Do you have compassion for poor performers being laid off? If so, why?

My firm sent out an email regarding upcoming layoffs. They stressed that they will work towards creating gender equality in each division in this restructuring. My team is currently 75% male 😰

Just got laid off. Client asked me to start a LLC and she will pay me directly. Project is 2.5x my base salary. Seems like no brainer? What am I missing?

Good friend of mine was just fired for expense fraud. Not sure exactly what he did but it was something around his flight. He didn't think the company would call the airline to verify receipt details

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 was let go with no prior indications that I will be laid off. Good utilization solid engagement feedback. HR set up a call to tell me this. When I asked to counselor he couldn’t answer my questions

Post your unpopular opinion. I’ll start: Layoffs are good for firms. It keeps the top-performers, aligns reality with company’s expectations, and as a result, brings better work.

If you are worried or anxious about potentially losing your job, then hopefully the perspective I’m sharing will help. My perspective (in the comments) is based on having survived two painful layoffs in my career.

I have a modeling test on Wednesday with a solar farm developer. On the phone interview that proceeded this, the CFO mentioned that these pro forma solar farm models are more nuanced than most. He mentioned bonus depreciation and tax credits among other things. Are there any good resources that I can use to learn about solar farm/renewable energy modeling? Also any general tips or things I should be aware of. If anyone could share a model too that would be awesome! Thanks for the help.

Own a townhouse currently, but venturing into investment property for the first time. Are condos a good idea in Jersey city, Hoboken area? Targeting the ones without the horrendous HOA obviously. Also hearing from the realtor that the play has to be that you say it’s your 2nd home to use on weekends or something like that so you don’t end up with higher down or high interest rates that are associated with a typical investment prop from lender standpoint. Curious to know how this works.
