FYI...My friend that works at RSM got laid off. Tax associate. In the beginning she said they weren’t going to do layoffs. Glad I don’t work there anymore. Anyone at RSM can confirm?
How to spin a layoff? All at level or partially at next level snapshots. 70% of snapshots had performance differentiators. Group had a $9M plan but only hit $1.8M this FY. Want to stay in consulting.
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
What steps do you all take to prepare for layoffs (outside of an updated resume)? I’m not really expecting layoffs within my practice (fin services), but want to be prepared so that if it does happen I’m not spending months looking for a job.
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
Please help. I was laid off this past week. I am international and my OPT is coming to an end very soon. I had a call with an immigration lawyer and Deloitte unfortunately does not offers additional support for immigrants aside from said call. I am in need of a job ASAP. I have until July 24th to find a job or I will have to start a new educational program or leave the US. Leaving the US is personally not a viable option. Skills: AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certified, Power BI (cont.)
Got an offer in industry and also got fired by the firm within an hour yesterday 😂 finally living my life for once!
Spinning off an earlier post, is it better to quit or get laid off? I would think quitting and using the time to "re-center" (i.e. Travel for a few months) then job hunt would look better than lay off
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.
Getting Laid 👍 > Getting Off 👍 > Getting Laid Off 👎
Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
Is it noteworthy to have worked in the creative industry for 23 years -18 in advertising, without ever being fired or laid-off? Are there medals or gold watches for that?
Last week of my project! Who needs/wants a Senior Analyst? Travel preferably (I'm in the Bay Area)
Anyone laid off from Deloitte been getting interviews? (Not for tech roles but more finance) im getting traction from head hunters but not much from firm website applications
Happy 4th of July. 🇺🇸 A lot of folks have never even been to a country where holding a protest sign is sedition (HK), or speaking badly about the leader is considered treason (Turkey), or the internet is heavily censored (PRC). I’m thankful that we live in a country where it’s ok to trash talk the system, and it’s ok to fight to improve your lot in life. We’ve never been the perfect union we aspire to be and I doubt we ever will be, but as far as being free to speak and succeed, we’ve got it good
Holy crap the Precheck & Clear lIke @ IAD is long this morning. The employee said it’s a normal Monday occurrence

Who's ready for the New England variant? 74% of covid cases in a recent outbreak were among vaccinated people https://whdh.com/news/reports-findings-from-provincetown-covid-19-outbreak-impacted-new-cdc-mask-guidelines/
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
Does ACN give a stipend for WFH setup? If yes, can anyone share what it is? Also what’s the gym reimbursement/ other perks one should be aware of? Joining soon
Does anybody know if Accenture is sponsoring h1b with experience hire? I would just need an h1b transfer. Also, when do you usually reveal to the company that you need sponsorship if they did not ask?

Currently at a T3 consulting firm. What does it take to move to MBB without getting an MBA? Any certain experience, projects, specialty that would help?
Do you spend your entire per diem? Or do you prefer low-cost food options (chipotle for example) and save the rest of the per diem?
Haven’t had a raise in two years. Making $100k in SF and was just told by HR I’m “in my range.” Is it time to jump ship?
