Deloitte peeps: is there a typical time of the year when people get laid off (e.g., after year-end, before year-end, any time on the beach)?
For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.
On tough days, ask yourself, what’s the worse that could happen? Bad review, getting fired, embarrassing yourself. There’s always opportunity to right the wrongs and if not then find another job!
Are there any agencies that have not gone through any layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts, hiring freezes etc? Shops that are, so far still financially functioning as normal? I know squarespace is one.
Why do we do it? I’ve been laid off from every advertising job I’ve ever had. I was one of the first people in my graduating class to get hired. I worked on TV before any of my peers. And was handpi
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
At a new firm and right away I knew I wasn’t going to get along with one partner. Had a conflict with one of his associates early on. Everyone else is cool. Got into it with the partner and he told me he didn’t need my help on his matters anymore. The cool associates are still asking if I can pitch in cause they’re swamped. I’m a nice guy (despite what the partner and uncool associate may say), so I’m helping out. I’m the guy that gets fired and shows up the next day. Results TBD.
Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.
Got a great offer at another consulting firm but worried about prospect of getting laid off after joining given current climate. Thoughts?
If you were laid off or fired would you apply for your current job? I was laid off from Big 4 audit in 2016 after working there for 2 years and it was one of the best things to happen to me. 1. It allowed me to reflect and decide what was important in my next career. 2. Losing a job isn’t as frightening as it seems. 3. Accountants have major job security as I got a job offer within 2 weeks. When you’re miserable at work ask yourself would you apply for your current job?
After the layoffs we had, most people were offered a 90 day notice period, during which they have to be on-call, but there are those that get put on multiple accounts (continued)

Present CTC: 24LPA INR Experience: 5.5 years Organisation Name: Khoros Designation: Senior Data Analyst Past organisations: Deloitte, TCS Expected CTC is my current one.

For those of you who have been laid off, what do your days look like? Someone told me to expect 3-4 months at LEAST before finding another job
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
Curious for thoughts on why a firm who laid off associates last year—many of whom “just happened” to be parents—is celebrated by Diversity Lab and other organizations for its diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts? Or, in any event, why does anyone in the Big Law industry put up with such blatant levels of hypocrisy?
There was a payroll error and my severance was significantly overpaid and now they want to correct it. Am I obligated to return that money?
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
Laid off and unemployed for a while. How bad is it if I portray myself on job applications as still working at my former job?
Deloitte OCM laid off consultants and analysts. A recruiter contacted me about a position that listed Deloitte OCM methodology and ChangeScout experience as a plus. It is a contractor to hire position that can be remote now and into the future. The rate is too low for me and it seems@more on target at the analyst to SC level. DM me for Deets.

A huge project of mine died a year back, and I just saw the exact idea on adweek. My coworker who was on the project took it to a new agency and made the identical spot. Is there anything I can do? Is this just part of the industry? I’m fucking livid
How do you spend you bench time? Feel like I should take adventage of the downtime but worry that I might not seem proactive enough for optics.
As data becomes more central to the creative industries, who makes the decisions? The designer or the client?
Heard Deloitte will start adjusting salary by city starting next year....will they be adjusting people down if they are currently overpaid (relatively)?
New rule: if your project gets shortlisted, post a link to the actual work or case study, not a dumb square the rest of your connections couldn't care less about. Thanks for coming to my TED talk. #oneshow #clios
I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
FML. Had an onsite at a tech firm. While walking out with the interviewer, bumped into a bunch of puzzled associates and a manager from my practice. This is their client. Fked if I don't get the offer
Looking at getting into a different consulting role and am curious about bench programs. Are there benches at: Affirma Consulting, Bridge Partners, Logic 20/20, Simplicity or Unify Consulting?
Baseless speculation: F500 CEOs were politely told by government to ground all non-essential travel and prepare for as many employees as possible to work from home.
Fishes from price, kpmg, Deloitte. It’s that time again. Bonus percentages in consulting. Please share for level, rating, bonus percentages please! EYs will be released in 2 weeks.
Is anyone having luck with teaching writing online? My parents are saying it’s like pulling teeth and I don’t have any more luck doing our normal routines during our virtual lessons.
So true. I have gotten a lesson for life.
How much devastation is about to hit the consulting industry? It is one of the most travel focused industries to exist.
