The Many has had two huge rounds of layoffs in like 2 months. How will they get anybody to come work with them moving forward? Will they have to change their name or something? Who wants to work somewhere where there is something around every corner.
Real estate is hard enough, it gets worse when your partner tells you they wish they had your properties. For some reason it felt like a threat to get me fired.
I was laid off yesterday due to change in my departments objectives, does anyone know of any Medicare Advantage opportunities in the Payer Space that align with IT and Operations?
Single parent w/ 2 young kids & a mortgage and recently decided to pursue FL vs FT work after being laid off. A month in, loving it & finding myself very busy. Is this a honeymoon phase?
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. Im on the hunt for a new job and am fairly new to this lovely city. If you know of anyone looking for marketing specialists or would like to network let me know. Id love to connect!
What is the first clue that layoffs are coming?
Advice needed: my husband recently got laid off and is looking to pivot career paths. His primary experience is in sales (specifically signage and automotive), but he’s interest in shifting into manufacturing and supply chain positions. He is still working towards his Bachelors in Business, so he does not have a degree just yet. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Extremely toxic work environment & interviewing for other jobs. Would you 1) risk being fired (unsure when) or 2) quit/give notice and risk not having an offer fast enough? My finance is set and I’m primarily concerned about professional reputation. Somewhat unsure what to say to interviewers with whom I already started the process, though the real reason is role is nothing like advertised worsened by diff personalities… What would you do?
Please help. I was laid off this past week. I am international and my OPT is coming to an end very soon. I had a call with an immigration lawyer and Deloitte unfortunately does not offers additional support for immigrants aside from said call. I am in need of a job ASAP. I have until July 24th to find a job or I will have to start a new educational program or leave the US.
Leaving the US is personally not a viable option.

I have been going on interviews and noticed 2 department heads already assume I was laid off or fired due to a 4 months gap. I explained I left my last role due to short term health issues that have been resolved. Not even sure how to respond when they assume. Any advise? Thanks!
I just joined a company that went through layoffs last week. It’s awk being part of meetings where the company is providing support to existing employees. I feel so guilty that I’m replacing some of these long term employees and friends of the existing ones. I’m also feeling very anxious about high expectations now and what if I’m the next
I got an offer from Cognizant. I would like to know how is Cognizant as last year it fired a lot of employees
EY update: No pbb, no raises, and we are essentially doing layoffs (solid performers who are utilized being let go without any prior notice). Again EY comes out top of the big 4
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. 😭
Ok so I've read or heard about layoffs recently from all big four except KPMG (obviously with the worst being at Deloitte and PwC and then some at EY in specific teams or sectors). Continued below:
Recently accepted an offer at Twitter (I haven’t resigned yet thankfully) and of course have yet to hear back since the news of the layoffs.
Am I crazy to move forward if the offer isn’t rescinded? I’m deflated after many rejections, unhappy in my current role and the role is something I’m passionate about - I’m also no better off in terms of TC and frustrated since there will be no RSU package due to the acquisition.
I have very mixed feelings after how they treated their staff this week!
Hi Fishes, how is employment security in current situation like in PANW? I saw some HR post about their layoffs on LinkedIn. Anything coming for technical team?Palo Alto Networks
I read to the kids a book that ended with a line like, "If it was a good story, start all over."I told the kids I really only did that once in my life regarding a book about a teacher going to teach in Africa. In reality it was about a missionary. I hid the name of it and what it really was about. In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?
If layoffs were to happen in the industry, who does it usually affect first? Jr positions? CDs? Random positions?

Best of luck.

Before people get triggered, I myself have been let go 4 times and know how fucked this industry is.
I'm not justifying or saying the old farts have it right cos clearly we don't.
But I turn 45 and I'm aware of the generational differences, work ethics, and POV towards WLB. The reactions to FB responses are revealing.
So I'm curious. How much of it are changing values, different work ethics, expecting life to swimmingly go our way, or lack of grit for lack of a better phrasing.
Anyone worried about the high turnover in media?

Replace "the many" with any other agency lol. It's a common business practice.
This happens at a lottttt of agencies, so i dont think theyll have to change their name
It helps to remember that these are just billable hours businesses. If we charge clients more money in billable hours than we pay in salary and expenses, then we make money. It’s not like Tesla or Amazon or something where the business can lose money for twenty years straight, but investors still fund it because they see a massive payoff coming. If an agency is spending more than its making for even a few months, whoever owns it most of the time won’t tolerate it. Which means staffing ups and downs will keep happening.
This is what I don’t understand about advertising. Hiring and firing over and over. And everyone falls for it, over and over, and goes to work with agencies with a reputation of chronic bad business management. I asked my agency when I interviewed about layoffs, they said no layoffs. Nine years later, no layoffs.
I’d suspect that pharma agencies have layoffs at significantly lower rates than consumer. Generally, I don’t think any agency can promise “no layoffs” since that’s up to the budget more than whichever middle manager you’d meet on an interview.
Lose enough clients and money to the point where there’s no work, and I’d kinda expect layoffs.
Well it’s no longer The Many, that’s for sure #toosoon
I think a lot of their layoffs were contractors and freelancers too just FYI
Not sure why a company with any understanding of PR (which an ad agency should have) would announce that it is "laying off" freelancers.
The few. The proud. The Many.
A brutal mix of poor planning, disconnected leadership, and client constrictions. Them’s the breaks for a small independent that doesn’t have a network to float a bad quarter or two with a scary economic outlook looming. DM if you’re interested in discussing more than gossip.
They'll change the name to The Few. In all seriousness though, what lead to drop in business? A run of bad luck, changes in leadership? I don't know much about them--I've just seen the recent headlines.
It was Google shopping. But also mismanagement of hiring too many without a sustainable plan.
