There was a recent Paramount layoff and over 100 employees are now without jobs. On Oct. 1, Deadline reported that a memo was issued on the lot that made 110 people without a job. This was very expected and all of the employees were told this morning about the news.
The memo that went out to staff said that change is always hard. The employees that lost their jobs are in Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, International Home Media Distribution, Legal and Marketing. It is hard for anyone to hear they have lost their job even when they knew some employees would be cut sometime this year.
Paramount has had huge success with their last few movies. "World War Z" with Brad Pitt was one of their movies and it was a great one with huge sales. At this time, there is no word if more layoffs will happen or if they are coming for other studios as well. Were you affected by the Paramount layoff? Sound off in the comments.
