Layoffs have been frozen and we are now hiring again in the US and Canada. I was being asked to cut a couple people from my team but that is no longer the case.

I think that we are doomed...

As far as I'm concern, I have reached a decision that there is no future for us. We are at least 2 years back in terms of our offering in the new market, our supposed revenue makers are nothing but petty cash, our delivery track and quality is a... —  read more
