Our Best to Time Inc. Staffers

Our best wishes to the folks at Time Inc., who are enduring a really terrible and sustained day of major layoffs, which is at least maybe a small relief after suffering through endless waiting, knowing this was coming for weeks. Hmm. Nope. Actually, probably not. If you have a Time Inc. friend, buy them a drink today.

Today's hideousness was brought to you by the fine folks at McKinsey & Company, and the management team of Time Inc.

Looks like they're 11 for 11 in the Caucasian category.

So much for me getting a job at Pathfinder.

Today's hideousness was actually probably brought to you by a growing sense of being entitled to free writing.

@camelface Don't forget the alternate sponsor, the conventional wisdom that this whole internet fad would be over by next month at the latest, so we don't really see any point in asking more than a couple of thousand-word essays a month from that guy in the corner office with the $200K annual salary and expense account. I mean, it's not like the world has changed in any significant way since 1978, so who are we do go rocking the boat?

Looks like that media concern is running out of "TIME" (sorry, so sorry)

@petejayhawk No apologies necessary. That ship's sinking, someone has to warn 'er.

I've worked in and around management consulting for 15 years and wish I could give an example of a McKinsey-ite who wasn't an arrogant dickhead. Alas…

@Bittersweet I worked at both Time Inc. and Bain & Company and this just breaks my heart/makes me so glad I will never work for a management consulting firm again. I literally chose to work with lawyers after leaving Bain, which should tell you everything.

What is management consulting, anyway? This is a serious question because if someone asked me what it was, I wouldn't have an answer.

The business of cutting down trees, marking them with ink, and sending them through the US Mail — apparently it ain't what it used to be. Damn you McKinsey & Company!
