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
Happy layoff hunger games
What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
First time in an accounting firm… Is it normal to want to quit after starting a couple months ago? 😂 About to start doing the bare minimum and hope I don’t get fired.
My agency will not fire a notoriously lazy and indecisive woman ECD through multiple rounds of layoffs because of the optics
If my firm violated employment law and now I want to leave, how do I negotiate/value a severance?
Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
I sent in mail message to recruiter directly, and they do not get back. Is it because I’m not a good fit or most recruiters are laid off during this COVID-19? I mean, some positions seem like perfect fit for me.
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
If you are laid off and cannot find a job doing your day job, what will you do? I am trying to prepare a plan b and c. My car is too old for Uber eats etc. curious your thoughts.
Got laid-off in November and started at a boutique firm two month ago and I'm just so bored. Work is boring and there isn't much structure for anything. Missing D today.
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
What triggers layoffs at agencies besides Covid? Losing accounts? Pretty fresh in the industry but I see convos about people getting laid off & I feel like I wouldn’t see it coming if it were to happen.
Have you ever been rolled off a project suddenly? Should I be paranoid of a 4 rating or being laid off.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
Today is my first day of my first IVF cycle. After getting the green light to start IVF based on my negative COVID test, baseline ultrasound and bloodwork, I feel relieved that this day has come after unsuccessfully trying to conceive naturally and with IUI, and even excited now. LET'S DO THIS!
Anyone have the nectar mattress and think it's good? All the work from home and not in a hotel bed is making me realize I need a new mattress

Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
My live-in partner is a first year at one of the schools I’m applying to R1. I’m torn on whether to mention that on my application? There’s a place to do so (on the same page where you check whether you’re applying WITH a partner), but I’m not sure what impact it will have. On the one hand I want them to know I’ll definitely go if I do get in since we’re already here, but I don’t want them to think I’m only applying because he’s there (which I’m not, it’s just a great school).
Are Expert salaries completely cohort based or is there is room for negotiation. The base salary recruiter quoted is almost same as what i am currently making.McKinsey & Company

What does your firm do for evening meals if you work late? Most of our offices bring in a meal couple of nights a week but will no reimburse if in town and working late at a client.
Got an interview request from Morgan Stanley for Prime Brokerage Client Service Account manager. Can anyone shed some light about what the role entails? Pros and cons? I’m currently in retail banking and would love to know what skills I can reference during the interview. Morgan Stanley
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
Thoughts on working in admissions for a top 20 MBA program? Want to eventually work 100% remote and feel like a move to admissions consulting would be super easy after 5-10 years.
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
This to Burnetters - so what's the role of the global President when the local CEO's don't report to you? When the global president has no say in the matters of any Burnett office in the world?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
