How two heads of Pixar saved their employees from layoffs

0

Here’s your morning feel-good story. So snuggle up next to your computer, sip that delicious coffee of yours, and read away. Further proving that Pixar is an infinitely better place to work than wherever it is you work, a recent article by the Harvard Business Review detailed how Pixar CEOs saved their employees from layoffs. As told by 25 year veteran Craig Good, the article details the company’s rough beginning as a division of LucasFilm, and how a majority of staff were going to be laid off. I won’t spoil what happens, but I will say that what happens is so Pixar. Â

It just fills my heart with joy hearing about all of these “Pixar rules” stories. As someone who has tried several times to land a position at Pixar, I’m only more determined to work there. That’s to say, I’m not complaining about my job here at Flixist. I just… -sigh-

Please don’t fire me.
