More Layoffs at Kodak

by admin on February 26, 2011

Woke up to this missive in my inbox this snowy Saturday morning:

"67 APPS/FPS have been notified by Jeanne DeRose (Former TSS turned BOSS) that Kodak needs to make drastic cuts. Those that have been chosen to leave, will be notified on Monday the [February] 28th by their manager at 9am and a package will follow by 12 noon."

Well gees, I struggled a little bit about whether I should post this or not. I mean, if you're one of the affected, I just ruined your weekend.

"They would not answer any relative questions the APPs had so I suspect this is going to be HUGE"

Ah well, all I can say is that there is definitely life after a layoff. You can trust me on that 100%.

OMG, isn’t this over yet? Nope. Now a 40% cut to the proofing team. Got a nice lunch with Dr. Kent Brothers though…

We have a theory about corporate success. Management success means cutting the costs of an R&D group, showing a rise in revenue vs. cost in the short term, and then getting promoted quickly enough that the future drop in revenue is not seen to be your fault.
