Serta Simmons (SSB) Slashes 160+ Jobs

Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB) announced the elimination of more than 160 jobs.

Is this mattress major in a death spiral, or will the restructuring lead to a healthy company? 

In this episode, Dos Marcos talk about Quinn’s blog post from 2014 where he outlines the reasons an industry outsider won’t make it in the mattress business.

Did Michael Traub ignore that cautionary advice, or has the culture clash from combining Serta and Simmons been too much to correct?

To anyone who lost a job at SSB, the crew from Dos Marcos wishes you all the best in your transition. If there’s anything we can do to help, please send us a message.
