I'm a new manager. I was taught to give opportunities to others and know my team's motivation. In my team, there's a person who just doesn't care. She doesn't care about career progression or salary or getting fired. How to best manage her?

Context: During social interaction, I sensed she's either from a super rich family and has a very rich SO. It's none of my business, but I just want to learn how to manage her, as I can't find her motivation.

I personally feel that I am more of a slower worker than my other peers at WIPFLI. I take my time when I work through my assignments. Recently I have had a conversation from a Partner and separate conversation with a Sr. Manager who is my performance coach. They both say it takes what it takes to complete a job. But both are asking questions about my over budget. What do I do? I’m scared that I will get fired, honestly. I just try to do my best. I’m thinking of having a chat with them.

So, I just fired my first employee as a manager and I'm heartbroken. He was a great, great person but after 6 months on a PIP he just wasn't cutting it skills-wise. I know he was the provider of the household and his wife didn't have a job since she was raising three young ones. Needless to say, I had to take off because I felt terrible, sick to my stomach. How do you deal with firing guilt? Is that a thing? I can't help but feeling like I did something wrong.

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).

Curious, is it common practice to advise managers *not* to remain in correspondence with a recently terminated employee? An employee was just fired *without* cause (headcount reduction) and has been trying to contact his former manager to stay in touch, etc. The manager has not responded to the employee yet.

If a manager told you they were going to do everything they could to get you fired next round of performance reviews because he doesn’t like you, How would you handle this? Reporting to HR will probably just get me fired sooner. Should I quit and find a new job? I like working here. Do I tough it out and hope it was a verbal slip.?

Hello,

I am a newly hired cross Industry PDM employee and with the US federal reserve set to raise interest rates and slow down the economy, I had a question regarding layoffs. I assume layoffs are coming and I had a question regarding PDM employees during these. Are they usually the first to go since they are easier to get rid of? Or are they kept because they have less overhead and overall cheaper? I want to plan for my financial future but not sure how Deloitte usually handles PDM employees
