Got laid off on Friday and received another job offer today. Guess it’s true when one door closes another opens. I feel lucky
I do not trust this… this company was the same to layoff thousands during the pandemic. What’s not to say they won’t lay-off thousands during a recession? I think it’s time to find a new job…
So I know of a situation where a colleague is a woman of color who is seven months pregnant. Her manager just put in for her to be fired citing performance issues literally since the pandemic. She’s endured chemo and intense treatment during her pregnancy but was informed her circumstances were irrelevant to performance. She was called scatterbrained and distracted by her team leadership. Advice for her or someone who cares?
This company wins a lot of diversity awards.
Is Accenture doing recession layoff now???
To all management consultants (MBB, Big4, boutiques), how do you see the outlook for the consulting sector in the near term (~1 year)? Layoffs IB style? Or consistent business activity?
I'm a big four associate who was just fired by HR and a partner. I've only been at the company a few months and got a good review. HR said "the partners and I have discussed" without explanation. What can I do about this? They have no evidence of poor performance, and my team loves me. What's next? If I'm fired, can I apply for unemployment? I'm unsure what to think or do.
I heard PwC is also firing people in some areas and not calling it layoffs. KPMG when are you next?
Which consulting firm will get hit the hardest next year with all of these layoffs happening?
Compass with more layoffs this week. Heard it’s 30% of the company, could’ve seen this one coming
Any cool Accenture perks as a new hire? Like, phone, etc.? Coming in as L7. And yes, I know. “Layoffs are coming.”
Was about to get staffed on an engagement for something I was passionate about and HR blocked it by telling the manager saying they will contact me directly. Is it a layoff?
Is strategy role at public utilities companies worth a try? What’s the outlook for this industry? Apparently ESG is the trend but heard there has been many layoffs.
Got laid off today by Accenture as a Consultant. It was cited as a termination without cause and I’ll receive a small amount of severance. I am seeking help to find a new job! Open to consulting roles, as well as industry roles around strategy/bizops. I am based in Canada, but also open to any remote jobs (US/worldwide/etc.) I’m feeling very lost right now. Any help during this time would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
Accenture layoffs starting?
Seeing a lot of layoff threads. Is it from economic headwinds leading to reforcasts or timing based on annual review cycles ?
Received severance offer - they give me 30 days to sign. Is there any reason to hold and not sign?
What is normal severance if your laid off?
There are Alphas in consulting then there are Betas In consulting. Betas usually try to get the Alphas fired.
Does anyone ever feel like everyone around you at work is out to get you and plotting to get you fired? Feels like all my coworkers have ulterior motives even when they’re being incredibly kind to me at a surface level and checking in on me
I have 18 months of savings available if I got laid off. If you were me, how much time would you give yourself to find a new job?
Got laid off today.. industry role and sole reason is flight risk. Manager told me I’m a top performer but they’re worried I’m looking to leave…
No PIP, no negative feedback received, no performance improvement plan. I was fired out of the blue on vacation on a 3 minute video call for “performance” reason. Don’t be loyal to any company. As soon as you get a better opportunity, LEAVE.
Laid off by L.E.K. as a consultant. It was a humbling experience. I feel sort of stuck right now. What should I be thinking about in terms of next steps? If I want to give consulting another go, do I have a chance at another practice?
Need some encouragement. Left consulting a few months ago to go to a startup. Took a major pay cut, only to be included in some layoffs last month. I’ve been applying for jobs well within or below my expertise/leveling and can’t even get a call back. But I’m in the offer stage for another Startup, I don’t even want to entertain the offer because of this experience at a startup.
Anybody heard Wipro firing its D1 partners left right and centre (irrespective of whether they are over or under achievers) to cut costs… and the most astonishing part is these people are being fired at 1 or 2 day’s notice, even in developed countries like Australia !!!
I just got laid off
Somebody say layoffs?
y’all heard about them layoffs??? 👀
It really is humorous now. When I tried to get in consulting last year around this time, I was told I already missed the window because the campus hire classes were already picked. Waited till January and was told again, I missed the window because I should have done it when the campus hires were already in so the firms knew pipeline. Waited again till about May and was told slow down bc most firms are in their last quarter, better luck at beginning of fiscal year. And now, apparently layoffs. 🤷🏽♀️
Got a weird meeting request from creative manager and HR entitled “team rating mini master.” No clue what that means, but in a sea of recent layoffs/ 45 day notices, I’m expecting the worst. Thoughts?
Layoffs again this week at 72LA. A few weeks ago at MAL. Is the LA market ok or is it just hitting big agencies?
Is anyone here constantly worried about getting laid off? I didn’t get moved to my next level (SA1 > SA2 > SA3 before manager) last review cycle (I was 6 months in the firm). Now I’m always constantly worried I’m going to get laid off. Overall get along w people at my level up to manager, but cannot get along with most partners and some directors. I’ve had good reviews from the former, and mixed reviews from the latter.
Wondering if this is anxiety or intuition.
I’m at an agency that just went through several rounds of layoffs. It often seems like staff have no recourse when the layoffs hit. How could a staff union assist in that situation?
I'm feeling a lot of anger towards my manager (now he's acting normal but there were moments where he was condescending/dismissive/mocked my and others work/arrogant/said stuff was "wrong" constantly/belittling the difficulty of tasks etc. in the past project).
Maybe it is "standard chewing out" but it bothered me a lot. So much that I find myself still getting all fired up inside thinking about it...
Idk how to let go of this :/ Thoughts?
I’m a Junior accountant, recent MBA grad in Finance, located in NYC, just got laid off due to a merger. Anybody hiring or know any opening positions?

PPEDs: Just found out that a Partner, who was promoted in 2017, was fired. IDK the circumstances. What can they expect to walk away with besides 401k & normal pension plan?
. Hey ya’ll. Need advice. I was part of recent layoffs. I’ve been asked to return. Same pay and I will not be eligible for raises since the role is new. I’m also now an IC instead of a leader of leaders. My goal is to get to VP in the next two years. I’ve also had some great interviews and expect offers next week. I have until Tuesday to decide. How would you all go about making the decision?
I have at least 4 foreign friends on visas who are leaving the US due to layoffs. Anyone else know a lot of people who are leaving? 😢
Layoffs at RGA NY?
My ECD was really pushing for me to get promoted to CD. Our group president wanted to see more townhall presentations by me and if I do so I can get promoted to CD in October, he promised.
Unfortunately, I will get laid off this month. What title do I give myself best on LinkedIn and my resume? Shall I go for CD? As the company will pay few more months of salary I’m thinking of keeping the company name on LinkedIn as well. Awkward to change title to CD at xxx?
I've been feeling too bitter too often at work. My time is up. I want to take the summer off, but can't really afford to quit & wait until Sept. Layoffs scheduled for July. What would you do?
