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?
Friend got laid off from Collaborative Solutions today. She obtained Workday certifications while employed there. They are requesting her to pay back the cost (6K) of the certifications. Advice?
Shots fired 😂
At D feeling guilty for avoiding layoffs as I haven’t worked more than an hour a week since WFH began. I automated almost all of my work and told nobody. My PPMD thinks these analyses take hours when in reality I change a few variables in my boilerplate code and say I’m “managing data integrity” for hours
What are the most stable companies/industries during this recession and pandemic 👀 Or which consulting firm has the least risk of having massive layoffs?
I also just got laid off! My last day is in 2 weeks. How do I tell someone who just texted me for some deliverables that I don’t want to do them because I’m laid off?
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
If your counselee was fired and after a month, you saw him at the same client site (lobby), would you ignore him?
So both the coronavirus and layoffs seem like such abstract concepts to me. I know that people are dying and losing their jobs, but I can't name a single person that has been affected in either of these ways.
Made my first big, client-facing mistake today. Almost made it a year without one, but alas. Embarrassed and nervous about fallout, especially in the time of layoffs. Say a little prayer for me.
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. 😂
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.
Better than a promotion: Finding out the certain someone you worked with for your entire career and hated, gets fired 😌
What’s your doomsday plan assuming you’re laid off, can’t find work, and the economy slips into a depression?
Can you get fired or laid off if you are on a short term disability leave? Does this call for a lawsuit if this happens?
Was unexpectedly asked to roll off a project today. It was a bit of a shock because this has never happened in my career before. There were certainly things I could have done better, but I don’t feel I did anything wrong and I feel I did my best to address feedback I did receive. Aside from starting a new project search ASAP and talking to my career counselor to have my side of the story heard....what else can I do in terms of damage control? Panicking now because of all the covid layoffs...
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.
Hey 🐠 - I’m early in my pregnancy and interviewing bc I’m afraid of being laid off soon. How can I find out from the firms I interview with whether they have minimum tenure requirements to qualify for paid maternity leave (e.g., need to be at firm 1 year before qualifying)? Obviously, this is the most important benefit for me and I will not be revealing my pregnancy during the interview process. Anyone been through this and have any advice? TIA
My roommate was fired from a boutique today, for “performance” (read: COVID) after 1.5 YOE. He is convinced that his career will never get back on track/recover (at 23). Is this true?
Anyone been in a situation where you know you’re getting laid off and you resign first? Is there any chance the firm does not accept your resignation and decides to lay you off instead? I’m debating how late to push my resignation to maximize my income, but don’t want to be laid off first bc the company that hired me could see that in my background check. Any and all advice/former experiences welcome.
Deloitte’s rep in the market should go down. Layoff off people in the peak of a pandemic with social unrest is not okay. they couldn’t hold a month longer?
I have an exit opp with a 30% increase. I should be grateful, especially to have a life raft when more layoffs are likely incoming, but all I feel is grief. Grief at leaving consulting, at having to move geographies. I don’t want to accept an offer when this is how I feel, even if the offer seems to make logical sense. How do I know what to do?
9 weeks after being laid off ... I got an offer today that far surpasses everything I’ve hoped for in consulting... low travel, no utilization worries and no sales bogey. I’m glad I kept my tech skills up.
Can those of you who were working during the 2009 financial crisis or earlier recessions share your experiences? Especially around the uncertainty, layoffs, career/income impacts, etc.
Nice to see how other companies react to their leaders when layoffs/job actions occur. Never see these types of posts from consulting companies. Any reason why?
I just got laid off. Actively on a project, level 10 S&C, chargability at 85% but almost 8 percent recoverable on top of that. Have to look for a job now. Anyone hiring? Thanks all! I’ve had a great time here!
Next week you will be happy to WFH. The following week you will be bored because your project will be cancelled because your client feels poor. Then the layoffs come....
“This global pandemic is exactly what our industry needed.” Okay...now repeat this exact phrase to the hundreds already laid off and all the ones to come. 🤯 https://www.campaignlive.com/article/took-global-pandemic-draw-line-sand-adland-sorely-needed/1678340
I think I'm going to get fired. I'm staff 1 and in my first audit. I "found" something and brought it up for a 2nd look just in case. It escalated and now I'm in a middle of a mess. (Cont)
I took over a vp position (as a director) when they were fired from my agency. Now, moving teams and they have hired another vp to replace me. I’ve asked for promotion and received silence in return
Since I told my partner that I'm pregnant, his behavior has changed. Could this be a sign that I will soon be fired? I have never received a bad review. My review is average though.
Anyone here ex-EY have had issues in getting their severance? It’s taking more than a month or more after the separate date to get the final severance amount. Is there is reason for this much delay? Or is it normal?
Does anyone know someone who has been fired from their firm for political activism? Please state why and the context.
Just got laid off from my job due to restructuring... as an Aussie worker in NYC on an E3 visa being laid off for the first time, im lost...any leads and advice is absolutely appreciated

Are there any agencies that have not gone through any layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts, hiring freezes etc? Shops that are, so far still financially functioning as normal? I know squarespace is one.
Have you ever been fired? NOT laid off. Fired. How badly does it impact your career? No matter how ridiculous the reason is. Important note: I am employed. Just paranoid.
USA has been hit with the largest amount of layoffs in our industry, since I arrived here 10 years ago. What a f*** is going on? Is Trump the reason?

I try not to glorify it, but I'll make jokes about my past. Everyone knows I'm sober, though I rarely namedrop AA.
Not affiliated with this brand in any way but this is the best stuff ever, smells great, soft shiny hair and is a fraction of what I used to pay for salon products!!! Had to share
As an asian American, I got yelled by rando on the street for wearing mask and told me to go back to China back in Feb, today, I got yelled by rando for not wearing a mask and walking in my neighborhood (I kept my mask in my pocket bc no one was around me). The rando was across the street from me. Sigh.
