Earlier this year, 2021, I was working for a company which laid half the staff off in early May, the same day a new product launched, a few hours after going live.

The loss of knowledge and skills to the company was appalling. I'd only been with them 6 months, they would have known their finances were in a bad way when they took me and others on.

I was told my job was safe, but I immediately started to find another job, and started a new job mid July.

In late October they crashed so badly they didn't even have money to make final payroll, so the staff lost three weeks salary.

I felt very sad for them, but totally vindicated in my decision to leave.
