Don't panic.

There is no consistent time frame so don't panic. Sometimes (rarely) it is as short as a month, sometimes it is indefinite. They should give you a 2 week warning at least

like

In some practices it is 4 2 2. First warning after 4 weeks, second warning after another 2, with termination coming another 2 weeks after that. Have you received a warning yet?

What office?

What if i take pto would that delay the layoff?

PTO won't save you; you need to get on a project.

Exactly which week do you get laid off if not on a project

Pto will delay but not save you. It resets your availability calendar so you won't show as being on the bench for five weeks, you'll show as coming available as of your pto end date. Will buy you 3 weeks at best though especially during the holidays

I havent!

My practice if u get the warning u have 4 weeks

What city u based out of?

The time is nigh

You can take 5 if you run out of Pto

I’m considering leaving my job to move closer to family. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on whether that is a sign of weakness/would make me unemployable later on. For context, a family member died in January and I had not been able to see them for 2 years bc of the distance and then Covid. Other immediate family members also have health conditions I’m concerned about. Working remotely for my current position is not an option.

I took this role ~10 months ago and I LOVE my direct reports, but I’m really struggling with my manager and leadership.

I don’t feel like leadership or my manager are taking them seriously. It makes my day to day incredibly difficult because I feel as though I have project whiplash vs getting to focus.

Dear all,

How's it like working for PwC India as SAP Functional Senior Associate?
I have a 5.3y work ex with ACN, as a FSCM consultant (L10 currently, was assured of a L9 effective March, but declined due to growing poor culture within ACN).
Got an offer from PwC India
Current TC: 9.5 LPA.
PwC Offered TC: 19 LPA.
IBM Offered Fixed: 17 LPA
IBM would be a smooth drive, but skeptical to join PwC given the WLB issues, as a lot of folks say.

Any thoughts, comments would be really helpful!
