Chapter 11. Pink Slip Blues > Trouble in Paradise

Trouble in Paradise

If you haven't lost your job but fear that the pink slip could be just around the corner, here a few signs that trouble may be brewing in your company:

  • Executive management is leaving the company— If the senior executives are leaving, chances are good that the ship's going down.

  • Your company has issued a hiring or overtime freeze— Raises are pushed back and job openings are not being filled.

  • Travel cutbacks— People are being told to stay close to the office and teleconference instead of traveling to meetings and conferences.

  • Expense reductions— No more luncheons or dinners with clients.

  • Support staff is thinning out— This means you are going to have to make do with less.
