REPOST: Hello Everyone! I was recently laid off by Armanino because they did the audit for FTX and they're getting sued so they laid off a bunch of their staff. I was a Project Manager there so if anyone can refer me or knows any open positions in Tech, Finance or Consulting, I'd be extremely grateful. I financially help support my family so this is very unfortunate for me. My resume is below. Thank you all!
John Deere Financial was a great company to work for until you take their Voluntary Separation package & leave the company. After 24 yrs at the company, was ghosted by HR when I had questions about the package. No exit interview. Just an email letting me know to turn in my work equipment or face having to pay for it. Treated like garbage by management. The pandemic lead the organization to offer the packages & they threatened layoff if packages not taken by employees. Horrible experience
Are company layoffs good or bad for business for the people who's jobs are staying? My company of about 200 people just let 15 people go. Is this a good sign or bad sign? I'm 27F with about 5 years experience at this company. Does this lead to more room for growth at this stage of my career or is this a red flag?
What are the odds that I’ll be allowed to WFH after completing my FLDP (the undergraduate kind, not the MBA kind)? I know people always say you’re more valuable to the company after you finish these programs but do I have enough leverage to do this (and not get fired, haha)?
If you have an offer to switch but with 2023 start, and you are in a toxic work environment, is there anything you can do to minimize risk of being PIP’ed or fired before new start date? Quitting early would probably raise red flags with new firm. Assume $ isn’t a huge prob
Just was offered VP Implementations role at Citi in the ICG group, any insight or thoughts of probability for layoffs next year for a role like that? Even general thoughts of working in implementations are appreciated as well.
I feel like quitting, unfortunately. I had always associated my identity with my career. My career was going fine until I was mass-laid off because my consulting division didn’t have enough work. I had 8 YOE and was new immigrant in Canada. Canadian banks took advantage and hired me at lowest level. It’s been 5 years and I can’t move up because I’m not good at politics (despite “exceptional” rating). I am not good at interviewing. Had 5 leads last week, 3 gone in a day.

Extremely toxic work environment & interviewing for other jobs. Would you 1) risk being fired (unsure when) or 2) quit/give notice and risk not having an offer fast enough? My finance is set and I’m primarily concerned about professional reputation. Somewhat unsure what to say to interviewers with whom I already started the process, though the real reason is role is nothing like advertised worsened by diff personalities… What would you do?
How often do you switch jobs? I was in a job for 10+ years, got layoff, then switched to another one for 1 year (left due to company instability) and landed on my current job (a start-up). I think it finally hits me hard on my pay cut and am thinking if it’s a good time to look for another job now. With 2 short-term jobs (both for 1 year) would that really hurt me when I go on interviews?
. 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?
For those that are thinking of moving to new jobs. Are you worried about moving to a new company and being laid off? With the economy the way it is and rumors of lay offs this is something that makes me think twice about leaving. I am aware that it can happen at my current company but it's it more likely to be laid off first in a new company?
MM investment bank. I am in zero fucks given mode and am working remotely even though we’re supposed to be in the office. How likely is it that I get fired?
Just began a new job at JPMC, & i’m very confused. I don’t want to get fired for doing nothing but they’ve literally delegated me no tasks so far. My days consist of meet & greets and meetings that i just sit in for. I have like 5 hours each day of completely nothing. I come from a very busy company so it confused me to have so much free time. my colleagues are always trying to get me to hang in the cafe or etc and it just feels wrong &I’ve been having to schedule my own training with teammates
Will getting fired as a financial analyst be the end of the world? I am having a very hard time with the WIP Actual vs Budget reports.
Work Two Jobs: I’m about to accept an offer from another Bank, could I hypothetically work at my current bank until they realize that I’m simply not working enough/ doing anything and eventually severance me? I would meet 100% of my obligations at my new shop, and just not do anything with my old one.
I don’t care about burning bridges. What are the ramifications of this? What do you think the likely hood that my new shop would ever find out. I work remotely and so I feel like I could swing it
Hi all! I just wanted to ask if TD Canada would have any hiring freezes or layoffs happening anytime soon... Any word about it? I've signed an offer (and did onboarding processes) and I'll be on vacation soon, but I'm worried that I might come back to no job (since my start date is after my vacation).
Just got an offer working in the back office at Morgan Stanley approving and going over new accounts. Currently in the background check process. Am I foolish for making this job change with a possible recession/layoffs ahead?
'21 Grad who just got laid off a year after starting with a RE Developer. I'm lost right now and not sure what to do. My main focus was around project valuations, and proforma analysis. Has anyone gone through this? Especially so early on in my career.
Kind of a loaded question here. I am a recent under-graduate making 100k my first year out of school. I really enjoy it, but don’t feel like I’m adding any value to my desk. Wondering if this is normal or if I’m about to get fired. In the ladder case, should I take my MBA or search for a new role?
Hi! I am currently working at a FinTech startup that doesn’t have enough runway for the next few months. Joined about 5 months ago and I think I need to start looking for jobs desperately because there’s a high chance there maybe layoffs. Anyone hiring?
Been laid off recently. Feeling bummed out. Wondering if anyone is hiring? Or knows or someone hiring? Looking for FP&A/strategic finance roles in tech or high growth startups.
Is now really a good time to be switching jobs? Especially going into a big market like NYC? Fears of a recession making me reconsider whether I should grow where I am or move down to NYC but run the risk of being the first laid off in the case that the economy goes bust
Working for a mortgage company, a coworker asked when the rate hikes would lighten up due to fear of layoffs… any other mortgage workers fearing the layoffs?
Have you ever been fired as a result of your employer realizing you are starting to look elsewhere? I’m not 100% sure, but I feel like my boss knows I’ve been interviewing at some other companies. We don’t have the best relationship and I’m worried they will get rid of me before I can secure another position. Does this actually happen to people?
