Hi! I’m looking to move into management consulting, preferably one of the big 3. I’m currently an experienced audit manager at EY. Are those firms doing layoffs/hiring freezes? Any insight would be appreciated!
Yes or no question - Do you know or know of anyone who got fired or counseled out of the firm for claiming bankruptcy?
Hearing talks of layoffs in federal today. Anyone else hearing this? May be just a coincidence.
Bad look for the management consultant who started this - https://www.google.com/amp/s/nymag.com/intelligencer/amp/2020/06/why-did-the-washington-post-get-this-woman-fired.html
Just got fired. Not surprised and kind of relieved but ego is bruised. Anyone got any stories of when they got fired/laid off and it turned out for the better?
Anyone know how deep PwC is going with the layoffs in August? I know it was 10-15% for most groups in June so just wondering if it will be smaller since they just went so deep.
Got fired on Friday. Woke up this morning and started getting ready for work...oh yeah.
Got a mysterious invite with a senior director to "catch-up" on Friday.....thinking they're going to let me go. Anyone know what sort of severance package I can expect? It's been an amazing 2 yrs
Layoffs still going on in Deloitte, PWC or KPMG?
Craziest stories about people getting fired?
How are things going at ATK these days? I remember there were conversations of layoffs etc last year
Ah the great Ad Agency Bubble, your agency is doing great, growing exponentially then boom, clients are lost, there are layoffs and there are no raises/promotions for a year. What do you do jump ship?
I’m struggling at work with illness. The issue is I don’t want to get fired, and I know FMLA only applies to people who’ve been at their firm at least a year. Is there anything those of us who have under a year can do to take a leave without potentially being fired over it?
Serious question: has W+K ever had layoffs in the last decade or so? I don’t think I’ve ever heard about it if so.
I recently accepted a new role after being laid off. I feel really blessed to have found a job in this climate. My new boss is wonderful! However, the role itself isn’t in the direction I want to go. I’m struggling with feeling guilty for continuing to job search. Any advice on staying somewhere for a good boss vs. switching jobs so soon?
Just got an email from a partner asking to discuss the results of my CRT in the office tomorrow. I have high utilization but that doesn't seem to mean much. Am I being laid off?
The client said good things about me to my manager 🤗
I’m a recent grad and am starting my first job as a federal consultant in a couple months. Can anybody recommend some good books to read that relate to federal consulting? Or consulting in general?

I am an ESL and I feel like I am always struggling to communicate effectively. Any recommendations on books and courses to improve my verbal communication skills??
Okay so I recently got into Booth off the waitlist (so so stoked, my first choice) with no scholarship but have accepted an offer to Tuck with a 30k scholarship. Post MBA goals are MBB. Leaning hard on Booth but is there any chance they’d swing a scholarship at this point in the game?
Ladies did any of you experience that being pregnant would affect your promotion chances? I’m planning to get pregnant and hope to get promoted this or next year. Perhaps I should wait to get pregnant by summer next year so I’m safe in terms of promotions? Any thoughts?
Is it just my firm? I work at a boutique labor law/insurance defense firm. The partners expect me to cut my hour to their expectations, and then they cut even more. The real amount of time I put in ends up cut to 1/4 to 1/3 the total Example: billed 13hrs based on a “soft” formula for 2k page doc review. Partner slashed it to 4.4hrs. I can’t keep up with the min billable requirement. Am I just not cut out for this or is this just a poor billable system? I’m tired of being reprimanded for this
Resume question. Do you include contract work on your resume or not if you have substantial reputable firm experience since (e.g. 5-6 years with the same firm)? Is having it in there better than the gap (~7 month gap) after law school? Just for full details, I was set to work at a small practice (~2 senior attorneys) and they rescinded due to losing a major client while I was studying for the bar in mid July) Thanks in advance for any advice!

Oh MCO, how I hate you so.
Been with the firm for 10 years. Had a good year. Got promoted to SM. Good bonus. Yet, not feeling motivated. I’m fighting myself and the emptiness is draining. What’s wrong with me? Please help!
What is the normal salary range and experience level for the Consultant and Senior Consultant designations in Capgemini?
What are some utilization (billing hours) targets out there for roles with direct reports? If lower than individual contributors, do staffing levels reflect this? I.e. target is 65% billable, but still staffed at 40+ hours
Does anyone know if we can reimburse expenses for items listed in Wageworks while on maternity? I know we cannot expense phone/internet/ commuter benefit as I am not actively doing work. However, for other items that fall under wage works reimbursement, I couldn’t find anything in writing yet.
Never traveled to Europe and round like to do my best to avoid jet lag. Flight departs around 6pm est and arrives at 8:10am. Seems to me if I can manage to fall asleep soon after take off I should be good to go when I arrive. But I imagine it may be hard to sleep in economy. And if I’m trying to sleep then how do I make sure I’m staying hydrated. 😫
