Not so woke after all

The layoffs have hit a lot of black executives more than in others. Kareem Daniel, Alicia Schwarz, Paul Richardson and Kim Felix are a few of the higher level ones. But the list keeps going on and on. Even in the disposed workstation spot of HR... —  read more

For some reason this has become somewhat of a taboo subject, but I think at this point it's pretty clear Blackrock is guiding Iger on the direction of the company (not saying it's good or bad, just saying that's the reality of the situation). Since... —  read more 

Can we assume it's over?

I don't remember the last time we had layoffs on a Friday, so I'm assuming this one is no different. I hope this is it for now. It's difficult to focus on work when we have layoffs creating stress for all of us all the time. Let's get it over with... —  read more

Today and tomorrow

Lake Nona campus cancelled

Headlines should read "irreplaceable talent laid off for no reason." So much company loyalty tarnished from people like myself who moved for no reason. Others declined the move and were laid off. Some VERY talented and marquee-caliber artists. Disney... —  read more 

Complete silence

There are no posts or articles about the layoffs in the last two weeks, but it's obviously not over yet. I don't hear rumors either. 2 calendar weeks left from May, so something should happen soon.

Who is getting hit today?

Any chance somebody knows what's left regarding layoffs? Is it just people who the management was not able to notify because they were on sick leave or vacation or will there be more groups targeted? Our group has been spared so far, and instead of... —  read more 

Severance package

Deadline hears that those dismissed were given 60 days notice, however, they must work for a duration of their employment with a week of severance pay. In previous layoffs, those let go were not expected to work and still received pay when given... —  read more 

What's happening?

Do we have any idea how many have been notified so far and which departments were hit? I hate having little to no information on something this important. If the leadership cared about us at all or respected us they would keep us informed, whether... —  read more 

Buckle up!

Walt Disney Co. plans to cut thousands of jobs next week, including about 15% of the staff in its entertainment division, people familiar with the matter said. The cuts will span TV, film, theme parks and corporate positions, and affect every... —  read more 

Finally some good news

I've said it before and I'll say it once again, we are severely understaffed at parks and we need more people. Without them, customer service is suffering. Hearing that Disney plans to hire 13,000 Cast Members is more than welcome and for once the... —  read more
