And so we received letters last week.... 'no pay reviews for 6 months'. Pisser! Even my company is trying to cite financial concerns as being justification for stiffing the working man!
Then this week we are all summoned to a 10am meeting.
It seems nervous bankers = no credit = no finance for projects = projects on hold = no need for architecture services = no need for architects.
The building boom in the USA occurred during the bleak 1930s..... but architecture always cops it early when there are dire financial straits.
Meh.... its the old mind fuck, to make us grateful we still have jobs. They say some people need to be canned.... it'll never happen.
Today.... tearful colleagues and e-mails sent with an upbeat but shell shocked air to them.
Will Paolo make the cut?
For y'all, keep your heads down and try to look busy! Arse kissing (or ass if you prefer) will get you no where! If you are inclined to forward thinking, make the buzzword on which to dwell be 'adaptable'.
jack of all trades, master of none.
