Thinking of leaving soon. Job security doesn't look too good.

My morale was terrible until I saw an uplifting post on Linkedin from DW, who was in the HK office at the time and staying at the Peninsula (or was it at a management meeting in Bali, I forget), being so humbled, so proud, to work with so many talented people who collectively make less than her annual bonus. That made my day and I felt so much better.
All above combined plus people don't really care anymore. Each day brings more id–tic situations, complaints from angry clients etc. Allow me to give you a small tip - embrace surrounding chaos, keep the stressing thoughts away - it is not worth it.
Job market is really fine these days, do bare minimum, utilize gained time and saved energy on improvement of your skills, take language classes, calmly search for the new job.
Hmm, let's see - 12% of the workforce either laid off/still to be laid off; lots of institutional knowledge gone out the door; those remaining having to pick up the work of those laid off for no extra pay or recognition; quality of updates/product decreasing due to lack of resources; increased stress caused by lay offs and those left wondering whether they will be next. I'd say morale is excellent and things are looking really positive for 2020.
