Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
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?
Layoffs yesterday 😭 We had a brutal round of layoffs before break too and we all thought we were safe for a while. I still have my job but the survivor’s guilt is real.
Layoffs are coming
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
What do the Partners on here think of how these layoffs are being handled? Very curious (P1, where are you???)
What is the EY severance package ?
90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
In the midst of all these layoffs, I'd just like to point out that I've worked for FCB Health for 15 years (now at Area 23 for last 6 years) and in my time here, there has not been a single layoff.

Leaving my gig. Have 55k in Roth 401k and 5k in traditional 401k. What should I do? Roll the 55k to my Roth IRA and then the 5k to my new employers traditional 401k?
Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.
For those of you who attended an MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks!
We’re finally going engagement ring shopping tomorrow!! I love the look of diamonds but I just can’t justify the expense at this point in our lives. Any suggestions on alternative stones?
Does anyone know anyone in the Cornell one tech mba? If Faang type companies don’t work out, do you think it’d still be possible to get into ib or mbb with this degree? Also, what are some other....
Looking for recs for best bang for the Bonvoy points hotels outside the US? I found the Rayong Marriott for only 17,500 points (not sure if it’s nice in person) but that’s what prompted this curiosity
What are typical hourly billable rates from big 4 for external audit services by role? New York or California.
Life insurance: do I need it? Not married (live with LT boyfriend - renting), own 2 investment properties, no kids, early 30s, in Canada. No “dependents”, and my family could pay for final expenses. I’m healthy and insurance is cheap. Should I just get it? Any extra $ if I pass suddenly could go to younger sibling/ family / charity, or to pay off mortgages. What am I missing?
I've had a junior (by level but not age) client resource that has been rude and disrespectful since the day he joined a couple weeks ago. I finally had enough today and told him off in an email and called him out for his disrespectful tone and language. My director (who was also on the email) sent me a ping saying that I wasn't out of line and that it was warranted and he'll handle any reactions stemming from that exchange. Nice to know that he has my back ...continued
Any consultants got their H1b visa this week?
Any insight into Jackson Lewis? Especially the smaller offices? Do Associates generally get promoted to Partner? Do they match 401K contributions? Quality of life? PTO?
Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.
