Just got laid off. What are the top skills I should plan to learn on the side while recruiting? Senior Associate looking for strategy and ops roles, no industry preference
Better to be bold and to stand up to a client or just shut up and tell them they're right/take their shit? Senior associate who doesn't care much if fired
Dallas tax layoffs - 9 in BTS (4 SM, 2 mgr, 3 staff). Int and SALT no layoffs yet but expecting EOW.
Finally had the courage to negotiate something and it was my severance package 😂😳😭. Wish me luck, I'll get an answer by EOD today!
It’s getting bad out there. These are expected industries, but feels like it will spillover everywhere.. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/03/30/coronavirus-layoffs-rent-the-runway-zipcar-latest-to-let-workers-go-amid-pandemic/amp/
If John Schnatter resigned before the layoffs, would we have kept the account and all our lost soldiers?
Why do some people get laid off and others not? Is it always utilization? Do people typically know they're at risk before it gets to that point?
What % of people in the agency business for 10-12 years have experienced 1 or more layoffs? Just got laid off for the 1st time last week and think it’s more common than I realized.
Anyone have the graphic that someone posted a week or so ago showing what each firm was doing with hiring, layoffs, and comp during this crisis?
Anyone else not fired up about this job and losing their steam? I push back meetings, do deliverables last minute, etc. Idk how I get by each day
I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?
How are you parents of infants (under 1yo) managing both working from home and taking care of the baby with no child care/help? Feel like both spouse and I are falling behind in our jobs, and worried about either or both of us being laid off!
So, how are different firms responding to this crisis? Layoffs? Mandatory leaves of absence, salary cuts, promotion delays? Anything else? Particularly interested in Europe.
If you don’t get promoted to associate and get fired, what should you do? I'm a second year analyst on a team that is very overweight Associates. Seems like a real possibility.
Perks of being laid off and working local: no more flight and hotel reminders, no more shitty project, less politics and back biting. After 10 years I can say I have a life now.
More layoffs at CPB, Alex is picking a few people a week, number is up to apx a dozen, more to come. This is in addtn to LA office closing. I know the new biz team got cut along w digi too. No faith.
Laid off (at a somewhat senior level), and conversation was only with HR. Am I wrong to feel a little bitter that a supe/manager didn't shoot a call/email/text my way in the following days?
I think leveraging an offer to get more money is the worst. Now your bosses know you want to leave, you are the fist option during layoffs and you look like an ass the other company.
How long til big4 start layoffs? No recurring rev & slow pipeline. They will hold people as long as possible primarily bc its “product” & expensive to hire & retrain but math will take over
I am currently making 92k USD in my current job in a mid tier US city. I have got an offer of 110k CAD in Toronto. My H1B is approved till 2021 and I also have the Canadian PR. Shall I make a move?
Is ghosting job candidates the new norm? You go through extensive, multistep interview processes with many people, have an in person interview and then never hear back from the HR.
Let’s have the old HBS vs GSB debate again! Which would you choose and why? And what if you went to H or S for undergrad?
Billing at $15k/week, pretty sure that's the same thing Richard Gere paid in Pretty Woman, inflation adjusted
I see US posts on people working in fed/gov teams. What do you do exactly? What’s a typical project? I work in a AU gov team so just curious how it differs- mainly because your exit opps seem better
Our team building activity for the summer interns this year is Escape the Room. Yes, Protiviti, let’s show them exactly what it will feel like once they join the firm #goodluckgettingout
Anyone else still living at home? I’m 26 and have a decent amount saved from living and commuting into the city. Now that I’m making a decent salary I’d like to move out but with Covid seems a bit counter intuitive . I get along with my parents and everything but need my independence... also not great for dating , thoughts?
For those of you applying/having applied to a grad program: is there a point after which academic recommenders are no longer needed?
So, I am a much older 🐳 with no debt and I have decided that my exit strategy will be to decide at the end of each pay period whether to call it quits or not.
