Whew.

I survived round 2 of the layoffs today...but one of our technicians didn't :cry:.

Last round (about a month ago), management went for marketing staff. Their (rightly justified) reasoning was that we can't market ourselves out of this mess, so we don't need marketers now.

This time, they targeted more technical staff...yikes! It was as if I felt a bullet whiz by my head.

Whew. Hope this all turns around soon...

Hang in there. You may be forced to use some Dilbert tactics to destroy your the competition.

I just can't imagine the anxiety in the workplace of today. Lots of bullet-dodging. I suppose Kevlar business suits don't help.

That's exactly right, Chi. There's a lot of tension in the workplace these days...these are difficult times.

Oh...and all (surviving) employees got a 10% pay cut today. Sigh.

Thanks, everyone.

We got a 20% pay cut and twice as much work. There is just no way we can take on this extra workload, it is just not possible. When management told us what is about to be dumped on us, they avoided eye contact, looked at the floor and kept shuffling their feet. They know it's a crock.

Congratulations Lisa. I'm sure you are in the top of the keepers list. Times will get better eventually, it always did.
