In addition to way fewer students in my department, we’ve had both layoffs and natural attrition as people get nervous about where the company is headed.
We have not hired one new person and the workload is unmanageable. My manager goes back and forth asking us to do what we can and then being upset that we can’t get to everything.
I work with a bright team that has submitted possible ways to adjust our workload and maintain effectiveness. No suggestions are ever acceptable.
So we are tasked to work with more students who are less motivated than ever to actually be there. Sad state of affairs.
