LA: after months of layoffs and salary reductions, we are back! Looking to hire a rockstar LA-based Project Manager at our small independent agency. Projects vary from photoshoots to retail to branding/strategy. Looking for mid to senior level. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply! PM me for details.
Just joined a new consulting firm (after being laid off from the last one due to “poor performance”), and I’m being staffed conditionally on my first project. Manager has so far has given me pretty light / easy PMO work and asked me to make a few slides here and there, but generally it’s work below the level I was hired for. I’m in the post-MBA role, so want to make sure I’m meeting those expectations early on. Any advice on how to go about this and get more responsibility?

About to get rolled off a project, manager thinks I’m underperforming. Has anyone gotten rolled off before and bounced back or do you usually get fired shortly after? This is the first time
Got laid off in November. Have applied to EY, Deloitte, KPMG via referral. Applied to Slalom, BCG and McKinsey via website. Where else should I apply? I am a project manager, 15 years experience

If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Hello! I was recently laid off by my company due to an internal financial situation. The total time I’ve spent there is about 5 months. Will there be an issue getting a new job?
For those of you who have been laid off: thoughts on temping/freelancing at some random place while you search?
I got some good news that one of the accounting firms I associate with is starting hiring again for September 2020. If you have 3+ busy seasons with a Big 8 firm and were laid off or looking for work, feel free to message me for more details. I am paid for referrals, but I don't need the money so no hard sells😋 hoping to help our laid off accounting people. Admins feel free to delete it not appropriate.
RAed after 22 years of service. They only offered one month severance pay. Is that right or should I be getting more than one month?
Accenture squad...with our fiscal year coming to an end and ratings about to begin, should we expect to see layoffs similar to Deloitte and PwC this year?
Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since. I have been luck enough getting a few projects without really seeking people out while slowly interviewing. In the back of my mind I have always wanted my own agency. How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
Walked into the office in rolled up jeans, white t shirt and sneakers. Met a partner, got his number, IT actually did their job and was out of there without being fired. Can I just call it a day now?
For those of us who have been laid off, are you searching immediately for a new role or are you taking time before looking again?
To all the Deloitters - it's sad that there are layoffs.. Its good that you want to share the news and "warn" others but how about following a template -- level, office, service line, rating
About rolling off my project with no new project opportunity yet. I’m already getting anxious and can’t have a full night rest with the worry of not finding a project soon and eventually getting laid off. Although I tend to stress-out easily but this type of anxiety is different. Are others feeling the same way? Also over 90% chargeability and great reviews, but seems like that may not matter with the recent layoff stories I’ve read....
Will Slalom ever do covid layoffs?
Ford layoff news got me thinking: Why don’t corporations gradually increase annual target for separations and freeze hiring, instead of one big X% workforce reduction?
Do you have to return the sign on bonus if you get laid off, sign on period (2 years) has not yet passed. I would also like to know the firm's severance policy.
Recently people started to use “maybe you will get fired” as a joking phrase. I know it is not true but can’t help wonder is it because I am doing a bad job...
Just was fired, told I will continue to be supported for a month, but have unfinished projects I'm leading, the rest of the team doesn't know yet, what do I do? What are my options?

Regarding the “peak idiocy” slide from lower down… this has to be the peak right? The froth is insane at this point. People, even non enthusiasts, are treating watches like a risk free investment vehicle which is a classic sign of the “euphoria” phase of a bubble IMO… if you take the rowlecks blinders off for a sec these things are nice but a 90’s sub with no papers is objectively not worth $15k. The second there’s an economic contraction I bet this pops hard
