Dallas tax layoffs - 9 in BTS (4 SM, 2 mgr, 3 staff). Int and SALT no layoffs yet but expecting EOW.
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.
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....
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!
Serious question: should I do anything in response to a SM trying his damnedest to get me fired without cause?
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
IM PROBABLY GETTING FIRED SOON... I think the senior manager is gonna fire me as soon as I finish this engagement..fk him WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF WINNING A SUIT FOR WRONGFUL dismissal against firm 😡
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🤣
I asked a SM once how do you view job security in consulting? He said Consulting has the 'ultimate job security' and that industry is very cyclical and always experiences layoffs. Agree or disagree?
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.
Anyone doing the Elevate35 virtual membership? Do you recommend it? Sorry if this has been discussed, I did a search and nothing came up.
Long-term Big Law attorneys who haven't succumbed to burnout: how do you cope with working virtually everyday? I already eat healthy and exercise. I just want to know what I can do to ensure that I am able to maintain my velocity. My days have blurred together at this point from working everyday. My billables are great (+/- 200 hours/month). I'm getting good reviews. I just don't want to end up burning out in a year or two. Thank you!
Quarantine confirmed my decision to not have kids. I can’t imagine being homebound with one all these months - seems like hell on earth.
Anyone drinking the fucked up coolaid on the FCU all hands call? All I have been hearing is freaking buzzwords and no actionable thoughts... fantastic leadership!!!
How many of you are sending your kids to childcare facilities? What's has been your experience so far?
Has anyone transitioned into a product marketing or project management role? If so, how were you able to it?
90 days in, and I’m on PIP. I’m also working on my cpa...what is the best course of action? I feel like I’m working hard but not smart...what do I do 😰
Wondering where the disconnect between clients and timing around deliverables comes from. More and more in hearing that agencies aren't working fast enough, even when working at breakneck speed.
I cheated (emotionally) on my SO and we are going through a break up. It’s really rough. I truly love him and I know I should leave him alone and move on. We had a tumultuous relationship at the end but I can’t stop feeling so bad and guilty. Ugghhh.
Does anyone knows if ROKU fire sticks work with a regular smart TV? I have a hisense UHD 4K so wanted to check..
