Anyone else hoping they get laid off? Not really feeling PA and think this may be my only way out

Not really. Must be nice to come from such a place of privilege. I'm have panic attacks about layoffs. Some of us need to pay our rent and eat.

Just moved firms; high performer but also been in the pick-up/get-in-gear stage. I’m worried too.

You always want to leave on your own terms because you will have control of your fate. If you do want to leave PA, just do it. Life is too short. Why wait to get laid off? You’re wasting everyone time in mentoring you when they can focus on someone that wants to stay.

No, definitely. I have a semidecent cash emergency fund, but my kid medical needs necessitate health insurance. I refuse to comprehend how much I'll have to pay for the coverage EY cutrently provides.

Ya that primarily. Added bonus: I like my job (and I don’t know what I’d do otherwise)

Has anyone struggled with getting back on track since layoffs? A couple of people I was very good coworkers with were laid off and it’s just not the same. Both were mentoring me and took me under their wing :( it’s hard to focus and stay motivated

Was laid off last week from Deloitte after two years. While I’m sad about the situation, I’m taking it as a sign from the universe to start anew. Interested in pivoting to public sector consulting. Would anyone from Guidehouse be able to refer me? Curious about the day to day life of someone working at Guidehouse as well. Thank you in advance.

Two months ago, the agency I worked at closed. They gave us a month's notice and no severance. I took that as my motivation to GTFO. Yesterday I got my first freelance gig as a journalist.

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?

Generally, does it look bad on a resume to go from a from full-time job to freelance? If that’s what you want, I don’t think it should, but folks might think you got fired or randomly quit or something.

Hello my fellow shoal of fish. I am seeking recommendations for a lounge chair in my office. I currently have the adjustable stand desk and a relatively comfortable office chair (not when reclining) but the other half of my office is empty. Im putting in a 55” tv and need a recliner, lounge chair, or something of the sorts to put in front of the tv. Something where i can put my feet up. Conference calls are such a drag when i have to sit at my desk.
