PwC 🐠 - I’m looking to move back to US firm (NYC). SA level. What are my odds for getting a L-1 visa? and how is the current climate at PwC US (eg layoffs, downturn, etc)? I used to be in FS.
Don't want to do any work. Don't want to quit. Don't want to get fired. How do I square this circle? 🤔🤔🤔
If you are not married or without your own family, would you move back with your parents if you have been laid off? Or would you dip into savings / unemployment to keep the lights on?
Is it possible that massive layoffs, already expected, could just mean big numbers but not big pain like 2008 - 2009? Hear me out, the pain of 2008 was that there were large layoffs for months (cont)
What are partners hearing about the need to do furlough/layoffs? Heard of Deloitte and Accenture laid off/furloughs already within certain practice areas
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Once laid off by a specific employer, do people ever go back to work for that same employer? For example, all the people laid off from Deloitte, will they ever work for Deloitte again in the future? Assuming there were performance issues.
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
PPD on my project acknowledging the PDM people on this TSA project are staff augmentation ppl who will be laid off when project is over. Said having them allows us to (contd)
How many times have you been laid off in your career? How have you bounced back each time?
If you got fired, would you care?
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
If you were to be laid off or fired today. How long do you think it take the average person to find a née job?
Anybody get laid off in NYC? Can't imagine losing my job and being forced to pay this ridiculous rent
The only shortlists I care about right now are the ones finance is making. Congrats you are not being laid off and have moved to the final round of judging.
If anyone deserves to have layoffs, it’s those folks in TSA - Bunch of lazy people standing around and whiling their time chatting.
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US. I consider myself extremely talented in the tech field and have contributed to many well used libraries and frameworks but I can’t even get an interview anywhere I apply. Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
Currently on H1-B and employed. Expecting to be laid off soon. Can I go from H1-B to H4, search for a job and come back to H1-B? (Spouse is on H1-B as well but no i-40)?
Do you ever wish you get fired?
Big 4 Fish. Which company would you say offers the best health insurance? It seems like PwC’s plans offered are mediocre at best. Is it like this across the big 4 or is PwC the odd man out here?
How much nonbillable time is too much? I’m a second associate at a midsized firm and I have 30-50 non billable hours each month. An associate at another firm told me this was really high. Thoughts?
What’s the best way to make a roll off plan? Any components to include other than proposed timeline and resources taking your responsibilities? Planning to switch groups.
How many people’s jobs would you absorb before requesting your role be re-evaluated/leveled/comp adjusted? I am already doing one person’s job when we decided not to backfill them when they left and just got nominated to take over someone else’s responsibilities while they are out on a multi-month leave. I could handle this if I was an individual contributor but I also have a significant team I’m managing and the additional responsibilities are coming at their expense which is unfair to them.
I’ve been going on interviews for product / owner and scrum master roles and the feedback I get “we feel you don’t have as much experience working with a team. For example, UX and QA.” I’m confused bc in my projects I had to do those roles (though they were smaller scale) How do I convince companies I’m capable?
Google contacted me via LI about a strategy and operations role. I saw on LI that of my 30 business school friends who work at Google, 0 are in S&O. Why do you think this is the case? It could be random chance, but is S&O low paid, or otherwise unattractive for MBA grads for a different reason? 🤔
Setting up a 401k for the first time. Did you decide to do pre-tax or post-tax? Why did you decide that? Retirement savings and options are all overwhelming!
How do you respectfully approach the subject of declining work for a client with your boss? I have am extremely ideologically opposed to the idea of it and I don’t want to compromise my morals
Anyone here work in agile framework for product builds and also successfully thread in client feedback? Would love to hear how some agencies approach agile with clients + design teams.
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
I hate that “this needs more diversity” is code for add more black people...🤦🏾♀️ 😥when will people realize that diversity is not just black and white!
Just found out that my SO is going camping this weekend and I am SO EXCITED to have the house all to myself this weekend 😂. Covid has given us wayy too much forced time together 🙈
Hi everyone, so I am in need of advice.. I want to pivot into Data Analytics or BA but I have no experience.. I am taking the IBM data Analytics cert on Coursera to build up my resume. As a hiring manager or decision maker what would you like to see in someones resume? What are some courses I would need to take? Or how can I stand out? Like SQL or Python courses in Udemy?
Day 3 after a endoscopic brow lift and eyelid surgery. I’m too bruised to go anywhere or be seen on zoom. Surgery was to improve my peripheral vision being hampered by my lids. I didn’t realize how angry-intense looking this happy looking woman had become. Anyone considering this procedure? I don’t look intense anymore.
