The worst part of working overtime right after the longest tax season of your life is your spouse getting pissed at you for working. I’m a tax manager who has been the acting tax Director since my firm fired our last Director the week before Christmas. Work has been hell for the last 7 months and now on top of everything else, I’m in charge of payroll (we fired our payroll department in January but still kept like 25 clients for fun) and returns are due Friday. I’m depressed and exhausted.

In 08-09, layoffs were understood, but this time, it's different. A company that enacts layoffs now is basically commuting a death sentence to employees, thus becoming the executioner.

Layoffs in investment banking are making me very nervous esp now that Goldman Sachs has announced that 8% of its workforce will be laid off.

Can we expect something similar to take place in management consulting?

Talking specifically because I’m nervous about my McKinsey & Company offer getting rescinded though I’m sure it’s consultants who are advising these banking layoffs :/

Everyone i know plans to join TCS as retirement plan. Everyone believes that job is very safe and one can survive as long as they want without doing much. I find this unrealistic as at the end of the day things have to get delivered , quality has to be maintained.
Is TCS really a semi-government and very safe job? I am sure they would be firing people in bench and over performance issues too.

Has anyone gone from the private sector into Air Force JAG? And, if so, was it a positive experience, or otherwise? Curious as I’m in my mid-30s and getting the itch to do things before I’m too old.

Have a few friends who are Marine JAGs but I’m guessing the different branches have different experiences.
