Can a buy side research analyst get fired for underperformance? Are there p&l metrics that make it volatile career choice, similar to PMs?
Industry vets - in your experience how recession proof is insurance? I was not yet in the job market last recession but I watched my mom get laid off and struggle to find employment during that time for the next 1.5 years. I was wanting to hit the job market towards the end of this year, but now I worry that if I do move companies, the recession could put me in position of last one hired first one fired. Is it better to stay put?
What is up with all these design tests for interviews? I know I should say no but I just got laid off. I have only had one company offer to pay me to complete a design test. Why as professionals are we expected to give away our work for free?
We’ll never be in this together until we realize that layoffs cannot be the normality in this business. Yeah this is a special time. But how come we’ve accepted to have layoffs all the time even when everything was ok?
We just lost our biggest client who provides over half our annual business. Layoffs are guaranteed. I don’t even know how to work right now. Please send positive vibes/encouragement/advice this way 🙏
Is it possible that massive layoffs, already expected, could just mean big numbers but not big pain like 2008 - 2009? Hear me out, the pain of 2008 was that there were large layoffs for months (cont)
Applied to a job at Nuveen. The online application asks if you've ever been fired from a job. It's a required question so I had to answer it. Fact is I was fired from my last job so I answered yes. Should I just forget about Nuveen? Why do they even ask this anyway? I've never in my life seen this question on a job application not have I been asked this in an interview...

Any remote jobs in California? I just got laid off from my small law firm do you no growth in the California branch (it was me and one attorney who split his cases between both CA and OR) so since it was my first paralegal job out of school I’m struggling to find places that hire with less than 1 year experience in a law office.
People worried about recession and layoffs in North America. How’s the job security in Middle East looking?
I'm about to put in my two weeks EOW and I'm so relieved.
Last Feb my CD and CW were laid off and we were incredibly understaffed, and I made the mistake of being a team player and taking on extra responsibilities thinking it'd be temporary in a moment of transition. 15 months, one leave of absence (I was/am beyond burnt out), and two very positive bi-annual reviews later, I had nothing to show for it, title or compensation-wise.
The job I'm taking will be over twice my current pay.
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?

Hello. I am new and I wanted to get some advice.
Heads up: I don’t have dm open yet.
I don’t really know what to do as a career or anything anymore. I’ve been trying to find part time work for the time being. I feel like I have 0 skills when I try to look for work. I currently do freelance art. I enjoy it, but I don’t make enough yet. I previously did IT work— but became burnt out and have been out of the field for ~3 years. I am trying to learn programming, but for myself—not job ready.
Pretty vague question.
Have 3+ YOE in Python, working in a service based firm, CTC is 8+, joined near about a year back.
Have been reaching out by multiple recruiters on LinkedIn and Naukri. Negotiation stage at 1-2 companies.
Not sure whether to take that call to make a switch!

I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE.
And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all.
Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.
Since MBB raised base by like 10k for entry level, 100k now for out of undergrad, 175k for out of MBA, what would be expected for an experienced hire coming in at the senior business analyst or senior associate consultant level? 115k or 125k?
Thinking about starting law school at the age of 30 after ~6 years in consulting. Dont have much in savings and will likely have to take ~300k in debt and put off acquiring a house for 10 years. For those that have been to law school, how much free time do you get at a top 2 law school to work on a start-up? Not interested in b-school because I want to have the capability to pursue lawsuits without having to rely on a law firm, however intend to go into the startup/venture scene post-law school.

Sometimes I work hard on something and my manager still doesn’t seem impressed, other times I don’t think what I have is good but he thinks otherwise. Is this common when you’re still new to consulting? Any way to improve predicting his reception of my work?
