I heard today from a person in HR that another round of layoffs are coming in the Fall of 2019. Anyone else hear this or know anymore information?

I’m surprised so many people got worked up about layoffs. Speaking from my experience, we are so much overworked at this visionless company and with lousy salaries that at this point layoffs could come as a blessing to us. Maybe it’s not so bad to... — read more
