My husband was affected by covid related layoffs this morning from a cybersecurity product company. He is a principal software engineer with 9+ years of front end experience (angular, ember, node, html css). Located in Virginia but open to move anywhere and would need immigration support. Any pointers to companies that are hiring right now / a referral from a kind internet stranger would be appreciated. Thanks!
So our school board just fired our principal last tonight. He was terrible for the last five years but decided now would be a good time. Our head secretary who has been here for 30 years took a different position at another site two weeks ago because of that principal. We start school in three weeks with no principal, no head secretary, and no schedule for distance learning. Please pray for me 😐
One teacher is actively trying to get another teacher fired. She’s gone to the principal, higher up, w/all sorts of unfounded complaints. Is there anything that can be done? Legally? HR? Union?
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
After being told you will be laid off in 2 weeks time if you can't find a new team in your firm, would you rather look for jobs outside the firm or would you accept if another team in your firm asks..
If I were to be laid off, I'd stand to receive ~2400 / month for 26wks in unemployment if you don't include the CARES ACT increase. Really my only fixed expense is rent at 1350 + utilities. Immoral
So....which agency is giving out $100 gift cards to all employees? Wondering where these ~30% layoffs might happen after that CSO alluded to them in another post on here.
Does anyone else think it's in poor taste to throw all out, expensive holiday parties when the entire groupe is experiencing layoffs?
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
Has anyone heard of layoffs happening yet? Not trying to stir the pot, just genuinely want to know
I was laid off back in January and have been on the job hunt since. I’ve been lucky enough to make it to the final round for a few different companies... but ultimately did not receive an offer. Starting to have a hard time keeping my head up... any other fish in a similar situation?
For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
best advice for someone looking to transition from consulting into tech? Was laid off recently from consulting and have around 1 yr of experience, but haven’t seen many entry-level strategy roles in tech — do folks have any advice?
Arguing consistently with manager on approach. Even told her last year workpapers sucked. I'm so fired. Lol 🤣😂🔫 and I'm on student visa And goodbye 5 at senior 1 after pulling an excellent year
Just learned that I got laid off. I'm on work visa. What should I be doing? Have one month to find a job.
I’m a F and my manager (also a F) is 1 level above me. We rarely interact and neither in the same city nor project. But when we do, she acts unnecessarily aggressive and curt towards me. How to deal?
I have had 4 social media internships and one freelance role so I'm not exactly a pro, but I definitely get what is involved with a social manager role and want to try something else. My major was in advertising strategy (yes, specifically that) and I want to pivot and try it out. Any tips / ppl you've seen do it / descriptios of your day to day in strategy? I'm hoping I can make some of my social material support my ability as a junior strategist
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
MBB folks: where would you exit & maintain comp? Thinking of moving out of California. Love CHI but worried there’s only a couple really great gigs in town, which puts NYC back on the table.
Long time and missing to meet with daddy types/ stocky guys. I miss all the travel 😩 HMU if anyone looking to chat. 😬
Anyone use edgenuity? I'm starting Monday with students, never been trained, no guidance. Don't know how to set expectations if I don't know. ice breaker ideas? I'm not in my classroom.. media center.
Which level of the CFA do you have to pass to see tangible benefits for your resume? What additional opportunities will be available/more attainable?
Honest Q. If I took leave of absence or STD at a big 4 firm. Could that hurt me when applying or looking to move to another consulting firm or industry? Wondering if anyone outside my firm even knows?
I am planning to move from fintech to consulting after 2.5 years of work ex. Was curious how the pay and bonuses are like at top consulting firms like Deloitte/pwc/KPMG for software development roles
ACN gets compensation info tomorrow for salary increases. I expect to hear a lot of joy and sorrow on FB. Good luck everyone!
Life lessons: Do not correct a fool; he will hate you. Correct a wise man, he will appreciate you!
Posting this here because it feels like a safer space than the main bowl. I’m considering writing a book of fables for adults. Each with a life lesson - adventure, magic, storytelling, etc.
Anyone more from B4 to any accounting consulting companies, such as CFGI, Riveron, Alvarez and Marsal, etc? Thoughts.
JUST FOR FUN: Which Hogwarts house does each Big 4 firm best resemble? (We already know which firm would be Hufflepuff - sorry in advance KPMG)
GMAT or GRE? My writing skills are better than math but worried MBA programs won’t really value GRE the same way
