Just got laid off after a 3-minute call with a partner today. Any layoffs going on in other firms? Love consulting but anxious to find another consulting job now

I was fired after I reported a partner for a serious (criminal) ethics violation. The firm covered it up. Are all companies like this in the end? I’ve lost my trust and don’t know how to start over.

Choice between a really nice property, under budget, with a pool (main reason for wanting this place), minor updates needed + landscaping eventually (well manicured lawn), in great school district (no kids so don't care but it makes it well positioned for resale - only lasted a week last time it was on the market 4 yrs ago), vs. new construction townhouse, in similar area, max budget + higher taxes ... On paper it sounds like a no-brainer but I'm torn... Some help here plz 🙏

I was asked in a video interview what I do for fun and I said that my indoor cycle has been a really great outlet during quarantine and I felt like I got weird up and down looks and just a bad vibe because I’m not clearly thin or athletic woman... but it doesn’t mean I don’t like to exercise! Anyone else experience this or something similar?
