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
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.

Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
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?
What exactly is the "change in strategy" at Deloitte that people are using to explains the layoffs?
I had 3 different badges unlocked in the Consulting bowl, 2 in the Corona bowl, and another 2 in the Deloitte bowl. I suddenly realized that I now have 2 badges in total. What’s next? Getting laid off?
Layoffs and hiring freeze in Tech - is it starting? I was tracking Robinhood doing 10% layoffs, Netflix starting layoffs (mostly marketing dept), hiring freeze at Meta/Facebook, Adobe, Amex.

Listening to (Future - Mask Off) song - however, this song makes me want to go to my boss and tell him he's fired.
I’m due to get the vaccine tomorrow and feeling under the weather today with some cold like symptoms (fatigued, slightly sore throat, slight muscle aches). I often get these symptoms right before my period, which is scheduled to arrive in the next couple of days, so could be that, but I also don’t want to risk (i) getting anyone sick at the vaccination clinic or (ii) getting the vaccine if I’m actually sick. Would you postpone?
Really looking for some genuine support and advice from you all out there. I want to switch careers from PA - Big4 Audit to completely different. I am not talking about going in industry or other accounting / finance related jobs. I am thinking on lines of getting some small franchise, flip houses, real estate agent, manager as Dunkin etc type of transition. I am okay not making big $. Please don’t say do what I am passionate about because clearly I don’t know what it is and I am in search of it

I recently moved in with a partner of one year. She would say she is a “binge drinker but not an alcoholic”. She can resist starting to drink on weeknights etc but once she starts, she can’t stop without 5-7+ drinks. Moving in made me realize how bad it is. She’s seeing a therapist and is generally very touchy about discussions w/ me. When she’s sober, I love her deeply and could see myself marrying her, but the drinking feels like the one thing that can tear it all apart. Advice? So conflicted.
PSA: If anyone is on OPT with an approved H1B consular processing petition (e.g. waiting for appointments to open up), check with your university that USCIS didn’t change your status to H1B by mistake.
It’s easily fixed, but until then you won’t be able to get a new I20.
No, it doesn’t make any sense, and yes according to my uni it’s a “common mistake in F1 records”. Apparently triggered most commonly if you travel while still on F1 status (which is the whole point of consular processing).
If I definitely want to end up in Southern California, does going to UCLA over higher ranked schools make sense?
I think I'm getting laid off today.

Thoughts on FTI?
When my tenant/boyfriend was under lease of my land he erected a metal storage building and continued to inprove it. He also has been restoring a small shed on the premises. Once executed lease was up verbally agreed he could continue and just maintain property until I he was ready to buy or if we got serious we would build. A strained and toxic relationship unraveled. So now he has improved on the property almost as much as what my total investment has been since I purchased property.
