1:1 with practice MD - no agenda. Here comes the layoff

I had a counselee in this situation several years ago. They gave me a heads up including full details of severance package they would provide but I was not allowed to share with counselee. Counselee had a meeting scheduled with an MD and a person from HR. Meeting got pushed out once due to the MD having a client meeting. Then my counselee got staffed the day before his rescheduled meeting. Meeting was cancelled and he never found (at least definitively) that he was a day from being laidoff. He still works here 5 years later.

OP, I've been here a long time and this is not how we do lay offs. Also, did you receive an email from HR yet? You usually get two warning emails from HR - first email at the 4 week mark saying you should get staffed asap before getting "counseled out". Another email a week or two later with the same message and then when it's time, you'll have a meeting invite with an MD AND HR in it.

Sorry OP. If so, there is life after layoff. Been there. One door closes, and another opens. Try not to take it personally.

It was a layoff - low utilization. Sweet package though - 4 months severance and cobra

@K1: it's hard to see it objectively in that seat, but it's business. Having said that, it hurts. Good luck and wish you all the best! Here's to hoping it's not a layoff meeting.

But@A1, I can't explicitly say that since I don't know what the meeting is about - his PA just sent me a note saying MD X wants a 1:1 meeting with you - sounds like a layoff meeting, but not 100% sure

Op- wishing you best of luck. I'm on the bench and got an awesome role but now getting push back due to different region. Makes no sense. Penalize us for being on bench and then penalize us for finding roles that are not in region. Utter madness!
