DDB Layoffs


Rumor has it that DDB Chicago is going through some lay offs today, which just sucks. Layoffs always just suck. Not sure how many or from what departments. Wonder if the next “Thought From Bob Scarpelli ” email will cover this, but… what do you even say?

The lay off thing is especially tricky, because the industry (unless you are on the interactive) is slow in regards to hiring these days. Plus, you know that those over 40 with the most experience, the highest paychecks and the greatest risk (retirement, kids, etc.) see the swing of the axe first. In ten years or so, that could be you or me or it’s you right now. Best of luck to everyone who got caught out today.
