My company laid off lots of employees today following last week's acquisition by another company. I am feeling very lucky to still be employed, but am sad to see the departure of colleagues I admire and with whom I have enjoyed working. There will be many voids for the remaining staff to fill.
Days like this are always unsettling. Most people seem to be taking it in stride, though it has been challenging to get any real work done.
I wish the best of luck to those who are parting ways with the company. You will be missed.
