My husband was affected by covid related layoffs this morning from a cybersecurity product company. He is a principal software engineer with 9+ years of front end experience (angular, ember, node, html css). Located in Virginia but open to move anywhere and would need immigration support. Any pointers to companies that are hiring right now / a referral from a kind internet stranger would be appreciated. Thanks!
What’s the company culture like at Coca-Cola? Do you see many people get laid off ? I’m thinking of applying for a software engineer position.
Ahhhh, who is still hiring?? Got laid off at the beginning to pandemic, and need a new job badly. I'm a Software Engineer with 5 years of experience.
When a Big 4 decides to do layoffs who will most and least likely to be on the chopping block first? Low performers? A2s? Employees that are paid too much for their level? Etc
I was laid off from my last job and just started a new one, but I’m already going through anxiety worrying that every meeting that pops up w my manager is going to result in getting laid off again. 😐
Few people in the world make more money than Mark Reed, John Wren, Michael Roth or Arthur Sadoun. Cant they offer anything to avoid layoffs?
Would you rather work for company A or B? Key factors to keep in mind: flexibility of working remote, growth and promotion opportunities, stability and not being laid off randomly.... Continued..
My account partner is doing a terrible job and will be getting fired—timeline TBD. Given we are living in a pandemic, I want to give them a heads up to start job hunting. How inappropriate is that? How could I do it?
If you were recently laid off or looking for a new position: we are hiring for two management consultant professionals with at least 5 years client facing experience. Please DM me if interested—thanks!
Sometimes all you have to do to feel better is to get out of the front door. To all of the people who were laid off, remember that. One more day!
My day has arrived. Today, I, a Tech Advisory Consultant, was smacked by a surprise afternoon layoff call. I was assured my PA review was nowhere near bottom 5%, but the machine of Accenture has inscrutable ways of determining High Performance. All ends are beginnings,
HELP! Recently promoted M1, and a very low-performing staff is threatening to go to HR with harassment allegations as a means to protect herself from getting fired. Suggestions?
Sooooo... I guess I'm outing myself again by posting this, but in light of all the recent layoff drama, I wrote a hopefully-motivational post for those who have been let go: http://www.happyhealthydeb.com/ponder/2016/6/26/the-truth-about-being-laid-off (continued)
Intern hire set to start Oct (Healthcare/MC)... All the layoff posts have me a bit concerned, and has me considering other options. Am I overreacting?
Friend was laid off last year and said you get 2 months severance for every year with the firm -- can anyone validate? Is this the case for all levels?
Somebody just told me it’s weird to call a woman “ma’am”... is that a Northern thing? I grew up in FL and live in ATL now, and I’ve always thought it was normal/polite. Maybe it’s a southern thing?
If you have 15 days paid vacation every year... do you always use it? -- I often do and sometimes I feel like I get side-eye for taking time off.
Started career in consulting, went to industry, now back in consulting as a senior industry expert. No sales targets. Being heavily recruited by another firm to join as a partner and build a practice. 100% comfortable with everything in the role except selling. I have great rolodex and close relationships with many C-level execs but have never approached them to sell services. Any partners have advice on how to start building a book of business when you haven't been a seller?
Green comms/media planner here. So far, this job seems like it's 90% answering emails and tracking invoices. Is that really the extent of this role? Or am I missing something here?
Need advice. I’m a 2nd year Analyst making $80K/yr. I contribute 6% to my 401k, $100/mth to a ETF index fund, and save ~10k year. How is my saving strategy? Am I doing pretty well?
We will be relocating to the southwest (exact city still TBD as we finalize job offers) this summer. While we’re not trying to FIRE, we follow the tenets. I’m really worried about a potential (contd)
Aren't SPG Points supposed to hit your account right after checking out? I don't see mine for the last two stays. Just confirming before I call them up.
How do interviewers verify that you aren’t just completely making up your project experience at your firm if they can’t check due to confidentiality reasons?
How can I be a role model for my bright eyed staff when I myself am burned out, unmotivated, and generally miserable in this role? Hard not to let show the emotional toll the stress has taken on me.

How does Big 4 Accounting firms get away with working people for 12+ hours consistently without violating any labor laws?
Why should I get an MBA? Honestly asking. I feel like I’m a high performer who has hit my target promotions so if I can make PPMD (or your firms equivalent) without further education why wouldn’t I?
Going through the interview process - made the mistake of putting down an expected salary early on. Do I have to stick to this or will I still be able to negotiate later on?
