Dallas tax layoffs - 9 in BTS (4 SM, 2 mgr, 3 staff). Int and SALT no layoffs yet but expecting EOW.
Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders. I made a few other mistakes and was rolled off by my manager (SM) b/c I sucked and it was a higher burn engagement he needed a stronger BA. Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.
Is it appropriate to talk with your M and SM about your concern over layoffs? I want to talk to them about wanting to increase my workload and scope.
Suggestions! Was put on PIP coz of last year's util%. Currently having intermin above expectations in PIP. PIP POC says BPOC(SM I haven't worked with) fired on him for giving a good feedback and asked to set unrealistic expectations w/o - clarity in requirements, supporting docs(tho they have it) and feedback. I have recorded the calls with PIP POC & coach telling that they can't go against BPOC and give a good feedback despite I meeting all the expectations. Should I show the rcrding to MD/HR?
Nobody has emailed me since last Thursday. Am I fired but just don’t know it? Escalation email asking for work to do to SM and Partner haven’t been responded to, nobody should be on PTO as far as the calendar says
Can a Senior Manager who otherwise has a good reputation, get fired for bullying? If not, will this person still make it to partner? There seems to be a lack of transparency in firms around this
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
SM here - if my work visa is not renewed, would I be eligible for severance? Current non compete has 3 months of severance included
Fellow Fishes - I am seeking referral in Atlassian.. got laid off last week (SM, 15YOE) looking next gig actively. Thank You 🙏🏼
If I go back to my previous big 4 firm from D will people think it’s because of the layoffs? My former SM reached out and said I’m welcome back anytime....
Serious question: should I do anything in response to a SM trying his damnedest to get me fired without cause?
Current M at big 4. Oppty to move to a Director role(SM equiv) at a smaller firm with large layoffs 2 years ago but rebounding. 10% base bump, higher bonus target , more resp. Stay or go?
Found out a SM derailed my promotion this year. I'm on my way out to a better job & SM just got fired for being toxic. They want me to stay because of that. Should I reconsider? #profitsfirst
I’m not waiting on the next season of Game of Thrones anymore! My project fills in for all that drama! 1 client stakeholder fired, 1 SM fired, 2 put on probation and they are taking about next phase🤣
Came in to find out the pmo got fired just before holidays . The other manager tells me not to trust the senior manager , who actually was the one to staff me . Should I tell the senior manager ?
It feels so good when your best friend is your senior manager and you build a case against a less senior manager then he is fired. Sucks but feels so good.
Has anyone gotten laid off from one big4 and gone to another big4 and stayed there for several years to manager, senior manager position?
Just heard that they may be a round of analyst layoffs in the west due to not enough projects and too many analysts being on the bench for too long. Source SM from the Midwest
Senior manager laid off without a reason-every manager and consultant loved her-a shock to everyone.
On layoffs: really funny how no one in leadership was blamed, people who they need to get stuff done were sacked and there was no conversation on how the company can change to navigate the market.
I think I'm going to get fired. I'm staff 1 and in my first audit. I "found" something and brought it up for a 2nd look just in case. It escalated and now I'm in a middle of a mess. (Cont)
Was lucky to get a job shortly after being laid off. Work’s not hard but feeling burned out cause of bad process, meaningless jobs on top of the pointlessness of everything happening. How you coping?
“This global pandemic is exactly what our industry needed.” Okay...now repeat this exact phrase to the hundreds already laid off and all the ones to come. 🤯 https://www.campaignlive.com/article/took-global-pandemic-draw-line-sand-adland-sorely-needed/1678340
If you’re not promoted within the general timeline (ie 2-3 years to senior, etc...) is it safe to assume that you will either be coached out or fired?
I’ve heard Undergrad and Graduate placement into firms have been somewhat reduced due to covid. additionally some firms have laid off staff consultants. With this said, what are your guys thoughts on experienced hire recruiting for Summer 2020? Do you expect a highly competitive fall?
What are your expenses/time horror stories? Has anyone gotten fired in relation to expenses? Compensation withheld?
Has anyone ever been fired for not working more than 45-50 hr work weeks? When you’re really passionate about your work, you’re willing to extend to do whatever it takes to do your job well...continue
I took over a vp position (as a director) when they were fired from my agency. Now, moving teams and they have hired another vp to replace me. I’ve asked for promotion and received silence in return
Since I told my partner that I'm pregnant, his behavior has changed. Could this be a sign that I will soon be fired? I have never received a bad review. My review is average though.
Anyone here ex-EY have had issues in getting their severance? It’s taking more than a month or more after the separate date to get the final severance amount. Is there is reason for this much delay? Or is it normal?
Does anyone know someone who has been fired from their firm for political activism? Please state why and the context.
I am pretty certain I'll be laid off in the next 2 months, and am about to start a new project, with a very high-profile client and incredibly demanding work pretty much round the clock. Do I just "go with the flow" until I get my pink slip? I don't want to be killing myself knowing I am on my way out, but I can't exactly share this with the client either. Any recommendations on how to proceed?
Anyone familiar with ESET- elective single embryo transfer. I’m reading through Aetna’s infertility clinics bulletin and saw this mentioned for anyone under the age of 35 who have no prior IVF cycles or who have had a previous IVF cycle that was successful in producing a pregnancy (i.e., documentation of fetal heartbeat) and who have excess embryos of sufficient quality to warrant cryopreservation... see comment for adtl details
