First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s... I also ask around yet everyone says they’re fine. It’s still considered busy season here since I’m at midsize and it feels wrong not hitting atleast 40 billable hours. It would suck if I got laid off cause of it. 🥴
Turned in my resignation today and it felt great. To the fish out there that are still searching - lots of love and luck. And if you can, try to stick it out without getting fired for a job (cont'd)
Is it possible that massive layoffs, already expected, could just mean big numbers but not big pain like 2008 - 2009? Hear me out, the pain of 2008 was that there were large layoffs for months (cont)
If you get fired due to performance issues can you still file for unemployment? If so, will you get enough money for rent and food?
Claim unemployment or try to find your hardest to find a job in the next month and omit the layoff? I want to rush but not settle. Definitely don't want to go back into consulting.
So now that Trump has been fired. Are we ready to talk about splitting the Union? Think about it. 70M americans want a fascist dictatorship, and think wanting to give people equal rights is socialism Lets go for an amicable divorce. Let them keep their Fascism and we will keep our "Socialism"
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
Getting fired from a toxic work environment is it the best or worst thing that can happen?
Was offered a job at a public university in another state to do communications, wondering if this means it’s unlikely I will be laid off/furloughed. Is that something I should even ask? Currently at an agency in a safe role (or so I’ve been told) and don’t want to leave for something less stable
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 🤷🏼♀️
Even if I am performer at clients I am having issues with job security! Good people around me are getting fired! Man! This is harsh!
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Fired from big law and still unemployed 8 months out. I’m a mid level transactional associate. Is my legal career over?
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
Finally got my YE! Was hoping to at least get a 3 after hearing about all the layoffs and the 4's going around. Got a 2 and I am EXTREMELY relieved! 🙌🏻🎉 Now I can really start my weekend! 😎🍾
It's kinda bullshit that a lot of us worked hard to get into consulting and now have to deal with layoffs. While others are enjoying safe decent paying jobs even though they slack off.
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
What are partners hearing about the need to do furlough/layoffs? Heard of Deloitte and Accenture laid off/furloughs already within certain practice areas
Hey Sales 🐠, kindly requesting your advice. I have 4 YOE in customer success and 2 YOE as a presales solutions consultant, all in the health tech space.

What cities in the US can someone get a lot of nature/green space but also some of the big city feel? My job just went fully remote and I’m debating on leaving my home town(Tampa). I’ve lived in Denver before. Loved it but felt it was lacking diversity and some city aspects. Any recommendations for a straight single 28M?
Is there a better city than the A in terms of diversity, cost of living, weather, airport, and overall stuff to do (nightlife, outdoors)? Some contenders (although doesn’t fit every category) include Dallas, Houston, Austin, Philly, Chicago, NOLA, some FL cities, Seattle, Denver, & Phoenix in my opinion
Currently at 135k base comp, should hit manager by EOY. Should I take a tech program manager position at FB for 200k? What’s better for long term career growth? I hear once you’re at FB, navigating to new teams, projects, and roles is possible.
