And so the other shoe dropped

with a loud KA-BOOM yesterday. The company laid off massive numbers off sales reps. I have no idea the total number of employees who were laid off. In my little office 5 sales reps were let go. That is 5 out of 16. Also one person that we call a sales overlay was laid off. Nationwide the number must be staggering.

Last Thursday I heard something and saw something else that lead me to believe there were going to some lay offs Monday but I had no idea it was going to be so huge. Primarily the sales reps who were laid off were under performers and maybe should have been gone already.

But when it comes right down to it these employees are people with families. Some of them were friends. It was a sad day and it sucked.
