward OP. Better for everyone to actually get a chance to save their work/get a jump on updating their resume. Genuinely curious how this "doesn't seem right".

Serious question... would you rather think you were laid off a day before or be completely blindsided

Oh man, not trying to start a panic. But just putting it out there. R/GA has been laying off people slowly for the past year to avoid a headline. It’s time the industry is made aware. And the employees to save their work.

Well since no one else said it I'll go with the obvious but apporopriate: Man, I'm really sorry to hear that. Great shop with tons of talent. I hope things recover soon. Best of luck.

Every agency loses clients and has layoffs. Some more than others. This is hardly airing dirty laundry. Lay off.

Thank you. I don’t understand what ignorance provides. Best to be aware tomorrow in case you go in and can’t figure out why everyone is in a sour mood.

Always save your work and update your site constantly. I'm surprised at how many people don't do this regularly.

Tough times hit every agency at some point. R/GA is a great place with amazing people and the rare shop with a meaningful point of view. They will recover and then some.

People generally have a good idea if they're on an account that was lost and at risk of layoff. They've probably been fearing it's happening every day anyway and at least they can prepare mentally that it's probably tomorrow. The moment people start funneling into HR or the first person starts packing their belongings, the same "on-edge" will happen, so it's really not much of an argument.

Just had my anatomy appointment (20 weeks). In and out within 20 mins. The doctor said he doesn’t have the luxury to sit and explain every detail to me as he’s trying to rush me out. And said there were 10 other patients laid on this bed before me. And he saw a covid patient earlier. I get it’s better safe than sorry.. but at the same time, I didn’t learn anything about my baby. Didn’t see a bit of organ development or where the fingers are or know the length of the my baby. Disappointed....
