If your counselee was fired and after a month, you saw him at the same client site (lobby), would you ignore him?
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.
What’s your doomsday plan assuming you’re laid off, can’t find work, and the economy slips into a depression?

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.
