As I get older and have less of the rose tinted glasses perspective that I did coming into the industry, I've been slowly becoming more worried about the potential for layoffs (not firing). I feel like it's normal and bound to happen to most people due to factors outside of their control, whether they're at an agency, client side etc. I think this comes from a deep rooted trauma as a child where my single parent became unemployed and we were homeless for a bit. But is this a normal fear?
I got laid off today and I’m scared
Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
What are the weirdest reasons you have heard for people being laid-off? Heard someone getting laid off because of submitting wack expenses.
Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF:
We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy.
...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.
Ouch. If true this is just dirty. Can anyone from pwc confirm?

Is ACN recruiting on hold and/or have/had layoffs? I interviewed but things then just stopped.
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client?
Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
What do recruiters think of people who’ve been previously laid off at an agency due to loss of clients? Since it’s a common thing in this industry, does it cast a bad light on the applicant?
Have an offer to start at Deloitte in July in Org Transformation consulting. If it doesn’t get pushed out because of the virus, is it a good time to switch firms in July? Concerned that layoffs may be imminent if I am so new to the firm. I will be coming in at the Consultant level if that matters.
Meeting with just HR tomorrow, likely to get fired. I thought there would be a partner involved but guess not? Performance issues.
For those of you thankfully still employed but working insane hours with a reduced team due to layoffs and unable to use your PTO — has anyone tired to get theirs rolled over?
Projects are sized with an aggressive timeline. However clients will take their time to respond, meet since they know they won’t get fired easily for not prioritizing the project (as they have the actual day job to focus on). How does Partner just blindly accept this fact and still want an aggressive timeline? On paper they’d say it’s client issue but still want it done ‘on time’, on budget.
Folks at EY? Did any of you hear/ know of anyone getting laid off at our's? Several posts on layoff just getting on my nerves.. 😕
We’ve been hearing about layoffs. Any companies you know for sure are in hiring freezes?
Just heard of the story of a senior who was fired because she was interviewing at a new firm, and this new firm called her current firm for references. Obviously they (cont’d)...

Is going to Milestones worth it? I’ve been for other promotions and wondering how this is different. Not sure I want to mingle with such a huge group of travelers in a COVID world, and have to figure out childcare if I bring my spouse. What did others with kids do?

How is Grey NY these days???
Im asking this everywhere - is anyone in a virtual book club that is accepting new members?
Hello all! (1) What's Google's post-interview process like?
Just finished interviewing with team, was then contacted by the recruiter for a quick-call within an hour after the last interview. I wasn't free so pushed it another day. (2) Is this too fast to get contacted - meaning rejection and feedback? (3) If fortunately not, is pushing for a start-date of 3 months later from offer date (due to personal reasons) a reasonable ask?
How do people in their late 20s-30s even date? I just started looking and it’s already getting very exhausting to swipe and go out and swipe and go out… I think the older we are, the pickier we get.
I made sweet potato brownies while drinking a chilled glass of red because this week has sucked.
