the media/entertainment landscape has seen so many changes starting in 2000, picking up steam with each passing year. with all tech changes, mergers, acquisitions, consolidations and on and on and on, you should always be expecting layoffs at this juncture. no matter the media conglomerate or smaller fish primed for acquisition you work for. very rare to spend a full career with ANY of these places, is kind of a thing of past. not just lower, middle/upper management but heads of divisions ect.everyone.
always be searching for next job, never get comfortable. its been the SOP for decades. these companies trade the same people amongst themselves over and over again. unfortunately its like a game of musical chairs, one day you will find yourself without a chair. there is no loyalty whatsoever from these conglomerates, you should do the same in kind. good luck to all, crazy times to be involved in this business.
