Notes

  • 16:45 Reasons, patterns, signals of a layoff.
    • news.shopify.com: We bet that the channel mix - the share of dollars that travel through ecommerce rather than physical retail - would permanently leap ahead by 5 or even 10 years. It’s now clear that bet didn’t pay off.
    • blog.google: Ensure that our people and roles are aligned with our highest priorities as a company.

  • 25:40 Cash reserve != lower layoff probability
  • 27:00 Prioritize growth when money is cheap; prioritize “rule of 40” in today’s world.

17:10 裁员理由
00:05 哦,记得前一阵那个北邮渣男,其夫妇就是一个Facebook,一个Google,十余年积累了数千万美元的家产,随着妻子的病逝,出来那么多是是非非。隔在大洋彼岸,我们也不知女孩父母是否委屈还是过界
