Damn, sorry OP. At least you know it's not you...it's "let's create four new upper-level management positions and fire the people who do the work to recoup that money and see if that makes us less slow" Ogilvy. Good luck at your next shop.

likeupliftingsmart

OP, been there with Ogilvy. I see they’ve changed their MO on timing. They used to fire on Tuesdays. So, everyone knew if they made it through the day, they were safe for another week. Best of luck to you. It will work out

Curious, with layoffs do you get severance? If it the state is at-will, layoff with no package? Or is dependent on how nice the agency wants to be?

So sorry OP. Sending hugs and wishing you all the good things, right around the corner, waiting for you.
