Employees are mostly working from home, but the feeling is still there that the workforce has been cut in a big way.
The fallout from yesterday’s cuts was also felt throughout the company. It was described as a feeling of “shock” and those who were still there had “survivor’s guilt.”
Today, they were acclimating themselves to the new normal of so much of the company being on furlough or let go. One person felt at least 40% of the company was gone today vs. yesterday and I’ve had four different people mention having some form of “survivor’s guilt” over friends and co-workers being gone while they remained.
The live event division was “hit especially hard” as they aren’t running live events, and who know when they will? The digital area of the company also suffered “deep cuts.”
Lay-offs were across every division of the company leaving everyone knowing somebody who lost their job. It was said that those who were furloughed hope to be back by July.
