My first month on the job at Culture Trip I witnessed my first cull on the editorial team, saw them packing up their stuff in tearful shock and leaving an entire bank of empty desks within a 30 minute window. Anxiously I asked my team mates if our jobs were safe and they said 'oh don't worry, they do this all the time.' - so often in fact that they call them Red Weddings, and they happen around March/April every year. Not long after this particular cull, during a company meeting we were warned of some 'nasty articles' that were about to be published and expose Culture Trip's CEO for who he really was and give us the DL on a toxic work culture, bullying from the top down, and something about post it notes... In order to save their dented ego and adopt the persona of BE A GREAT COMPANY TO WORK FOR, Culture Trip went through an intense period of contemplation last year to attempt to win round its jaded workforce. They unveiled new core values on beautifully designed postcards, announced staff networks for minorities in the workplace (but refused to allow them the chance to hold the company accountable). They mapped out career projections for each employee, hired a woman into the C-suite (SHOCK) and patted themselves on the back for it by announcing it on Linkedin. We were forced through 2 staff surveys in an attempt to regain our trust and monitor progress. In the background however they were forcing new recruits to write phoney glassdoor reviews, messed us around with our monthly pay date, plastered over gaping wounds with pizza parties and put us through awkward ask me anythings with our CEO that neither he nor us really wanted to take part in. Then this year rumours started up again in February that the next red wedding was imminent, saying the company wouldn't survive 2020 because it was broke - and this was before coronavirus was a threat to our lives and livelihoods. Considering it had been drummed into me during my recruitment that the company had received seed investment of over 100 million pounds, my Carrie Bradshaw moment consisted of - I couldn't help but wonder, what the hell did they do with all that money? The foolish spending of a mega rich CEO on a power trip might explain some of the financial deficit - Donating company funds to the Save Notre Dame appeal, throwing an obscene amount of money at our US SXSW launch which belly flopped into failure and then firing those who worked weeks of overtime to pull it off, opening an office with a Mayfair postcode on a whim and hiring c-suite employees on ridiculous salaries could point us in the right direction. In February I was told on the grapevine that content was going to be hit hard despite the fact that our targets were increasing by over 100% month on month in 2020. Rumours of illustration and animation being wiped out completely and our commissioning editors being replaced by automated programs were all things that I had heard. However with a strong and supportive message from our CEO and HR department about 'standing together' through coronavirus gave me a false sense of security that Culture Trip actually did care about its employees through this difficult time. We were reactive, changing our content, publishing news-worthy articles to support our users through the crisis and keeping them inspired from home. Then at the end of March, with no prior warning during our regular company meeting, the bomb dropped from Kris's mouth that for some of us, we may never meet again, and best of luck for the future. Within the hour nearly our entire New York Office was wiped out with 2 weeks severance, and immediately afterwards I learned that I had a target on my back. I'm now being dragged through a frustrating period of collective consultation with over 100 other colleagues 'due to coronavirus'. Some 'safe' colleagues have been furloughed secretly but it wasn't an option for us, no one knows why but It has now been half-way admitted from the horses mouth that Culture Trip wants to appear leaner to investors. The content team are being whipped into finishing everything we've been working on before the end of May so they can sell it to clients and make money. Teams which have almost been wiped out completely have been nominated for awards and staff are being bombarded with requests by managers to 'Vote for Culture Trip! Well done guys!' when we all know that nearly everyone who worked on those projects is about to lose their job. Kick in the teeth much? Read the room guys...
