Well, now what?

Any predictions on when things are going down? How long before the merger is announced? Or do you think there's still a chance it'll fall through?

What is the best alternative to Viacom?

I'm done being a sitting duck and just waiting to be laid off every day. I've updated my resume, and I'm ready to start searching for an option to leave on my own. I'm just not sure where to start, to be honest. All the companies in our field seem to... —  read more
