7am conference call. My track record with these has been less than great. My direct manager usually fills me in on these, but this time I set an alarm.
Work has been cleaning house this week. They've laid off a large number of people, to the extent that a long time employee called it "the harshest since 2002". Being a remote employee, it's easy to just miss events such as this. Immediately, I started having flashbacks to 2009 when my then employer cut everyone's pay by 20%, and started laying everyone off left and right. This was shortly before being acquired.
