With all the upheaval in the media industry as of late, companies are being forced to slim down and stretch further. Working at a leaner organization isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes there are signs that your talents would be better off elsewhere. How can you tell that the company is really in trouble, and not just experiencing some ups and downs that go along with the industry?
“If you’re worried about layoffs, it’s a good idea to begin on an exit strategy,” advised veteran HR consultant Mary Hladio in Mediabistro’s latest AvantGuild feature. If you see signs that the company is in trouble, like multiple restructures or missed financial projections, it might be a good idea to look for greener pastures.
