If you got hired, then you probably won’t be laid off until next year.

.... that’s me being tongue in cheek. You’re probably fine if you did get an offer. The firm is huge, so even if they are laying off tons of people, they are also growing.

Specifically geared toward other folks working at startups/tech companies- anyone else feeling extremely anxious about all the recent layoffs? I’m starting to have pandemic flashbacks…my company is doing fine, but I think back to March 2020 when my last company’s CFO assured us we had close to two years of runway and then 10% of the company was laid off in April. Sucks to know that your role is always the first to go in times of turbulence.
