Enfatico Layoffs – Truth or Enfartico?

Just got this note via an anonymous tipster:

“Hey, any news on Enfatico layoffs? Trying to get details, but one chicks facebook says she just got laid off.”

Anybody got any info on this? Is it really happening?

Lunch-time Update 2-24-09:

“It is really happening. The global enfatico memo went out today to all Enfatico leads. Honestly, this isn’t surprising as they were way over-staffed to begin with.” Source: Anonymous tip form.

Morning Update 2-25-09:

“Layoffs at Enfatico yesterday, supposedly 8% of their workforce worldwide. 20-25 people in Austin.”

  1. A friend’s significant other was just let go in Austin and that snarky first comment said person’s writing all over it.

  2. It’s sad that all of the jackals of the world are standing by to watch the lay offs and make negative comments
    about how Enfatico has failed. These are real people that are losing their jobs, we are all connected. Try not to forget that…it’s time to be kind.

  3. I don’t believe this posts or any of the comments are negative nor talking about the “Enfatico-model” failing. It is always sad when people are laid off, especially in the small network that it is. Regardless, it is still newsworthy, and shows that regardless of how you pitch your business, bad things are happening everywhere.

    I hope we can all recover from the lastest downturn at all the agencies.

  4. Fantastic last point – we’re all hurting. As ad men (and women), it’s time to show our clients the value of advertising in the time of a recession.

  5. Internally, we hear about all of “us” pulling together and marching on. Interesting that a lot of “us” are contractors with no sight of permanent employment. Not sure how leadership can expect all the sacrifice and commitment –without any commitment in return.

    BS. Most of these people don’t even belong in the business. Drunken drug addicts, 1990’s has-beens. Con-men that lied on their resumes or portfolios. It’s people like those at Enfatico that give the business a bad name.

  7. layoffs continue…another around of layoffs in Enfatico Canada…as of today the layoff percentage should be much higher than 8% on a global basis. Wondering what is Enfatico's future?
