Folks who've been laid off before: how do you keep the anxiety from creeping in anytime you make even a small mistake at the new job? 🙁
Damnit Pwc: every time I check my email you have laid off another one of my teammates. Stop. Just stop.
Has anyone reached out to colleagues who were laid off? I've had a handful who "disappeared" and didn't say goodbye.
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)?
Any reason to be worried about being on the bench in OTT? I know a lot of us are, but worried because of the S&O layoffs, etc. Anyone heard anything?
Just started at an agency out of college last month. The agency is experiencing layoffs and my team was cut in half. I’m not sure that I would want to stay, does it look bad to leave so quickly?
Would really appreciate some positive/funny consulting news considering layoffs etc (no ratings, promotions please)
Thoughts on exiting consulting to Wayfair with everything going on? Seems like they are embracing the remote lifestyle, and pay is good... Wanted to hear from folks on here especially given their layoffs.
Sexism story: ceo calls team into office with org chart in private - points at all the female SVPs "they're really VPs but we call them SVPs for optics, let me know if you need them fired"
Which of the holding companies do you think treats their employees best? I’m thinking pay, promotions, effort to avoid layoffs, etc.
Anyone else concerned about additional layoffs, given that associates of color have historically been the first to go during recessions?
I personally don't believe it, but one of my recently lay-off colleague mentioned that in big 4 (especially Deloitte-KPMG) laid off people of color in their recent lay offs...Mostly Asian-south Asian, I just want to clear my head and wanted to ask this.. Thanks for your input! :(
Financing question - If you get laid off or have a gap in employment, does your 2 year proof of income “clock” (for lack of a better term), restart? Basically asking if you need to have 2 yrs of consecutive W2 income to great loan terms? For context, I was approved for great terms earlier this year but didn’t go thru with a purchase
My best friend found out they’re getting laid off, and I’m not sure how to comfort them sans alcohol...they’ve kind of locked themselves away and my heart is breaking for them, I just want to help 😞
If you're living in an apartment - do you give the staff any kind of holiday bonus/gift? How much do you typically give or what do you get them?
All. A few hours left. Many of you are probably traveling back home after week at client. Feel free to send me more question!
Am in a regional creative council meeting where I’m the only female CD in a room of 10. I guess it’s better than 2 years ago when in a global creative council I was 1/23.
Is it a good sign if my interviewer said they want to move “as fast as possible on this” and my answers were “perfect” and he responded to my thank you email right away or is that just common curtesy? This is my first interview in years so I honestly don’t know.
After watching Untold History of the United States on Netflix, It seems like President Truman and Eisenhower are responsible for everything bad happened/ing in the world
Out of my interview game because my last one was 5 years ago. What kind of questions does a 30-min first round interview with HR usually cover for industry? How should I prepare for this one? Thx
Overheard on the DFW PA : "Passenger who left their wheelchair at the security checkpoint, please return to claim it"
Moving to San Francisco. Where are some less expensive, family friendly areas outside the city within a 45min or so commute?
AA Exec Plat, thinking of switching to Delta since they named Boston a hub. Delta flyers - would you recommend and how hard is it to secure upgrades in / out of BOS?
3 years in media industry - with agecny experience as a planner/strategist. Applied to a NY role called Client Service Manager. What's a good salary range to give them when they ask? $75K-80K?
Has anyone heard of Innerspin? Can’t find much on Glassdoor. A friend had an interview and we’re worried the offer is going to come with shitty pay
Towers offer in hand from senior to manager equivalent. Same salary (mid 6 figures), lower cost of living. Worth it?
Anyone frozen their eggs in Chicago have a doctor they recommend? My OBGYN suggested fertility center of Illinois but they have really shitty reviews.
I feel so undervalued at my job. I work my ass off and pick up other peoples slack, working above my level and still other people get higher praise. I don’t know what to do anymore. I want to give up.
Supposed to hear back about offer "early this week". Too soon to follow up? Anxiety is killing me 😂 interview was one week ago today at small investment firm hiring one analyst (3 final candidates myself included)
Currently 4 years into a strategy consulting job at Accenture/IBM/Cognizant, UGrad was from top 10 liberal arts with economics degree, and hoping to move into product at FAANG or other tech firm in Boston. What steps should I take to get there?
