Manager Got Axed

My manager was laid off and I subsequently transferred to a new team under a different manager. How long do you think I have until I’m next on the chopping block? I’m already looking for another job but it’s been pretty tough lately. —  read more 

Layoffs have started

Year-end bonuses

Year-end bonuses were very low this year, like one month's worth of groceries after tax. The CEO did warn about it though. What was your experience in other organizations?

No excuses
