To quote the great Johnny Rotten during the Sex Pistols’ original finale, “ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” Well, yes we have. After chasing this shit for days on end, the news has slipped through the cracks. Eh, whatever, bring on the long weekend and here’s a statement. Nothing more to add.
“As many people in our industry know, Microsoft moved to a roster agency model back in November and on Monday announced that they’ll be conducting a review of all their agencies. Unfortunately these decisions have put us in the position where a staff reduction is necessary. Today we’ll be releasing approximately 10% of our staff across our US offices. While these cuts won’t in any way diminish our ability to serve our current accounts nor go after new opportunities, this is an incredibly difficult decision to make as it affects our colleagues who have made many contributions to CP+B over the years. We will do all we can to help them transition to new opportunities and hope that with new business growth, many of them will be back with us soon. “
