Would you be willing to take a demotion for more money?
My boss keeps saying cryptic things that has me feeling like I am at risk of being laid off. Funny enough, today a friend reached out to me about an in-house position at her company. It seems ok and there is a chance I would be able to get a $5k or so raise in pay, but the position would be a huge title demotion for me from a mid-level strategist with 6 yrs experience to more entry-level coordinator role. Is it worth it?
Hi all! I’m a from R/GA NY who recently got laid off. If y’all know of any open strategist positions or anything equivalent(ish) on the client side pls send my way!
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
Are there any agencies in NY hiring a strategist during the pandemic? I heard many are getting laid off :(
Say you got laid off as a junior strategist and, to make ends meet, you took a job in project management. How would you get more strategy experience? What do you do if you’re in between skill levels?
I’ve been laid off due to lost business. Struggling to find junior strategist positions and agencies that hire at that level, not many do. Should I stick with what I enjoy or consider account?
Digital strategist with tons of experience soup-to-nuts. At this for more years than I care to think. Any tips on finding opportunities client side? It’s only a matter of time before layoffs start
I'm struggling - I used to love my job not only because the work was interesting, but because I truly enjoyed my coworkers. But for the last year or so, the culture has become toxic due to layoffs...
So, I gave my agency an advanced 4 week notice of my departure so they could have time to plan for my replacement and the team wouldn’t be left in a lurch, and now they’re deciding that my last day will be two weeks earlier. That doesn’t feel right. It feels like I’m being fired for quitting. An agency full of good people you thought were your friends turned out to be all about business and numbers. Lesson learned. Never give an advanced notice.
New Analyst here - What does it mean to get fired for poor performance? Do they do that without ever responding to your calls for feedback from project leadership or asked by you to step it up? Cont..
In the S&O practice and have not been staffed since mid March. Since then been doing 50-60 hrs a week on BD (I’m a Manager for reference). Utilization was around 100% back in March currently 70%. Great reviews in Lead liked by colleagues etc. However the past few weeks have been quite depressed as I’m worried I’ll be laid off. Took a week off to take a mental break but can’t seem to relax at all (lockdown + lack of childcare isn’t helping) should I start updating my resume?
Got a few emails this week about PwC looking to hire, specifically looking for assurance associates and seniors. I know there’s been some layoffs in B4 recently, so if you’re interested, message me and we can talk referral.
I'm thinking I won't be getting promoted if not laid off at the end Q2 or sooner. What are some good exit ops for an associate with 2 yoe in tech consulting? Exp in Cloud, PMO, IT Risk, and SoD.
Sebior associate just got stealth fired from a V10 (i.e., there's no business case to promote you in October out of the associate pool because of COVID). Will likely be given a formal recommendation to look elsewhere in September but it seems clear their mind is made up. Any advice? Is there any value in considering an employment lawyer re severance etc? Not sure whether to apply now for jobs ideally starting early next year or to wait and take some time off completely.
My firm pays staff & seniors hourly, with 1.5x pay for overtime. Firm just cut our hours from the normal 58-60 down to 40 a week for the foreseeable future. Should I be concerned about layoffs?
CCTC including all benefits is 16.57 with 8.3 YOE, primarily focused on Manual Testing.
Is it worth looking for another opportunity?
I am afraid after seeing layoffs news of EPAM, Publicis Sapient & most of the other companies calling employees in the office.
I love my WFH in PwC India & base location of Kolkata. & the best thing is stability in PwC India, they never lay off!!
Ralph Watson fired from CP+B.
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!
Seeing all these Deloitte "tellyourstory" posts on LinkedIn and no one is telling their story about the forced pay cuts or unnecessary layoffs.
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
Laid off after Thanksgiving. 54. Not done yet. Plenty to offer. In Detroit but ready and able to move anywhere. AD/CD. Hangin in there. How bout you?
Agency laid off all producers, is now having BA produce. BA texts laid off employees for vendor recs. 🙄 (the eye roll is at the agency, not the BA manager who didn’t sign up for this...)
When I was at Accenture I thought ACN Strategy was the top of the top but I didn’t go to a fancy school so imagine how hard it was to network my way in. Then they stopped transfers because of COVID and I was laid off despite all of the good reviews I had calling for me to be promoted. I was almost happy with 100k just to be a senior analyst in Strategy.
Today I just signed my offer at a tier 2 firm and I’m making over 180k. Thank you Accenture for the lay off. EVERYONE KEEP PUSHING!!!!!!!!
30 M 🐠. Any F 🐠 want to talk? Let’s chat.
Just started researching K beauty and I’m so lost with all the options out there! Any recs for a noob? Should I just shop on soko glam? Or get one of those subscriptions? How do I keep this low cost?
Going to a few apartment showings. What type of questions should you recommend asking? How do you start the negotiation for less rent / a month or two free?
So for quite some time I’ve been doing my responsibilities as well as several others including Workday security admin. I asked for a raise which admittedly amounted to around 40% but that’s a fair rate based on market, current responsibilities and would bring me only to the AVERAGE salary of people with my title in the same company
The approved only 10% and a title promotion, which brings me still 20k short of my target- I probably know the answer but it’s time to move on isn’t it
Senior Staff Consultant (Engineering) in a M->HCOL with 15 YOE currently making 95k. I feel I am underpaid. I am from another country working in the USA on an O1 visa. Can it be that my company is "using" that to their advantage? How do I approach this conversation? When I signed and agreed to my salary in March 2021 before coming over, costs in the USA in general (especially homes) were significantly lower than what they are now, effectively changing the value of my salary significantly.
Does anyone have an Athleta friends and family code they’re willing to share with me? :)
I just got a new job offer and currently going through the background check with hireright and it’s taking FOREVER! Of course no record or anything bad so I’m like what’s the hold up! I guess I should mention I no longer enjoy working at my current firm so maybe that’s why I’m being impatient! Lol. Has anyone else dealt with this?
Can anyone share the interview experience of technical consultant role in Salesforce..
It would help me to prepare for the interview
It feels like everything in my life is crashing down around me. I feel suffocated, stressed, anxious, and sad. I'm not sleeping well, and so that isn't helping. My sun needs to come back out.
Does the best performing decade was also great for you. How much close you got to your retirement goals in last 10 yrs

Whirlpool must be handing out bags to grab the amount of people that they’ve been getting, right?
