Are we safe until February?

I've seen February mentioned as next layoffs month several times. While I'm not happy about that, that is still a good several months away. Does that mean we are safe until then and we can stop stressing at least for those few months? At this point... read more

What are they thinking?

With most of the old-timers laid off, do they really think they can run this company with only millennials? Half of who don't even plan on staying longer than a year or two as it is? What kind of business strategy is that? Get rid of all the... read more
