I just finished working on a big purchase with a vendor and my Director told me to hold off for a couple weeks because the higher ups are working on restructuring the company.

Sorry you're going through this turmoil.  It's TOUGH just waiting...and wondering.  I'm sort of in the same boat....knowing it's going to happen but unsure when.  Hopefully if they DO let folks go there will be nice severance.  Good luck and keep us posted.

My dh is daily praying his company gets bought so he can get a new job.  He can't leave because he has a lot invested if they sell.   But daily he wonders how much longer they are going to be able to keep going if things don't pick up.

At least you are in Houston, and there are a lot more jobs here than other places.  

I just dread the whole process though.  It seems like all the job offers my dh get, while great, are out of the country.  And I would rather stay here.  But we will go where we have to.

@BooBear: nah, I gonna join the sponges of our nation for awhile.

I'll probably divorce the wife, so she can get food stamps, free daycare, free phone, and file head of household.
I'll collect unemployment till it runs out. I'll also keep the house in my name and rent it to the wife under section 8.

Things should be pretty good, might even get me a new Escalade

@mm4731:  You could always talk to @Ray about being a "pump mechanic".  Just the title alone is worth something for you!

Well paranoia has hit a boiling point. Managers are starting to empty files from their computers and rumors are starting like wild fires

Companies should just come clean and say yep, we have layoff's coming.  Then people could prepare as soon as possible.

@Fallon:

Exactly. If they expect employees to give a two week notice then they should do the same
