If you work in media, pray that the MGM merger is denied. There would be huge consolidation layoffs as a result on both sides. I don't know who'd be hit worse, but the fact is that nobody would come out of it unscathed. I know it's still at least two... — read more

My manager has zero customer or sales experience! I can’t believe they hire unqualified clowns like this. Spending more time training this newbie on multiple fronts. I don’t get it, I thought AWS was smart
It’s been a year since I joined AWS. I was fully prepared for all the quirkiness I’ve read about online. Let me just say that things aren’t as they really appear. The reality is, people weaponize the leadership principles all the time in a... — read more

I was interested in a series of articles on Amazon and its competition (in this case Shopify) and the article emphasized that merchants are leaving Amazon for Shopify. I know that some will say that this has nothing to do with layoffs but rather the... — read more
Amazon has created this image of a company that rarely lays off people but the reason why that's true is that it's using and abusing its employees to the point where the only thing they can do is quit! Of course they don't do layoffs when everybody... — read more
