We Hear: Another Handful Out at the Frogpond

Granted, it has been about a month or so since we last covered StrawberryFrog-related matters, but now a few sources are telling us that there were another round of layoffs at the New York office. We’ve been told that a handful of folks were cut but we’re still trying to ascertain which departments were affected. One spy weighs in: “…At least 4 + people Including several of the few people left who have worked there longer than six months. After the layoff they brought remaining staff into a room and promised that they were ‘the A-level talent. there will be no more layoffs.’ (which was the same thing they said when they did their first round of layoffs six months ago).”

We’re looking into the matter and will try to get you more specific info/names if possible.
