Any advice for lateraling as first-year business lit associate? I’m not getting any work at my current firm due to partner hoarding and overstaffing. Can I lateral this early or should I wait until I’m inevitably fired for low hours? If I should lateral now, what reasons for leaving should I give interviewers? Should I tell the truth or will it look bad on me?
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)...
Went to HR to complain about horrible manager. Will I get fired or let go? I was just speaking up for myself.
Gotta love how Peloton laid off 2500 employees to lower their overhead then generously gave them free 1 Year subscriptions to boost their numbers before a buyout. 🤦♂️😡
What would you do? I was recently reached out to by an exec I worked for at another agency. He’s at a new agency and looking for an EA to assist him, the new president and another exec. However the agency itself is not doing well- no new biz wins, big layoffs recently, terrible reviews on Glassdoor. I like my current agency enough, however, very much don’t like the 2 execs I assist. Would you go rather work for good execs at a bad agency? Or stay at a decent agency but awful execs?
Anyone else hear about layoffs coming for S& people with low bill-ability? Heard this from a PwCer...any specific industry or region targets?

Hey everyone. Feeling terribly down as I was laid off today. In the dc area and wanting to know what companies don’t have a hiring freeze right now. Worked primarily in consulting and as a BA. Thanks
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.
I just found out I’ll be getting laid off in a month. I’ve contemplated freelancing for a while but haven’t worked on more than 1-2 small clients at a time on the side of work. How do I know when it’s the right time to take the plunge into freelancing?
Planning to visit Tyler with my family. Any thoughts on where to get AirBnB (downtown or south Tyler). I’ve never been. I prefer downtown (Azalea) but want to make sure it’s safe.
Any stories of initially not looking for/wanting a relationship but then meeting someone and changing your mind?
Resharing because it’s so appropriate.
How do your organizations handle parking reimbursement with a hybrid model? We have an office downtown and currently can be reimbursed up to a certain amount as long as we are in the office 75% of the time. The challenge is the burden this places on managers to manually track days employees are working in office. As we grow this seems like a big waste of time.
Been accepted to a top 25 school for their professional program (part time). Ranked top 10 in finance. Are scholarships uncommon for professional students? I heard it’s mainly for full time students? Not sure if I should I decline and attempt other schools next year and try to get scholarships?

Does anyone feel like the AEs crushing their numbers generally walk into a great account versus working really hard on prospecting? I’ve worked for Microsoft and Servicnow as a Strategic AE and I rarely saw the successful AEs (+200% attainment) doing any prospecting or needing BDR.
The narrative has changed: from being panned for his response to coronavirus, to becoming the "American hero who beat the virus", and "will MAGA", since he dealt with it "personally".
"I got Covid" was a hoax that democrats will regret believing in when the traitor wins the 2nd term:
Trump's campaign claims his bout with COVID will help him beat Biden
