I just got laid off. I currently work as an IT program manager. I'm looking to transition from industry to consulting where I can leverage my experience to solve complex client problems. I'd appreciate referrals!
Info needed about Amazon ASAP. I applied for an Amazon Technical Program Manager role but the Amazon recruiter reached out to me for a Risk Manager role. What’s the pay like for Managers at Amazon. I’m currently a Deloitte Manager - Base is $144k. Should I even bother? I wouldn’t want to leave D for a lateral move. But...At this point I’m trying to hedge my bets against the impending D layoffs while not shortchanging myself. Thanks in advance!
Anyone have a sense of why Deloitte got hit so hard by layoffs? I’ve heard four potential reasons:
1. Client mix / type of work
3. Over hired in anticipation of growth
4. Partners didn’t want to take a haircut
Just curious! From an external perspective, seems like they cut way more than the other firms.
Should I be alarmed that I haven’t had a conversation with my director in a week +? (Any tips for coming to terms with being laid off for the first time?)
Laid off. Wha wha. Anyone hiring out there?
Employee law question:
In the state of CA for a full time non-exempt role. If fired without warning (no previous warnings/feedback) ⚠️ for "performance" (although performance was arguably good) or actually "team fit" (politics), do you have any case or legal standing?
I got laid off today and I’m scared
I was laid off from Deloitte in the 18th. I have an interview with Amazon for a Senior Program Managers Non Technical position with Amazon hiring manager on Monday. Any advice would be much appreciated. I would love to get into Amazon. I hear their interview process is brutal.
Which firms have had layoffs within the last 6 months? Was it contained to a particular practice, "sub-group" or other characteristic? It seems like a lot of firms have been making cuts....
A couple of months ago I was hired by Amazon as an Automation Engineer, but got fired after a week due to a positive drug test during the medical visit that is done during the first days.
If you are a management consultant with no hard skills or focus area, what skills would you invest in now (during quarantine) to prep for layoffs or exit opps — in the COVID / post COVID economy?
Is it weird to work at a place where you were laid off due to corona? If they’re hiring, is it weird to reach out? Left on good terms.
CEO’s out there guaranteeing no Covid layoffs, cutting their own salaries and creating employee relief funds. Aside from employee videos, which leaders in advertising are stepping up with actions?

Projects are sized with an aggressive timeline. However clients will take their time to respond, meet since they know they won’t get fired easily for not prioritizing the project (as they have the actual day job to focus on). How does Partner just blindly accept this fact and still want an aggressive timeline? On paper they’d say it’s client issue but still want it done ‘on time’, on budget.
Just learnt that one VP in my client (ibank) suddenly disappeared (laid off). Which is very scary as her work is good, what is the most scary laid off story you have heard?
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client?
Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Ouch. If true this is just dirty. Can anyone from pwc confirm?

Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF:
We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy.
...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.
Have an offer to start at Deloitte in July in Org Transformation consulting. If it doesn’t get pushed out because of the virus, is it a good time to switch firms in July? Concerned that layoffs may be imminent if I am so new to the firm. I will be coming in at the Consultant level if that matters.
I don't like our new offices at 3WTC.
Hello People if God! How is everyone doing? I hope and pray you continue to seek the Lord during this time. He is with us at all times and will supply our needs. I think this is a huge season of pruning. Old things falling off, making room for the new. It’s been a challenge for sure, but the outcome is Growth! Anyone else feeling like this is a season of Growth?
