Coworker got fired because they stole my clients! We have a policy stating that the realtor who initiated the contact should be the one closing the deal to give them a fair chance. I feel bad but they should have read the policy...
Newly laid off and considering going into consulting. Has anyone done it with a VC or PE firm? If so, I’d love to connect.
Would you rather:
Be laid off unexpectedly with an immediate termination date but you have a severance package.
Have three weeks notice the end of your contract is up and won’t be renewed but have no benefits because you’re a contractor?
Currently going through the latter and curious how others who have lost (or will lose) their job would feel.
Hello CGI folks ..I have got selected in Capgemini...All I am getting to hear is that chances of being laid off are quite high in CGI..So, I am confuséd whether I should join or stay back in my current company...please advise

So far I’ve seen posts about EY, KPMG, and BDO’s upcoming comp reductions. Curious if other firms have made similar announcements? Can’t imagine anyone will be immune to this, just hoping no layoffs
Anyone hearing rumors about stealth layoffs?
I have joined CGI 5 months back and my project is going to end on 31st. So what will happen after that? As there are layoffs going on in the market will it affect? I am from mainframes technology and have only 2yrs of exp. Can anyone explain pls? CGI
I have not been on a project for over 3 months. Since I joined, I have been put in training. The training got extended by a month and now it's close to 4 months since I joined and without a project.
What should I do? People say that I'm lucky to get paid without doing any work, but it is stressing me out. I need the experience. The uncertainty is freaking me out, with rumours of layoffs and the certification program and all.
How do I get into a project? How long do I have to wait more?
I got an offer from Cognizant. I would like to know how is Cognizant as last year it fired a lot of employees
Was laid off in Sept. Unfortunately we will be seeing many more coming. It's what happens in a recession. Unfortunately I now also have my age against me. Not in a mentally good place at the moment.
Hey everyone, I was recently laid off.. on November 3 actually. It’s a “temporary layoff” and I’m one of the 4 who got laid off. My return date is February 1st. Would you wait, and collect employment insurance (Canada) or start looking for a new job??
Which is more stressful? 1) have an executive presentation tomorrow and a manager who over criticize you, concerned to screw up 2) company announces 25% layoff tomorrow, waiting for the moment
Advice for moving from transactional to entertainment litigation? I graduated from law school in 2018 and practiced transactional entertainment for about 1.5 yrs. until I was laid off due to the pandemic. It’s now been a full yr. of unemployment and I have no idea how to make the move given my circumstance.
After joining Bird last month, I was unfortunately let go due to company wide layoffs. Does anyone know if there are any companies hiring APM (Product/Project/Program) roles currently? Thank you very much!
Wells Fargo employees that spoke up were fired. If this is true, this story is even crazier than I thought.
I just joined a company that went through layoffs last week. It’s awk being part of meetings where the company is providing support to existing employees. I feel so guilty that I’m replacing some of these long term employees and friends of the existing ones. I’m also feeling very anxious about high expectations now and what if I’m the next

How big of a pay bump did you get from agency to agency? Did it come with a promotion? Was it worth it?

Money or passion? Spent the last 2 years building my own company after burning out. It's been tough financially but I really believe in it. Now a previous boss has made a great offer, but I'd have to give up on my company (not enough time for both). What would you do?

I just took a new job and the OTE is less than agreed to after going through the comp plan. Also the recruiter told me 50% of people were hitting their quota and no one was less than 70% last year. However I found out the last 6 months everyone is less than 10%. I know get that recruiters can mislead with performance metrics but giving the wrong OTE seems super unethical to me. Has anyone had this happen?
Hi all ,
Looking to make the switch into SAAS from selling physical products at a high level with an outstanding record and target hitting ability.
Any advice about making the move ? Anything adive is welcomed!

Hi I just started my first tech job as an AE. Salary is cool and everything around 65k a year plus commission. Was wondering if anyone has any advice to grow or find other positions with larger salaries doing well in my role and want to continue growing.
Is it super petty of me to keep calling and generally bugging potential clients when they ghost me and refuse to respond? To be clear, this is a policy I reserve for people who get way deep into the process, let we’re about to sign contracts, and then they just vanish.
Aside from the regular 9-5 job, what kind of side hustle can you recommend for extra income?
Is someone with an SVP/VP of sales title more likely to get a customer meeting than a Director of Sales? In other words, Does it a better title come with more influence, or do titles not matter?

Anyone here currently work or have worked for @Gartner as an AE in Large Enterprise? I’ve had a couple of opportunities to interview over the past several years but have passed both times. Pay appears to be pretty solid from what I’ve been told and I’d eventually like to work a smaller book size and sell services instead of SaaS, as these are usually always in demand regardless of economic conditions.
Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.
The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?
My manager, who also happens to be the COO of the startup that hired me a month ago has advised me to enunciate clearer & “iron out any accent issues”. I have a clear accent and sound nothing like Apu from the Simpsons. None of my clients nor colleagues have any trouble understanding me.
I’m an Indian expat who moved to the UK and I’m the 3rd person of Color (first expat) who works here. We have about 150 employees based across UK (HQ) and the US.
Wondering how I should take this.
The way I look at it, a performance plan is a polite warning to find a new job.
Well this certainly caught my eye. Are you on a plan now?
I’ve let people go after being on a performance plan when they haven’t met measures. However, I have had others that were out on performance plans that proved themselves viable- and were removed from the plan successfully. Typically, the idea of the performance plan is to help get someone back on track if they aren’t meeting standards. However, if the plan and it’s standards are neglected, then it’s a clear indication that the requirements aren’t getting fulfilled and that’s usually a sign for termination.
I was new to an underperforming territory and put on a plan despite a steady build on funnel. Typical deal timeline was ~12m. I didn’t have any closure due To the guy before me being asleep at the wheel. A few weeks into the plan a bluebird got me out of the dog house and a few weeks after funnel began to produce and put me in #2 slot for revenue. I did nothing different pre/post plan and this was a seed of resentment that led to me eventually moving on a few years later. I always thought that this was an opp for my leadership to align and help
Me rebuild an underperforming patch and instead they began to string me up for termination. Be under no illusion that a plan is first step towards termination
In short, refresh your resume and start pinging recruiters. My $0.02 freely given
Depends which company you are at. If you’re at mine - 100% plan to be gone after the PIP period. You’ll get severance which is nice but it’s generally understood that if you get put on PIP, you start looking to jump ship so you have something lined up after termination.
I have not, personally, but have terminated employment with an employee after a performance plan requirements were not met.
The goal of the plan is to help you meet the minimum requirements of the position. If you cannot successfully do that, the organization will likely terminate. Focus on doing what you can to succeed rather than what happens if you don’t.
Agreed. Most managers putting someone on plan know exactly how it will turn out
If I want to fire a sales rep, I have to put them on a PIP first. It's documentation to cover the company from a wrongful termination lawsuit. In my experience, it's far more likely that an employee on a plan will be terminated than be retained.
When I got a new boss I could tell he didn't really like me and when covid hit my numbers were lower so I cant really tell if he's doing this because he has to or to fire me
No. If the product isn’t selling or you’re not able to sell it, start interviewing and move on.
I really want to know if anyone has ever been fired from one and what happens
It’s possible but unlikely. I wouldn’t bother, there’s always lots of great options out there for someone that’s good at what they do.
