I think some of the biggest mistakes that people make is:
- expect a company to bend to their will
- expect a company to stay the same
They often forget about option 3 which is to move on. With every single layoff there is a talent vacuum that needs to be filled. Seek out those vacuums in other companies. Right now in light of every company laying off. There’s not much panic when it comes to hiring people. When the recession is over there will be a hiring spree across the board. Tow the company line right now and make your move then.
