I work at EY as an assurance staff and I just got laid off this morning from the Greenville SC office along with 4 other staff and seniors.
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Anyone remember the 2009 advertising documentary Lemonade, about all the agency ppl who were laid off - and how it freed them to find their real passion?
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
If you are not married or without your own family, would you move back with your parents if you have been laid off? Or would you dip into savings / unemployment to keep the lights on?
Anyone else have a lingering fear that they could be fired at any moment? I’ve received great performance reviews and my partner says I’m doing very well, but I don’t vibe with my colleagues as well as it seems others do.
Even if I am performer at clients I am having issues with job security! Good people around me are getting fired! Man! This is harsh!
I recently got laid off and decided to go freelance. First agency that reaches out to me for freelance work... the one that had just let me go 🤷🏼♀️
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
Hey guys I also got laid off at D. 1 year experience as a BTA>S&A>CCG. Would anybody mind helping a mate out with any referrals? Would love to discuss over DM. Appreciate your help, thank you so much!
What are partners hearing about the need to do furlough/layoffs? Heard of Deloitte and Accenture laid off/furloughs already within certain practice areas
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
Got laid off but found a job. Unfortunately I can’t start for like 2 months. Any ideas on jobs I could do in the meantime? Can’t drive so no Uber. Willing to do minimum wage, anything will help
My coworker, a senior copywriter, was just laid off. They've got tons of experience. I've seen them churn out 5 individual scripts in an hour. Any leads I can throw their way?
Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance). I put in my notice and my Deloitte manager is trying to fight for me. He wants to match the pay they are offering and get me into a group that I like more. I am a ball of anxiety. Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?
What are some atypical interview questions you’ve asked or been asked? The one that caught me most off guard, though an easy answer was, “What would you do if you weren’t doing advertising?”
Has anyone else left the B4 (industry or smaller firm) and felt like they just got out of an abusive relationship and have never been happier or did you realize the grass isn’t greener on the other side?
I know the UK pays less but I am seeing differences of $80-100k for Advisory M at one of the Big 4. Why in the world are salaries so low? And don’t say healthcare. My healthcare is like $140/month for a PPO w low deductible. Plus taxes are less here. Makes the thought of a potential move over there hard :/
1 year and 3 month with two busy season experience, CPA licensed and CFE passed (don’t have two year experience yet), on a visa. What are the chances of me getting in forensic consulting? I’ve been cold calling people around but don’t seem like they are currently hiring.
It’s weird that a white person continues to ask me, a person of color, to take diversity training, right?
Any openings in Product/Program management? I have 3 YOE and tier 1 MBA. Currently serving notice period.
A coworker put me in contact with an agency that I have absolutely have no desire to work for. The company’s recruiter has reached out to set up an interview. Most graceful way to decline?
Anyone at PwC in transfer pricing (NYC office) care to share what the hours are like? Busy season? General culture? :)
Got an interview with Lattice but they don’t allow remote work and I’m not trying to move to NY/SF 😤
True or false: If you ran your classroom the way admin ran the school, you’d get endless complaints from students/parents.
Starting application process to FAANG and other tech firms. For those who have recruited, what’s the end-to-end timeframe? Trying to see when to start the process if my goal is to leave by end of October. I also will be able to get referrals from google, fb, and amazon, not sure if that speeds up the process . Thank you
Really getting smacked with LinkedIn “so proud to announce..” posts this morning. Do you get extra points or something if you parlay your achievements into one post and also post a logo of each brand name?
What level from industry would you need to join MBB as a Principal/AP vs Partner? Most Partners seem to be VP level from large corporates / CSuite from well known startups
I have an offer from One great company that I need to reply to by end of the week and Google had reached out to me after two months of radio silence wanting to move me forward to the last interview round. The offer I got was for a product design position while google wants to potentially hire me as a visual designer… what do I do??? I’m so stressed. I don’t know if I should just accept the offer and then jump ship if Google decides to hire me.
