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.

Suggestions! 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?

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.
