Trust your gut in these situations. Good luck with the job search.

This is the struggle- and they are demanding we go back in the office all at the same time despite the fact that the space they've allocated to us will seat only 70% of us. They are moving us to a new space which triples my commute. It's a nightmare. But is it a scary time to change companies if layoffs are looming?

Yeah, I definitely learned ^^^this lesson at my first company out of teaching. Didn't listen to my gut and got blind sided a month later. At my last company, I had the same feeling and thankfully landed a job 3mo before the whole team I was on go the ax.

There's a buzz about it among the staff - particularly those of us in the US - we know we're more expensive. Some people are waiting to see how this quarter goes - not me. I've started slacking at my job so I can focus on applying.

Yeah, I've def thought about this too but my company (a start up) laid off 9 people (11% of headcount) in December. Anyone who's paying attention can see, at least at my company, that new business is not coming in. We haven't had a new paying client in a few months so staying is also the same risk as changing jobs.

Our conspiracy theory is that they are making our work life so miserable that a bunch of people leave. We've lost 4 in my dept (of 240) since they announced return to office but bonuses are end of February and smart people don't leave before that. But we expect there will be a mass exodus after bonus payouts. Maybe they'll relax the return to office thing then.

I think I’ve got a fatal attraction on my hands.

Got 3 interviews this week - one is a 3rd round. Other 2 are screening calls. Waiting on 2 more companies to confirm day/time as well. Keeping my fingers crossed!
