Thread regarding Activision Blizzard layoffs

So much for my dream job

I haven't been with Blizzard for a full year yet, and the way things are looking right now I won't be here long enough to see my first anniversary. I was so happy to land this job - I left a really good position in another company for it. And now it looks like soon I'll be unemployed.

Thanks Blizz, thanks Activision. Really great start of the year for me.

I disagree. Blizzard laid off approximately 600 employees about 8 years ago. It served a similar purpose. While it is heartbreaking to be among the ones who were let go Tuesday, the purpose is too allow the company to do its best moving forward.

The grass is always greener on the other side, so someone leaves a "good" position to take a risk. Security is where it is at these days. The game ifs to work long enough at a high enough salary so that you can secure your future. Unfortunately, only older employees seem to understand this, and most only after it is too late.

You should have known better, frankly even before Morhaime left things started to go south and if you've been paying attention to anything you'd see that they are cutting costs deep and wide - this aint gonna change going forward and it's pointless to lament about things that are gone. the world is changing indeed.
