For those that are thinking of moving to new jobs. Are you worried about moving to a new company and being laid off? With the economy the way it is and rumors of lay offs this is something that makes me think twice about leaving. I am aware that it can happen at my current company but it's it more likely to be laid off first in a new company?
Do senior managers have an employment contract? what is the weeks of pay for separations (severance pay)?

How will the Covid crisis affect Indian IT industry? In the short term, I think there will be job cuts but after that, outsourcing will increase since companies don't need people at office to do work

CEO’s out there guaranteeing no Covid layoffs, cutting their own salaries and creating employee relief funds. Aside from employee videos, which leaders in advertising are stepping up with actions?
Does anyone from BCG have insights to how they handled the past couple economic downturns? Were there layoffs or "not layoffs" - but increases to folks leaving the firm through up or out policy? How'd it feel overall? Did leadership do a good job weathering the storm? Any insights appreciated. Thanks! Boston Consulting Group
Wasn’t worried about layoffs or slowdown until now. Real estate is S L O W and has been for a couple months. Scared
Hello y’all! I am back again for another round of LinkedIn endorsements. With the bad economy and layoffs, let’s all support each other with all the help we can get.
Please provide me with top 3 skills you’d like endorsed for and I will also do the same.
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.
How brutal has Accenture been during covid? I have an offer from the firm, but worried about all the layoffs I've been hearing about.
If you give your project/manager 1-2 months notice that you’re leaving to go to school (as a courtesy) and the firm decides to cut the cord sooner and forces you out, do you get severance?
I’m sorry if this sounds insensitive but does it look bad if one of my recommenders is laid off? I was about to ask for a rec but haven’t yet
I was informed today that my employment would be terminated at a tier-2 consulting firm in Toronto. The reasons for my dismissal are unclear and I would like to get legal advice on the termination agreement and severance package that was offered. Has anyone experienced a similar situation and can refer a good employment lawyer?
More layoffs at hill Holliday?
What things/activities would you advise doing while laid off to show drive/desire to remain in the industry/get back in? Would help if those activities also made money. Thanks!

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.

Thoughts on SAFe? I have used SAFe at many companies and I feel like it’s theft. I think Scaled Agile just reads good books by innovative authors and repackages it without much credit to the true innovators. I also feel that paying a yearly membership to maintain certifications without proving you are learning more through PDUs is a money scam. Plus have you ever worked anywhere where it actually works in an agile fashion? I have not.
