New Hires/College grads who were laid off from IBM GBS in Spring 2018. Where are you today? And how do you feel about IBM now? For context, back then, IBM overhired a significant amount of young professionals and let go a sizable chunk of them. They also almost postponed start dates for the class of 2018 by a year. As a result, IBM has been blacklisted by many universities from OCR.

Before you are fired for bad performance do managers usually give you a heads up or things you can work on? Or can this just come out of the blue? Also once someone thinks you are a poor performer can you come back from this?

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?

Maybe I am pessimistic but this hot market has me suspicious. A year ago, all these consulting firms laid off a significant chunk of people. Whose to say, they won't make another short sighted decision and screw everyone again?

I got hired for a specific client and a few weeks into my onboarding, the client announced that we were essentially being fired (through no fault of mine). My leadership reassured me that they’ll staff me elsewhere but I’m not sure I want to hitch my wagon to people who can’t seem to do anything right. I want to start job searching but I’m concerned that other places won’t consider me because I’ve only been here two months. Any advice on how to best explain the short stint?
