Tax question for any Accenture people who were part of the layoffs in August...did you see anything weird with state withholding on your W2? I relocated from VA to NJ in early 2020 and my state withholding switched to NJ when I moved. However (and I never noticed this at the time), all of my earnings, including severance, paid out PTO, and COBRA true up, are shown as taxable income in both states. My tax accountant is scratching his head.

Was laid off earlier and still looking for a job. I’m super interested in fp&a but keep getting sr accountant opportunities. Is it worth to bit the bullet and do the sr acct role for sometime and keeping looking or wait it out? Not trying to get pigeonholed into accounting.

Just left audit for Sr accountant job. Is there an expectation to ask for more work in industry? Feeling no since I’m not “charging hours” or submitting a timesheet but feeling way overpaid for doing almost nothing (not complaining just don’t want to be fired).

I see a lot of people condemning others for being critical or harsh towards Leadership at their agency, and I want to know why? We should be holding our Leaders to the highest standards and not feel bad about it, because they do the same to us and we are the ones being laid off or passed over for promotions/raises when we don’t meet their expectations, not them. Because indirectly when we fail, oftentimes it is more of a failure of Leadership than just one individual.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
