For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?

Tax Manger 3: really want to get the job done well but not motivated at all. Definitely not partner material so this is not my forever job but I’m comfortable with what I’m doing now. Should I leave or wait until I get fired?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles

Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