Do you think I will get fired: sent an email this morning to my boss that I took on the role 8-5 occasional Fri night check outs and my schedule has been 10-12 hours multiple days weekly and the rest 9-10 and I’m just tired and my exercise/eat/sleep schedule is a mess because of it. I told her I’m not willing to do these hours and my life and health needs to come first. I’m at the point I don’t care if they fire me because I need sleep and food.
What are the most persuasive arguments or phrases to use when negotiating a higher severance? A friend was recently let go from their job and does have some leverage in the form of knowing some things the firm has done that are allegedly illegal/would run afoul of regulators, but prefers not to get a lawyer involved to negotiate on their behalf or sue.
I’m starting at the new firm soon & want to leave all the toxicity I experienced in my old team behind. I finally feel like a bird that is being freed from the cage…I realize that I unintentionally turned into my manager’s slave over time because of fear that i might be fired. I lost motivation for creativity there, because my manager would always stab me in the back. Any tips on how to get out of old mindset? I’m afraid I’ll start at a new place with sam expectation of toxicity from new manager
Can I quit with nothing else lined up? I have the savings to not work for…idk a year if I really wanted to. I know that when I go to reapply for places, it will probably look like I got fired. Such a corporate slave.
Can you apply to a company you were fired from years ago? Has anyone had this experience?
We have a big project going on and I am the only point person(initiate it, did lot of work, and knows the deets well), seems like my mgr wants to get a headcount. But I want to use this opportunity to get promoted, how can I get this across? Mgr is new(they fired my old mgr), mgr’s mgr is new too(re-org). So not sure if I should/can make a case, or how.
Does anyone here work for Silicon Valley Bank? They recently acquired Boston Private. I’m a candidate for a job at Boston Private. Wondering if SVB is planning layoffs in the near term at BP? Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information! Silicon Valley Bank
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter.
I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired.
Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
Hi all. Please give me an advice.
I am still in my twenties but was fired by HF in less than a year because of bad relationship with my boss and my poor performance (originally from EU investment bank)
Three months have passed now and got an offer from back office position from another EU investment bank.
Though i want to continue seeking front office position, no pipeline anymore now.
Should I accept this offer?
If you were making 120k base in NYC and got laid off, how much will you get for unemployment?
Is it true that Amazon employees need to reapply for their jobs every year and the bottom 5% are laid off annually? How cutthroat is Amazon compared to other companies?
My MDs position was eliminated today. Is that a bad sign that layoffs are coming on my team?
Got fired. Pour one out
When I was at Accenture I thought ACN Strategy was the top of the top but I didn’t go to a fancy school so imagine how hard it was to network my way in. Then they stopped transfers because of COVID and I was laid off despite all of the good reviews I had calling for me to be promoted. I was almost happy with 100k just to be a senior analyst in Strategy.
Today I just signed my offer at a tier 2 firm and I’m making over 180k. Thank you Accenture for the lay off. EVERYONE KEEP PUSHING!!!!!!!!
In the S&O practice and have not been staffed since mid March. Since then been doing 50-60 hrs a week on BD (I’m a Manager for reference). Utilization was around 100% back in March currently 70%. Great reviews in Lead liked by colleagues etc. However the past few weeks have been quite depressed as I’m worried I’ll be laid off. Took a week off to take a mental break but can’t seem to relax at all (lockdown + lack of childcare isn’t helping) should I start updating my resume?
I'm struggling - I used to love my job not only because the work was interesting, but because I truly enjoyed my coworkers. But for the last year or so, the culture has become toxic due to layoffs...
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
My firm pays staff & seniors hourly, with 1.5x pay for overtime. Firm just cut our hours from the normal 58-60 down to 40 a week for the foreseeable future. Should I be concerned about layoffs?
Was a Junior AD at an experiential agency before layoffs w/ the goal of working at a “traditional” agency. Looking for advice and feedback on how to improve/add to my book with that in mind.
CCTC including all benefits is 16.57 with 8.3 YOE, primarily focused on Manual Testing.
Is it worth looking for another opportunity?
I am afraid after seeing layoffs news of EPAM, Publicis Sapient & most of the other companies calling employees in the office.
I love my WFH in PwC India & base location of Kolkata. & the best thing is stability in PwC India, they never lay off!!
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
Sebior associate just got stealth fired from a V10 (i.e., there's no business case to promote you in October out of the associate pool because of COVID). Will likely be given a formal recommendation to look elsewhere in September but it seems clear their mind is made up. Any advice? Is there any value in considering an employment lawyer re severance etc? Not sure whether to apply now for jobs ideally starting early next year or to wait and take some time off completely.
Seeing all these Deloitte "tellyourstory" posts on LinkedIn and no one is telling their story about the forced pay cuts or unnecessary layoffs.
Agency laid off all producers, is now having BA produce. BA texts laid off employees for vendor recs. 🙄 (the eye roll is at the agency, not the BA manager who didn’t sign up for this...)
New Analyst here - What does it mean to get fired for poor performance? Do they do that without ever responding to your calls for feedback from project leadership or asked by you to step it up? Cont..
Recruiter reached out about opportunity with mobile gaming startup - 100K starting comp with promise of significant raise 1 year in. Said they fired last person cause they wouldn't put in the CONT....
Getting to that point where I need to balance between being shitty at my job so I get rolled off, but not shitty enough to get fired
How do you figure out how much you are worth?
Anyone have a feel for the networking value at Union League Club or any other city clubs for lawyers under 40?
On the transactional side of things, what is the expectation of Associates to start bringing in their own work, or start developing their own book of clients?
When they are mid or senior level?
