Stuck in a weird limbo where I want to leave my job more than anything but grateful that I have one at all with all the layoffs in our industry. It's a new kind of trapped. Anyone else feels the same?

Hi everyone, unfortunately I was recently affected by a layoff at my company. About 30% of their marketing department along with other departments were all let go. I have 3+ professional experience with product marketing, digital marketing, and event management. If you know of anyone looking for marketing specialists or just want to network in general let me know. I would love to connect!

“ God I wish we were doing layoffs again so I can take the severance package and get the hell out of this hell hole of a job.”

Has anyone successfully negotiated an early retirement exit through a layoff round? If so, how did you approach? I still have equity in the table vesting in the next 12 months and really don’t want to walk away from it, but would be very open to exit early and of course gracefully for fair offer. Just afraid to raise it. I suspect we have a round coming soon and don’t have reason to believe I’m in it.

A line cook in our diner got fired recently because he was found to be spitting in every item of food that was returned to the kitchen. I thought this only happened in movies, I had never heard of it before in real life. Craziest part is that apparently some of the other cooks were aware of this and never reported it.

What's the best course of action when you find yourself at a job that's far more chaotic than you assessed while interviewing? Upon starting this job a couple of weeks ago, I discovered between the time I interviewed and my start date they had hired a new CEO, laid off all of their off-shore teams, changed my position to a new hiring manager, and added an on-call rotation to all engineering teams. None of this showed up in my research of the company or my interviews.

6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM. I come from a Big4 consulting firm with a background in Enterprise Performance. I’ll be honest and say I’m not feeling very safe in my current role with the ongoing layoffs. Instead of leaving, I’d love to go back to my “consulting roots” and join the ProServ team. I’m taking my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam next weekend. Hoping this freeze is lifted soon.

Ultimately I think we will be ok, but I know he's hurting / stressed / and could use a supportive partner.
