People like these boil my blood. Justifying layoffs is never acceptable! Why can’t C-suite or executive reduce their TC and bear the burden? FFS.

I mean, there's a smidgen of truth in that sometimes layoffs are a net good (some jobs are better than no jobs). But they doesn't mean other options shouldn't be considered first or that we should EVER BE HAPPY TO BE LAYED OFF

OR TO FEEL BLESSED THAT SOMEBODY ELSE PROFITS FROM OUR LABOR

As someone who professionally reduces headcount.. it’s a necessary evil. Organizations hire too fast or don’t grow to expectations and need to lean out. No different than eating too much around the holidays and then cleaning up in January.

Senior Director seems like an experienced leader OP, you should listen to them

So at Meta ONE person had a stupid billion-dollar idea, 11k laid off and we should be ok with that. Alrighty then

That’s what. It was his idea and he’s an executive. He could have taken a $5bn max hit in his net worrh and those employees need not be fired!

Layoffs are the company last resource to survive, it should be rather up to the business and ultimate consumer to make the decision on keeping business or buying from a company that is affecting families, in Europe we are more conscious about that in other countries.

People really overestimate how much executives make & underestimate the value they bring. If you cut every partners salary in half at the B4, employees would get maybe 30k more per year and some partners would be making less than directors.

C suite comp is mostly equity and tied to performance of the business…

Yeah, had the same reaction to this post. Sure, the part about being thankful is absolutely stupid. But OPs opinion that layoffs are never justified and that c-suite should just take the hit is equally naive.

As someone who was laid off in secret during the pandemic…fuck this person.
When other employees found out about the secret layoffs, they literally said “we would have taken pay cuts to keep our teammates” many of them were leads or managers.

The CEO would not even engage that conversation.

If you’re in a position of some power and do not have any empathy for others, you are doing a disservice to all who work with you and report to you.

Lmao I would rather we cut our workforce by 20% than take a pay cut. If the partners want to take the hit, they can be my guest. They would be the only ones to benefit from keeping people around.
