Whenever I miss an IM by leadership, even by a few mins, and they don’t respond to my response, I worry that I’m going to be fired.
Working in a new industry job for a moth now and they are doing layoffs this week, about 300 total ppl. Large company with 15k+ global employees. Obviously I have not been adding much value this quickly just training and getting to know the team. Making just under 100k if it matters, lower level tech position. How concerned should I be? I’m so anxious about it
If you get laid off/fired for having poor utilization does that negatively impact your chances of getting employment at another company? Like does your background check tell you you were fired?
Why do capable people get laid off/fired? And plenty of mediocre people thrive in corporate environments?
Anyone else get annoyed by these two things: At the conclusion of a town hall on Teams every idiot and their mother thanking the presenters in the meeting chat. Each of these people should be on a layoff short list for blowing up my notifications (yes I know I can mute the meeting). After a meeting is running over the scheduled time people commenting in chat they have to leave for another meeting, just go no one cares.
Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs. With that, I’ve bounced a lot with different industries and have done different roles for a year max. My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)
Shall I disclose reason for leaving a firm during my initial call with a recruiter from said firm, if I was laid off? Are they privy to that information. Ironically being recruited by that same firm
I have a meeting with my HR lead on Friday regarding my termination. What questions should I ask? This is what I have so far... severance pay, health insurance benefits, PTO payout, other roles at the company, and my 401k vesting period. Anything else I should ask/bring up? ￼
Has anyone been fired/terminated for expense related issues or along those lines? Does termination show up on your background check or impact you getting your next job? At a Big 4 firm
Honesy, excited for the day (if i am not let go due to a layoff...), I say sayonara to my company. I have my speech and everything ready for my exit intervie, detailing how I have been treated and I would not hold back
I was unfortunately notified that I am going to be laid off. I get two months of severance. I’m pretty emotional as this was kind of out of nowhere. Does anybody have any tricks to deal with something like this? Financially it couldn’t come at a worse time as my wife is due with our second child in six months. ￼￼￼￼￼ Its been a roller coaster of emotions but I’m confident I’ll get through this. ￼
Fellow consulatants, what have been your experience in job hunting for tech leadership roles over the last 3 months. The market seems dry. Wondering if anyone can share their success stories and approaches taken. BTW I am not laid off but am looking for suitable opps.
can you still get a job if you get fired from your employer? what excuses do you make when you interview?
I was fired at my previous firm and someone who also worked there just joined my team. It was a really awkward time and very toxic. I'm not sure how much this person knows about my sudden "departure". My current team doesn't know anything about my past and I prefer it stays that way. We're going to have to talk sometime, but I'm not sure what to say if they ask what happened. Thoughts? I'm a bad liar. By the way, I'm rocking at my current firm and it's true that some jobs are not the right fit!
My team PIPed me and laid me off. As my severance they gave me time to continue being employed and look for a job (with an end date) without taking me off projects. I already helped out during this period but now it’s almost over and they still keep asking for more ??? Why can’t I get severance and be left alone like a normal person. I know people say don’t burn bridges, but I am so done and don’t want to lift another finger for this trash team.
If you were to be laid off or fired today. How long do you think it take the average person to find a née job?
Those that were laid off, do you voluntarily inform your interviewers that you were laid off? If you did, how did that opportunity turn out?
If you’re being paid out severance over a period of time rather than lump sum, are you still considered to be employed by the company? What is your termination date if you’re still receiving payments?
I scheduled paycheck allocations to amount to the 401k contribution limit ($19.5k) but got laid off in July so now I'm only at ~$10k...is there anything else I can do to max out in this area? (Already doing a personal IRA, just wondering if there are other standard methods I don't know for this situation.)
Hope everyone had a great start of the weekend! Wondering about the people who lost jobs due to covid layoffs. Can you please share 1) if you found something comparable ?2) how long did it take ?
Signed with a boutique firm (~ 70 ppl) and they’re asking me to come in a month prior to my start date for a week long IN PERSON training (paid). Then I find out an old colleague of mine who was fired for incompetence is the only other person at that training. I’m having major doubts about this firm now, any tips on what to do? I’ve already resigned
For those companies / roles with unlimited pto, how does a payout work if you leave and /or are laid off? Receive nothing or some set amount?
Capital one folks: I heard chatter of reorg to your engineering and design teams on another platform (blind) this year. Does Cap1 do this fairly regularly or was this reorg accompanied by layoffs? What is the firm's history with layoffs? Deciding when is the best time to apply, should I wait till next year til the dust settles?
As someone also recently laid off I have decided to take time off and invest locally. I am purchasing the equipment to manufacture N95 masks with pkg’ing. AmazonSeller account is already up but I could use a few more hands and $. Anyone interested? Serve a more meaningful client for a while?
I moved internally and my previous mgr gave negative feedback. Said deliverables needed to be redone, didn't finish tasks, was argumentative, etc. That was not the case. My current mgr and colleagues gave positive feedback. Current mgr said escalation to previous mgr and HR was an option. Is it worthwhile to escalate though? How much weight does the previous mgr's feedback have? Worried this would impact any layoff decisions either way.
Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something
Just got a job offer! After being laid off in October I’ve found a new job paying 20% more base salary + bonus oppty up to 50% over my old annual take home
Need to vent..Started a new role after being laid off this summer. Grateful for a job and a very desirable industry, but annoyed that I didn’t have any leverage to negotiate, so my salary is much lower than before (and role isn’t great either). I want to switch internally but don’t know if I can wait a year. Can’t shake the feeling of wanting to get back to where I was but on the other hand feel slimy for continuing to interview and ashamed at the prospect of being a job hopper. Any advice?
What happens when a project goes south and becomes illegal? What should I do about this and who should I tell? They say I’ll get fired or hurt if I tell anyone and am worried for the safety of the team and others.
I know that a lot of layoffs are happening to smart people, so if anyone is looking for a job and I can help at all, please feel free to DM me
Is anyone just petrified of making a mistake all the time? I only started working in August but I always have fear in the back of my mind that the work steam I’m on will have a mishap or be technically incorrect and then I’ll get like rolled off or fired or something.
Need help. Got laid off earlier and currently m on H1B. So have limited days to find the another gig. I have got another job offer but the recruiter is low balling me knowing the situation. It's 20%cut from the last salary. With this offer it's like I will be starting my career all over again. I do have other interviews in pipeline but nothing sureshot and moreover holidays are coming, so process is getting slow. Don't know what to do ? How to tackle this situation
Found out that I’ll be laid off come 2021. I’ve been interviewing quite a lot recently, but what happens if I don’t find a job by February, my new employer sees my resume as currently working, and checks with my current employer on my resume, and finds out that I’ve been laid off?
Can I be fired for refusing to travel right now? Don’t want to due to covid risk. Raised this concern but was told I might just have to anyways. Can they fire me if I just don’t go? I’ve said very clearly I will not go, and don’t think they’re going to accept that answer.
If someone refuses to work weekends, even if the agency could legitimately make the case the client/ project requires it sometimes, is it possible and fair for them to get fired?
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.
So....which agency is giving out $100 gift cards to all employees? Wondering where these ~30% layoffs might happen after that CSO alluded to them in another post on here.
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
Arguing consistently with manager on approach. Even told her last year workpapers sucked. I'm so fired. Lol 🤣😂🔫 and I'm on student visa And goodbye 5 at senior 1 after pulling an excellent year
Does anyone else think it's in poor taste to throw all out, expensive holiday parties when the entire groupe is experiencing layoffs?
I'm on an engagement and a manager jokingly told a new associate "you're fired" and the associate jokingly said back "f*** you". Do you think that was appropriate? Should that get held against her?
What happens if you’re an associate and you’re fired for “performance” suddenly. You had a performance review the week before and their was no talk of this. How do you perceive this?
LA: after months of layoffs and salary reductions, we are back! Looking to hire a rockstar LA-based Project Manager at our small independent agency. Projects vary from photoshoots to retail to branding/strategy. Looking for mid to senior level. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply! PM me for details.
Got a mysterious invite with a senior partner to "catch-up" on Friday.....thinking D is going to let me go. Anyone know what sort of severance package I can expect? It has been an amazing couple years
Just had a client put a big m&a deal on hold indefinitely. Seeing this as a broader trend- investors selling, freezes on new deals. Worried we’ll see layoffs in our group soon. Anyone else?
In discussions with Coinbase for a privacy role reporting to Associate General Counsel. What’s a good comp to target?
Looking for suggestions! Have off the 22nd - 3rd and I’m looking for a 3-5 day vacation starting on the 26th. Any suggestions? Considering a cruise, or maybe flying to Miami and driving to the keys?
Can exit from Management Consulting to GameStop retail, but request my salary is paid entirely in GameStop stock?
I am between jobs (in NYC) and need health insurance. Anyone that is or was in the same situation, could you please share your choices? I am overwhelmed by the options (and prices!) Many thanks!
I am the only woman and the only POC in my practice group (small group in a large firm) and I am so damn sick of being surrounded by white men 😐
Anyone know if there are laws that prevent you from being furloughed or let go or any significant change to your position within X months of your maternity leave return?
I’m enjoying my current company, the culture, the work etc.The problem is that I am being paid quite a bit under market. What would be the best way to negotiate a higher salary during year end review?
Can poor kids still make it as a pro athlete? Or is money (for classes, camp, gear, health, etc) a huge disparity?
Is it just my company or does no one in industry care about cool decks/sick excel models. Just curious bc I'm in industry now and want to benchmark my experience
Desi fishes on H1B, how does it work if you work for a product or services firm and you are deployed to multiple end customer for very short periods. Short as in say a week or 2 week gig.
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
I’m a pleb who doesn’t have ad free Hulu and all these companies feigning concern with their Covid-19 specific advertising makes me want to blow my brains out
Company asks me to sign a repayment agreement for green card application. I am wondering how much the application fees are just in case...
How many points? Checked in to Westin at 5:30 PM after an exhausting 8 hr fly day...and was told room isn’t ready yet. They said housekeeping just isn’t done yet. I’m Gold Elite if it matters 😭
