If you still believe the election was stolen, you should be fired from your job because no client deserves a consultant with such poor critical thinking skills.

Hi all, Finally COVID-19 caught up with me. Not health-wise but career wise. I was laid off and am looking for a job. Ple I was working as an Associate Consultant with ZoomRx in the Business Analysis team. I was handling multiple high velocity end-to-end projects. I have a total experience of around 4 years of which close to 2.5 years are in the consulting space. I intend to continue my career in the same line i.e as a consultant. Please let me know if there are any relevant openings.

What's better if I want to work in tech / product strategy (idk something like that) in the future: an entry-level role in a boutique consultant firm or a ~2YOE ops role in a FAANG? Have a year of experience from a boutique strategy house but was laid off due to COVID.

My partner is an accomplished writer and author with 10+ years in digital media as an editor (lifestyle, food, travel), but they are looking to get into something less volatile after layoffs. Any ideas how to make the pivot into content or marketing? How to position for exit ops when kind of senior but in a new role? I’m a life science consultant so coming up short on ideas.

NYC fish! Need some advice. I recently got laid off at my firm but am thankfully making it to the final rounds of another great firm. The only catch is that they're no longer hiring for the NYC office, only Philly and Princeton. Any thoughts or advice? The firm is tentatively staying remote until April but I think that could change given that cases are rising. Sincerely, a stressy depressy consultant

On every objective measure, I know I’m doing really well. Yet somehow, this job makes me feel like I’m never doing enough, never good enough, never will get promoted, and will inevitably get fired. Anyone else feel this way? It sure didn’t feel this way when I made 30% less money and worked 30% less hours in industry before becoming a consultant.

Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.

Offered role with client for same amount of money but one level higher. Trying to figure out if Worth taking it. It’s my dream role but the pay is the same ( consultant to manager role). Reasons to leave D, work life balance, layoffs scare me, current client has good culture/ work to life balance is 9-5. Is it common to get offers from clients? If so maybe I can wait and get better offer.

Is it ethical to layoff a consultant by using the counsel to leave mechanism over the standard redundancy process? Theres less notice period and no compensation for such a case. Furthermore the consultant was previously good standing or at least average. Do we have any legislation to protect us against such actions?

Can someone explain the forced PTO? I only have 2 years in consulting, came from industry. It’s crazy to me because I’ve never worked at an industry company that would do this. If these firms plan on laying off anyway due to slow work, shouldn’t they just do it? Work isn’t going to magically appear in the 1-2 weeks of FUTURE time they want us to take off. Is this a way to just avoid paying full severances + PTO/sick or whatever else would be due to the laid off employee? What am I missing?
