Background: Been with two big 4 firms for total of 3 years ( audit senior for one year.) just got laid off 2 weeks ago. I’m also in the army reserve, and about to go on one year mission next month to support Covid. Does this one year gap of not working impact my job searching opportunities once I got back from the deployment?

Best feeling is landing an offer with a 40% raise before layoff, then getting the HR/Partner invite and telling them they could've saved $25k severance because you were about to quit the next day. 😂

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.
