HR Layoffs

A handful of layoffs in HR. No management... of course. I thought private equity was supposed to be ruthless; it doesn't seem much has changed since the acquisition. Still the same leadership mentality... belly up to the BAR, guys.

All of the so-called leaders are nothing more than bullies who hide behind their emails. Confront them and watch them cower and hide. You all deserve better than the losers you have running that place. Just remember, they’re getting paid. You’re not. —  read more
