Hey friends, I was laid off (due to COVID) from Accenture a month ago as an analyst. I had a pretty good network of SM, MD and managers that I talked to frequently before. However once I was laid off, I got depressed and haven’t reached out to any of them. I feel horrible but I’m trying to push myself out of my depression and make some positive changes. My fear is that at this point, I’m just a number and that they don’t care. It’s causing me anxiety and I’m telling myself it’s too late now.
Random MD call at 3pm EST today. Potentially getting laid off. Wish me luck. Any words of wisdom would b appreciated. Scared of the unknown.
Got scheduled for a random MD chat tomorrow. Wish me luck. My heart just sank, but I knew this might happen due to lower chargeability. Ironic since yesterday I dreamt I got laid off.
Was put on PIP coz of last year's util%.
Currently having intermin above expectations in PIP. PIP POC says BPOC(SM I haven't worked with) fired on him for giving a good feedback and asked to set unrealistic expectations w/o - clarity in requirements, supporting docs(tho they have it) and feedback.
I have recorded the calls with PIP POC & coach telling that they can't go against BPOC and give a good feedback despite I meeting all the expectations.
Should I show the rcrding to MD/HR?
Currently living in my hometown. Joined Accenture a few months back and MD wants me to move to another city. I’m living with some family currently and want to wait it out due to covid, layoffs, etc. but I want to move out of my family’s place but still in the same city till I move. I just don’t have enough room here. Thing is I don’t want to buy new furniture and then have to bring it with me to that new city. I’d rather bring less to that new city and buy when I get there. What should I do?
Performance review recently, good performer and all is going well. Up for promotion. Then my project MD emails me saying we should connect and I go into tailspin thinking I’m in trouble. Logically, am I getting fired? And why is this exactly where my mind goes?
I need advice. I’m on a project and I just don’t know what to do. My 2 SMs keep yelling at me & my anxiety is crazy I’ve gone to the MD and he does nothing, sometimes joins in. It’s only me and a M doing the work and he acts like this is normal. I’ve talked to my counselor and he doesn’t care. I understand that I make mistakes, but the yelling only makes it worse. I’m tired and wish they would roll me off already, but I’m scared w/ layoffs. These men are all old enough to be my father.
Hey folx! My SO is filing for unemployment benefits after being laid off due to covid. The issue here is that he lives in DC as of Nov 2019, filed his 2019 taxes in MD and his tech company was based in Los Angeles but he traveled all the time. He filed in DC and got denied since they couldn’t find the job he worked?? Not sure if he should provide his W-2 to DC or just file in MD instead. Any help is appreciated as he’s weeks behind on getting benefits.
The acting SECNAV who fired the TR Captain was an MD at PwC and their global defense network lead. I’m embarrassed as a fellow USNA alumni. Honor, Courage, Commitment huh?
Potential for Layoffs:
I’m the most junior associate at my firm (30-40 attorneys in the Baltimore, MD area) by about three weeks. More in comments...
Was brought onto a project in red status 2 months ago. Last month client sponsor (SVP) was fired. This week my project MD was transferred off the account. Project still red. Pretty shook right now.
I reported a sexual harassment against a MD a couple of months after the summer and never heard back after the hotline said they'll have updates 3 weeks later. I am now laid off and MD is still on my
Share your craziest story about a coworker fired... I'll start. A VP invited a hooker back to his hotel room and she stole his laptop. He told the MD about it and got fired.
Heard about possible SM and MD layoffs today?
When your MD messages you at exactly 11:59pm and tells you to come into his office for a 'quick-small update'. Me thinking "layoff?" 🤔
An MD gave me a little more info around the layoffs. 200+ across levels (associate to partner) within FS. Mostly banking.

My coworkers and I were laid off from Grant Thornton mostly due to utilization issues, although it's sad that utilizations were out of our control, should've left earlier like the rest of our peers.
Was graciously given a heads up by a friend in management that I (& half the office) will be laid off. Aside from grabbing portfolio stuff, how should I prepare for my final day(s?) on this earth?

B. The one who got fired
