Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
If you were laid off from your last job do you think it will affected your negotiation in your next job?
I need help. I was recently laid off from Deloitte and was extremely blind sided by it. It has put me in a very bad position and need to find something. I am very lost at the moment. As a little background, I am in ITS, but also have domestic experience. Any input, advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
Got laid off a months ago and while I’m freelancing at the moment and making great $, I’m still upset about it. I really don’t think I deserved to be let go and my team would 100 percent agree. Cont
Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?
My husband (also works in the industry) just got laid off. And I’m a freelancer. So much for our plan to start a family soon.
KPMG announced no 2020 layoffs, but at this point, has any other firm provided this or a similar plan forward to protect employees during these times?
I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
I had a dream that I forgot to mute on a weekend firmwide call, began gossiping with my roommie about who's fucking who & what a fluid-covered mess it was, &my boss fake fired me to teach me a lesson
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
Anyone else from EY not hearing back from any jobs they’ve applied to? I was not laid off but starting to look for a new job regardless. Not sure if it’s just me/my resume.
When your MD messages you at exactly 11:59pm and tells you to come into his office for a 'quick-small update'. Me thinking "layoff?" 🤔
Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something
What are the signs that you’re getting laid off? And how quickly can that decision be made? Is it possible to have poor performance today, then laid off as soon as tomorrow?
Anyone looking for a freelance graphic designer or illustrator? Just got laid off, and could use something to hold me over.
Want to take advantage of the hot consulting market and get into MBB ! I'm an experienced hire with around 4yrs of work exp. Anyone willing to connect and help me with some tips and eventually a referral if things work out? Thanks :)
I’m on Cap gap. H1 transfer in process. Can I travel to San Juan Puerto Rico? Did anyone recently do that? What documents did they ask?
Would anyone at Deloitte be willing to provide a referral? I’m qualified for the role but just want to ensure my resume gets seen. TYIA
Looking to take advanced ms project 2016 training. What’s the best online courses. Lynda? Recommendations appreciated!
Is uncle earnie hiring?
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
Anyone else feel lost on how to exit this rat race? Burned out, feel totally stuck, and demands are only increasing 😔
A&M folks, how good (or not) are your health / dental/ vision benefits ? How much are out-of-pocket expenses for families? Also how is the 401(k) match?
Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?
Retooling as a first year from securities lit to general corporate in silicon valley. What am I in for in terms of billable hours and learning curve? How common are those 7am-12am days/working weekends?
Are we allowed to use our phones at all internationally? Going abroad for a few days vacation (PwC)
What happens if you don’t hit your billable hours? I am a first-year that had a very slow February and slow start to March. I’ve been reaching out to various teams for work but things seem slow now & I’m worried that I’m not going to hit my 1800 target.
How are MBB maternity/paternity leave?
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points
Help. My supervisor and I work closely together on our project. Partner and SM have told us directly they want me more visible, to build a brand with client, etc. But when I raise my hand to take things on (drive meetings, sub initiatives etc), manager refuses to give up any of the “higher visibility” work so that, in his words, he does not risk himself falling out of the spotlight, he wants to be the “go to”. It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -
