Negotiating an offer and want a severance package included in the terms from the new employer. What’s a good number for a VP Strategy?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
That awkward moment when a random all staff meeting is called >24 hours before. Who’s getting fired or promoted... reckon I won’t be sleeping tonight. And it’s been one helluva rough year...
Need advice on strategy- got new job and somehow negotiated a sept start date. With the layoffs going on at D, what are the odds I can perform badly enough to get laid off so I can collect severance and take a vacay?
Humor me please. I don’t understand his many people esp. in the US with a college background go months unemployed after being laid off. On LinkedIn I feel like recruiters are often reaching out and there are so many job opportunities. What am I missing?
Can you be laid off if you're on a project?
Will org transformation / human capital see a greater increase in work post virus given the layoffs, etc? Or will companies not want to spend for consulting firms?
Is it noteworthy to have worked in the creative industry for 23 years -18 in advertising, without ever being fired or laid-off? Are there medals or gold watches for that?
Deloitte peeps: is there a typical time of the year when people get laid off (e.g., after year-end, before year-end, any time on the beach)?
ACN fam, aren't we supposed to get paid today? Or did I get fired when I wasn't looking?
Just found out my manager (who many people are frustrated with) got a rating of 2. Does this mean she may get fired? If so, when would that happen?
How bad is it if you get laid off/fired for low performance? Is this career suicide? What happens if you try to get another job?
Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?
For those of you who have been laid off, what do your days look like? Someone told me to expect 3-4 months at LEAST before finding another job
Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?
Is anyone else scared of signing a new apartment lease because they’re unsure if they’re being laid off in the next few months 😅
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
🐠🐠 Wondering how you'd perceive a person in a C-Suite or leadership position: - typically a smooth talker - acts like he was struck by lightning when things don't go his way, though it shouldn't have been a surprise - claims to have low EQ when he causes misunderstandings, yet doesn't take action to resolve it, or get help to raise his EQ - says he doesn't know anything about current events (or ones from a few years ago) or keeps up with news because he only has Netflix, no cable & such
I received an offer for 30k more than I’m making now at Deloitte for Cyber Risk.. what’s the main reason Advisory is a bad choice? Is a Senior Consultant role in this practice a bad place to be from a career growth perspective? I don’t understand the practice structure and am unsure if I’m being misled. I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅
Who else is shaving their head bald at this time to minimize coronavirus spread? Won’t be client facing for at least a few months, enough time to grow it back!
Any insight in to Publicis Health Media or working at Publicis in general? Would you work there over an omnicom / ipg agency if pay was significantly higher ?
What is the executive order mainly expected to do - stop new visa applications or stop travel into the US for existing visa holders, or both?

What is salary range for senior manager in Accenture strategy and consulting India office Specifically in Accenture Applied intelligence team
My client just asked me if I wanted to hear a joke. He said "Accenture" and walked away. Savage.
Started with big 4, now at BDO.. work in IT audit (have had very successful fast tracked career in IT audit) and at Manager rank. Interested in moving over more-so to cyber security type consulting and escaping the IT audit prison (aren’t we all lol). Any advice on education / certificate requirements on how to transition more-so into cyber type space?
I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations. I've received a very good job offer by another Big 4 in the same sector and service but with better career growth opportunities. I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?
Amazon: hiring 33k people. Also amazon: we won’t hire a single person because our interviews are so hard :(
I have an important interview coming up and I’m so nervous I can feel every organ in my body tremble with fear.
Accenture bench is deeeeep. Especially strategy.
Looking to exit to MBB/tier 2 consulting. Do they/you take analysts 1-1.5 years out of undergrad? Will I have to start over or will I be considered an “experienced” BA/Associate?
