Layoffs and furloughs thread. What firms are cutting and furloughing? Across all industries.
All this news of layoffs is so depressing. I’m blaming holding company greed. This forces agencies to be ruthless and squeeze employees until they are in the brink of nervous breakdowns.
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
HELP! Recently promoted M1, and a very low-performing staff is threatening to go to HR with harassment allegations as a means to protect herself from getting fired. Suggestions?
Leaving the firm for grad school in a month. Trying to get a severance package but recently got a new career counselor. Do I tell her I'm going to grad school in a month? Or keep my mouth shut until I
If you're laid off, do they ask you to resign? If so, can you refuse and ask them to fire you instead?
Many of my colleagues that started with me have been laid off. Where should I start looking just in case. Key resume points: - TS/SCI + poly - Security+ - AWS CCP - PMP - want to stay in DC area
Heard that you are not likely to get laid off for being unstaffed if you got promoted in the last performance cycle, anyone know if that's true?
If you're on a PiP, is it better to quit just before the end stage, when you get fired, or better to get fired and collect unemployment, but also have a company-based termination on your record
I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
Anyone looking for a freelance graphic designer or illustrator? Just got laid off, and could use something to hold me over.
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
EY recruiter wants to schedule a call to "debrief" the interviews. Would they call me to reject me?
MBB 🐠, what is the most valuable piece of advice / feedback you have received while at your firm? Starting soon and feeling slightly anxious! Thanks :)
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
Its bonus season and thinking of splurging on a vintage rolex submariner...any other thoughts on a comparable watch to consider?
EY Folks - does any one here know who to contact if you need an employee verification letter certifying dates of employment and job responsibilities for green card process? I don’t work for EY anymore and my new employer is asking me to request specific skills to be put on EY’s letter head.
Best SPG property to stay in London?
Do people need to get stimulus checks is their job was not impacted by covid and they continue to be employed?
Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?
Anyone know the deal with distinguished achievement? How many people get it? How much better is your raise/bonus? Etc
i just got my power line bill for 80 dollars between me and my roomate and find this expensive? I live in a 2/2 in FL. Wondering if there are any data points I can use here.
Have you ever run into a situation where you asked for more money (either a raise or when negotiating an offer) and you got it and regretted it? What are the strings attached to more $?
Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
My district is looking for suggestions on ways to modify our special ed program. Ours is making life hard for our general ed classrooms. Does your district have a model you would suggest?
Nice hurricane leaving LGA tonight!
Anyone ever dealt with fraud at Marcus? Had to call three times to get them to even initiate the process, now I have to mail in a written statement, and it can take up to 45 days for a decision. My university credit union can take care of this online in an hour. Had Marcus two years no complaints, but current setting up HM Bradley.
