Are layoffs happening? Haven't noticed

False.

Layoffs no - hiring freeze or x-fer to in-house ....yes. All part of the cycle.

False.

Since 2008...It does seem like it. There's definitely a lot more empty seats and space in the company refrigerator compared to a year ago.

False

Been in this business since 2002 and there has been nothing but a steady stream of layoffs my entire career. The worst was in 2008. And smaller little annual purgings have plagued every agency I’ve been at since.

What’s sad is that because the companies are turning profit with lower staff numbers, they have no reason to bring back additional staff.

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

One of the primary aims of the criminal justice reform movement is to help ex-convicts re-enter the workforce by sealing criminal records, and making it more difficult for employers to judge applicants based on criminal history. The idea is that people are redeemable and capable of reform. Yet the same movement thoroughly enjoys getting people fired and publicly shaming them for making arguments they find “offensive”. A rapist is capable of reform, but not someone who makes a dumb tweet. Got it.

I wanted to be supportive CHAZ/CHOP here in Seattle but I can’t be anymore. This is no longer a BLM movement protest (which I fully support & protest with) but instead is true anarchy. 1 dead & 1 injured (critical condition) this weekend and tonight over 24 shots fired already tonight in the area. When I first went down to this area last week I felt safe, today I went down there & was scared out of my mind. Seattle get your sh*t together.

I don’t feel bad at all for people getting fired for making reckless remarks on their social media platforms about BLM. You have a choice to get on the right side of history, make sure you choose wisely.

I didn’t get laid off from Havas like so many others did yesterday, but I want to know how long I can work at this agency without losing my reputation. Industry people, I need real talk. How much like fools does the ad industry consider people who work at Havas? Is it understood in this climate that somtimes you just need a job or do we look like talentless sellouts for working here? When recruiters see books from a Havas employee, do they toss it straight into the garbage?
