Oh god I didn’t even think of that.

Yeah I heard R/GA was having layoffs in NY and SF offices. Brutal.

RGA gave 4 weeks severance pay (most cases - I’m sure some people got more) and is covering healthcare through the year for everyone.

I will say the best younger creative I worked with in the few years before leaving Ogilvy came from the la office. So it could be ny is where the big problems are. Some really awful top folks there, Of that I’m sure.

Aww I'm so sorry to hear. Are any south African offices affected?

V3 are you in Joburg or Cape Town?

How many have to leave JL and is it mainly creative?

About 20 folks in total. They dissolved the Project Management department but the rest of the losses were scattered between creative, design, and account
