How do you handle people’s kids showing up on video meetings? Screaming, kicking, hamming it up, (wasting time.) Everyone else is coo-ing…I’m not a kids person. Heard a technique which is to drop off the call bc you “assume the call is over” (which seems like a great way to get fired especially if it’s a way higher up’s kids - plus it feels rather passive aggressive.) Thoughts?
Any insight from Deloitte folks on the announced layoffs? Has anyone from PwC or KPMG heard anything similar? EY has left the door open for layoffs, but hasn’t laid out specific plans yet. It feels inevitable though. While I don’t think I’m on the chopping block (famous last words), I do worry about the morale impact on my teams and the office in general. Curious to hear other perspectives.
Since Florida is an at-will state, can an individual be fired for a lack of productivity in a physically demanding work environment (if that lack of productivity is due to a heart condition)?
All time best tactical plan briefing & creative kickoff? What blew minds? What fired the right brain neurons? Out-of-the box meeting structure? Acct briefing:brainstorm ratio? Who drank the KoolAid?
How does M&A consulting fare in a recession. Considering joining a B4 but nervous given recent tech layoffs and talk of an impending recession.
Hi everyone, really sorry to hear about the recent layoffs. I would be happy to refer to KPMG—please DM me if you’re interested.

Just got fired.. any opportunities out there in North America. Strategy consultant, manager level ; experience in consumer markets: I heard technology sector is hiring. Open to relocation
OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?
Have there actually been any US layoffs? I have heard this should not happen til next month.
After being laid off for like the 4th time in the last 10 years, I’m ready to go full time freelance and work for myself. Are there any resources out there for non-creatives on this journey? My background is strategy, analytics & general brand. I can also do media planning/buying for smaller clients.
As a UX/UI designer with a non design background (just a minor in interaction design), i find it rough to get more efficient at software. Figma, sketch, adobe CC… idk if i just need more practice since it doesnt come naturally or if im in the wrong field. I fear that at my next entry level position I’ll be fired just because it takes me forever to get digital work done
When you get added to the Laid-Off Bowl but haven’t been notified that you’ve been laid-off

Guys - If I am going for a h1b first time stamping interview, what do I answer if i am asked "Do you work for an end client?" I do not have any client letter or any document to show the interviewer. any guidance will be super helpful please.
Associates: Are you required to review your supervisors? How have you handled this (or would you handle, if given the option)? I’ve done upward reviews before, but they were all anonymous. This would be clear it’s from me.
Anyone want to buy my bonvoy points?
Anyone has any experience emmigrating to Central or South America? I know now is not the best time, but long term I would love to move to somewhere like Colombia or Costa Rica. Not sure what would be the best path. I was thinking getting me one of those english teaching jobs and start from there. But anyone has any other ideas?
What’s the weirdest hobby/personality trait your partner has? My partner is in a satire band that he formed with some of his friends, and they perform once a year in a dive bar. Our whole team goes!
Does anyone bullet journal here? What are some of your favorite templates? Do you buy or create them on your own? If possible, visual examples would be helpful!
Is this legal?
Favorite quest bar flavor? Time for a restock

Hello all - I have been offered a role with a big 4 in Canada for the "Manager" level. Since, it is a new market, I am unaware of the salary benchmark and big4 pay range in Canada. It would be of great help if you could assist with the pay range for a Manager working for a big4 in Canada? I do have a ball park figure in mind, after researching a bit online. But, if anyone actually knows that pay range in Canada, please let me know.
