I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘
I messed up. Told my roommate I would contribute to pay for a small couch since she sold the one she brought to our apartment with her for $ (got laid off). I am 21 and on a crazy strict budget. She is showing me $500-800 couches, while I was thinking of Facebook marketplace couches. If I could, I would give her the $ in the blink of an eye, but I literally CAN’T 😭 How do I tell her this after I already said I would? I know, I messed up here - salvageable?
How do you roll with the punches? When I make even a small mistake that anyone could make my mind immediately goes to "well that's that, I'm getting fired"
Layoffs at DH Philly today...
Here is how KPMG handled an announcement today re: a RIF: We’ll be laying off people. We can’t tell you when. can’t tell you how many people. We can’t give you any details. But we WILL send you an email after this call with FAQs and the severance policy. ...no email was sent. So, now 1,000 employees are going to bed tonight confused and irritated AF.
For severances & layoffs dt are based on performance (although disputes), what does PwC say in reference letter requests asking for reason for resignation and can employee be rehired in future?
How will the new H1B bill affect consulting? Will everyone making less than 100,000 on H1B be fired if the bill passes?
What's with all the Deloitte lay offs? Is that normal there or is it just a bad year? I haven't been hearing about layoffs from anyone else but Deloitte so I'm curious
Has anyone ever added/negotiated a clause guaranteeing favorable terms in the event of a layoff as part of their employment contract?
Anybody get laid off in NYC? Can't imagine losing my job and being forced to pay this ridiculous rent
Feeling really pissed off. Was surfing the web and saw the CD that fired me just had a new good spot on adsoftheworld
Have you ever been fired from a job? What are your strategies for getting back on for feet?
Are the Deloitte layoffs happening in federal or commercial? I'm in fed and haven't heard a thing about layoffs
Have you ever negotiated severance in a job offer? Not planning on getting laid off, but no one ever is.
Saw exited out being used. Coached out is already neutral enough. Just interesting that we don't call it what it is. Released, fired, let go
TFW a "senior copywriter" writes "your" instead of "you're". Proper usage: Get your shit together or you're fired.

If you have a pending I485 and your FAD is current, how do you answer the question on needing future immigration sponsorship? Technically I don’t, but that’s assuming that I’ll either use the AOS EAD or my GC will be approved before needing to renew my visa…..life of an immigrant!
Asking for some advice on an offer received… my current company base gives me 112k, 9 holidays, 20 pto days, 6% match on 401k and employee share purchase plan, individual bonus up to 8.5%. The new offer received is as follows: 110k base, 11 holidays, unlimited pto days, 25k in RSUs vested 100% after 4 years, no 401k match, annual performance bonus up to 7.5% with possibility to exceed it, basic medical, dental, vision plan covered by company. Thoughts on if the external offer sounds competitive?
Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.
So I’ve finally booked a good amount of PTO and got it approved. I’m stressing about taking the PTO. Is this what peak burnout/consulting feels like?
Deloitte - do you expense dinners when working late? New to consulting so curious as to how this works
Is there a bonus offer when I transfer SPG points to Marriott rewards? I thought I read somewhere about it, but unable to find the article. I need 45000 MR to book my stay
Just joined this bowl and I find it hilarious that there isn’t a single post. 😂 sounds accurate for my Covid dating life thus far.
Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any. Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!
Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
Everywhere I go they just want female candidates! Seems like there is reverse gender biah happening
Anyone else heard about SPG just getting "unnamed source's" offer for $76/share? Does this mean merger with Marriott is off? I wonder if it's the Chinese group that bought Hilton luxury brand.
My Canvas account glitched. 4 years of classes disappeared today, including all modules (units & lessons) I created. On top of that, my planning copies I work on during the summer. 😭😱🤢😡
Anyone have insight on Strategy roles at PepsiCo? Interesting work/culture/comp/growth/etc.
