    Sorry, yeah. I mean that makes sense, I guess I was reading the earlier comment as if this was a surprise to their entire team out of nowhere with the announcement, I messed up my phrasing on that. And probably my understanding of the comment to begin with.

      S'all good!

      I mean whether or not many details were given in the post, the secrecy does makes sense - I'm not sure many other businesses would go about this any differently. I just feel really badly for their team.

        Based on the hundreds if not thousands of job offers being thrown at them right now everywhere they (and I) look, I don't haha.

          Switching jobs sucks. Yeah most of them will probably get a job in a relatively short amount of time. That still doesn't mean that this all sucks for them. There's nothing good that can come of this for employees.

            "There's nothing good that can come of this for employees."

            Except maybe a better job or new opportunity or the chance to explore something else?

            Getting laid off sucks. I got laid off and spent 5 months applying to over 500 jobs before I finally managed to find one via a friend of a friend. It certainly doesn't appear to be the case here, as there are hundreds of jobs being targeted at the T+L folks getting laid off.

            Switching jobs doesn't always suck. Sometimes it does. Sometimes it's awesome. Being laid off was one of the best things that's happened in my life and maybe it'll be the same for some of them.
