The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
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?
Hey CDs. Let’s say there was a planner with a ton of experience with big brands and this person was getting laid off. Would you take a chance on them as a freelance writer if they were super cheap?
Too much of a bitch to quit. My side biz is booming but I'm too risk adverse to go for it. Almost want to just get laid off - Exhausted from working 2 jobs. And no they aren't related to each other
What do the Partners on here think of how these layoffs are being handled? Very curious (P1, where are you???)
I’m gonna cry. In the beginning of the SIP my firm let some people go, my manager got fired because she did something stupid, and now a person on my team has quit without notice and I’m stuck
I raised some issues in my team, and now all the male members are telling me “no need to interact with us”. And labeling me as assuming things and that they “never said” anything. All my work credit has been taken away and said they will do it, I don’t need to. I feel helpless and that I’ll get fired, these powerful people won’t let me live here.
Would you define strategy as one of the safer biz disciplines come layoff / fat trimming time? Been curious lately about the value to agencies.
Deloitte peeps: is there a typical time of the year when people get laid off (e.g., after year-end, before year-end, any time on the beach)?
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 🤷🏼♀️
If an employee gets laid off due to restructuring is there a possibility they can be hired back couple years later?
Hi H1B fishes! For anyone laid off recently and looking for/found a new job, can you please help me understand: 1) Does the 60 day grace period count towards your remaining time on H1B? 2) What's the latest day by which a new company can file a transfer without it being a concern? Should filing be before day 60 or the receipt notice be dated before day 60? 3) Anyone successfully transition to a visitor visa in the interim? TIA!
After the layoffs we had, most people were offered a 90 day notice period, during which they have to be on-call, but there are those that get put on multiple accounts (continued)
Got fired from agency. Had to relocate out of pocket. WPP accidentally pays me 15 days later. Loving the glitch. Out of integrity I reported it. Their response was everything but thankful. (Cont.)
So now that the layoffs have settled for the moment at PwC, do you actually feel like a lot of the people in your group were let go? Because I don't...
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
Does title in consulting matter when it comes to exiting to Industry? For example, a director level position requires 15 YOE, if a senior manager with 9 YOE applies, does he have a better advantage over a manager who has 25 YOE?
I have a straight-A student who is 2 points away from an A in my class (after grading her midterm exam). Should I give her the A or would giving her exactly what she has earned teach her valuable lesson?

Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
Is anyone from Stax Inc. willing to chat? Just had a call with a recruiter and would like to learn more about the projects, culture, etc.
I was raised as a fundamentalist Christian and was a “true believer” until a few years ago. I don’t know how to break it to my parents that their model child is an atheist.

Is it really low for new partners to start at $150k and the average partner comp being $350k during their time being a partner? Top 25 firm.
