I only heard about Deloitte. Lots of firms are hiring like crazy. But wouldn't be surprised if firms are using the good economy to boot out low performers and bring in better hires. Seems like what Deloitte is doing.

Besides that one post that circulated about that one M I heard the only “high” (not average or below) performers were in areas that have low demand or limited expected future growth.

To be fair - some people had low utilization and could be considered high performers if utilized.

Probably not MBB.

The broad layoffs seem to be unique to Deloitte

Nope

Besides the usual person being on the bench for too long? No

In Seattle our bench is empty, can’t get enough people, extremely hard to find resources. The competition is tough here for resources. Big bonuses are being paid to come here. It’s expensive though. Bay Area prices...

Hey all, Happy Monday. Curious for feedback on how you've seen severance offers approached.

My prior companies have always been what I thought of as average: min of 2 weeks plus extra week for every year for ICs, min of 4 weeks plus extra week for every year for managers, etc. for Directors & beyond.

Current co refuses to offer more than 1-2 weeks, max. I had to go to bat recently for a 3 year + manager level only to get 3 weeks and my leadership team is NOT happy with me.

Thoughts?

Here’s a reminder for my perfectionists, first/second years, and those of us questioning if we’re doing enough. Your lessons do not need to be incredible this year. Fall back on some of your favorites, do what you can, and make sure you’re allocating time for yourself everyday. Yes everyday or else you will go insane. End each day by saying you did your best and no matter what mistakes you make or if lessons flop, try again the next day. You. Are. Human.
