My day has arrived. Today, I, a Tech Advisory Consultant, was smacked by a surprise afternoon layoff call. I was assured my PA review was nowhere near bottom 5%, but the machine of Accenture has inscrutable ways of determining High Performance.

Hello everyone, first post ever and I have a question for you. I left my previous job for a startup. I really enjoy what I do, but the lack of international perspective makes me want to look for something else as my goal has always been to work in many different countries.

It’s been almost a year and I am wondering if leaving a company after a year would eventually be perceived as a deal breaker for recruiters. I know it will mostly depends on my ability to sell myself.

What do you think?

How does your firm deal with underperforming associates? We are crazy busy but have a couple first-years on vacation, 50-100 hours per month, and thinking we are a "lifestyle" firm. I don't want to just fire them, at least not yet, but I want to see a change. How many second chances do you give? How many months under budget?

I need your help, y'all!

A female coworker has become super passive aggressive. I don't work with her often, she's in a different business unit, but we have to collaborate sometimes.

I can deal with her personally, kill them with kindness. However, she texted my direct report something aggressive, untrue, and frankly super unprofessional about me. He didn't feel comfortable sending me a screenshot, but he read it to me. He doesn't want it to come out that he told me.
What would you do?
