Topics regarding layoffs at Goldman Sachs

Time to look for a new job

All companies have layoffs but few do it as callously and uncaringly as Goldman Sachs just did. I have no intention to continue working here after what just happened. Not to mention, I'm all but certain that we'll be expected to pick up the work left... —  read more 

At least we know now

I just hope that they're done with it this week, at least for this round. I don't want to have to stress over this for who knows how long. Get it over with, rip off the band-aid, and let us all move on. The prolonged layoff will just serve to... —  read more

Walk out with your head up

Unfortunately, layoffs are not fair and it is not at all rare that some good and capable people are laid off instead of those who do not add any value to the company. Instead of blaming yourself, go out with your head held high, because some other... —  read more

Layoffs are coming

Or firings, more like it. There's a hiring freeze and performance reviews are back. This means they'll be able to get rid of people without having to pay them severance. Very smart move. I would be okay with this as long as it's truly the poor... —  read more
