Anyone in their mid-late 40s feel a rising sense of anxiety about your age in this business and the prospect of “aging out”? If so, what’s your plan to continue your career?
Hi beautiful ladies!
I recently learned that I’m being laid off from Microsoft. 😞
If anyone knows of any openings for project or program managers, please let me know! I have 6+ years of experience. I have worked in both entertainment and tech, but I’m open to learning and trying new avenues.
After 6 years of temporary contracts and unstable situations, I find my dream job in my dream company. All of a sudden the world goes upside down and I get laid off. I start sending hundreds of applications, with only 2 recruiters getting back to me to say I don’t have experience for the job (this is how it works in Italy). Add a terrible health situation in my family and it seems there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Ugh. 😞
Any truth to Bain beginning (or being close to) layoffs? I’ve heard this through the Bain grapevine (not my current firm)

Has anyone been laid off from a big 4 firm before?
If so, how long did it take you to find another job, where did you land, and did the layoff complicate your job search?
Going through it a bit after a very recent layoff and just looking for guidance. Thanks 😊
Watching Severance…haven't finished it yet. What do you guys think? Psychologically separating your work life from your home life. Smart or insane? Would you do it? Barring the ethical complications lol
C right now at Uncle D and thinking of making the jump to PwC or BCG with all the layoffs. Have an MPA and 6+ years experience. What's a good salary range for my interviews??

Laid off with 1 YOE. Do I include college Awards / Extracurriculars (have just one line to list each right now) ? How about SAT scores?
Anyway to achieve FIRE by just paying off my house, doing 6% 401k contribution and not investing outside of that. I could probably just get a junior industry BA job once my home is paid off. Let’s say I reach VP level but I retire into a industry BA level role lol I could probably do any of that work in 2hrs and I wouldn’t really care if I do get fired.

Saw a post in Consulting bowl that bench people in PS started getting fired. Anyone has any insider info? Post link:
I did the interviews with Amazon.
Round 1: HR round cleared.
Round 2: Hiring manager round. After round 2, HR said, there is restructuring in the team and the role no longer exist.
This happened in April. Now, I joined another company in june (not ecommerce).
Shall I apply again in amazon? I target L6.
Issue is: In past i worked in a company, left in 6 month (layoff due to covid). Now, in current company, I am only here for 3 months.
Its my 4th compny in 6 yrs. does it look bad on CV?
Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
Need advice, I am going to get baptized tomorrow. But I don’t think I am in the right space to do so. I recently got laid off and haven’t found a job yet, the stress and increasing competition have led me to be upset with the Lord for my prayers being unanswered. I don’t think it’s right to get baptized right now but everything is already finalized. What should I do?

What are pros and cons of a rental property? I’m looking to move out of townhome in the next year and unsure of whether to sell or rent… (cont’d in comment)
Ok consultants, what you got!
Is it bad to have basic salary less compared to flexible pay. If the basic is 30% of gross, it's a government rule to have basic as 40 - 50% of gross which the company is not following and not ready to change the structure. I heard the advantage as in hand salary will be more in that case. But what are the disadvantages of this.
What are the career options for people in market intelligence/research roles from BIG4s. Also, can they switch to client facing roles?

Hi everyone, my wife applied for I140 through EB2 NIW in Dec 2020 and did the change of status as well (concurrent filing). We did our biometrics about a year ago now, and she just got her I140 approved last week. Any idea how much longer we should expect to wait for I485 (change of status)? Processing times for I485 in our service center are between 10 and 19 months. Does the clock on that start when we applied i.e. in Dec 2020 or when the I140 got approved? Also, should we expect an interview?
Additional Posts in Advertising
A lot of people say advertising isn't as creative as it used to be. For those of you who have been in the industry for a while, is the creative that's being *proposed* to clients still as good as it used to be? Or has that declined in quality also?
