Disney lays off 70-80 National Geographic employees


I have several good friends that have been affected by these NG layoffs over the past few years. It sucks. The unforgivable sale of NG to 21rstCenturyFOX set the death spiral in motion. While Disney makes the most sense of any for NG to live under, it has many of the usual corporate merger challenges. Duplicate positions, salary differences, and mission and brand overlaps threaten many NG employees.

A few of the layoffs that occurred this week took some of the most talented people off of the payroll. Some of which are neighbors of mine.

There are no similar companys left in the DC area since Discovery moved out, which will make it difficult for many to find work locally.

It sucks.

Oh, and Happy Labor Day everyone! /As
