I can guarantee once the acquisition is completed heads are going to be on the chopping block. To put it bluntly, make sure to have a contingency plan in case your head is on it. I have friends across all industries that have been laid off and it is not looking good for the economy in terms of jobs being available. Give yourself a minimum of 6 months of savings if possible and lower your spending. I’ve been doing this since the coronavirus hit and I sure as hell don’t want to suffer unnecessarily in case of a layoff.
