Even with things picking up, I can't relax. If layoff-related PTSD was a thing, I'd say I have it.

worst of all is that the company does not know how to communicate and prepare employees for layoffs. on the business side of course they won’t and can’t communicate it because productivity would drop. the results as positive as they may seem at the moment are not so good, especially in the EMEA region. expedia has been losing market share there for years and b.com is getting stronger even during this pandemic time.
I can see on linkedin a lot of talent has already left the EG and some have even changed the industry. my advice is not to wait until they get rid of you but to start looking for a job in a more stable industry because the covid pandemic will last for a few more years.
the worst that can happen to you is that in the middle of winter you lose your job and income for a couple of months.
EG is (was) really a great company but the time has come as tourism and everything related to it is very shaky.
Expedia will probably do another round of layoffs. They always do. So for them not to do layoffs, it will mean something is amiss.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
