Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
United Airlines is cutting 30% of it's workforce by October 1st. Apologies if this was already posted. https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-coronavirus-chicago-united-airlines-job-cuts-20200505-542kkmykdfbvjdefti6d3tbb7i-story.html
What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
In other news: Deloitte is full of trolls that are trying to convince you you're about to be laid off.
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
Recently laid off from KPMG audit after 3 years. I’m on an H1B so odds are tough. If anyone could help me with a referral to a transaction services/restructuring role at another services firm or middle market bank, would be grateful. I know it’s a long shot but thought it’s worth posting.
Layoff news from Deloitte! Is there a pattern?
Just been invited to a career in consulting night by Bain about 4 months after I took the tests for a referred application. Is this just fired out to everyone or is this indicative of something more?
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
Would you tell your younger self to go into advertising? I’ve already experienced anxiety, sexual harassment from my male bosses, and a layoff...
Despite the rosy rhetoric from Corporate America, the truth remains: last hired/first fired. https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5f5fa3c0c5b68d1b09c5eabc
Share your experience on last month at your job before exit. What are some things to do?
Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)
Looking for good behavioral and case interview prep resources. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?
Does anyone know what health benefits (gym membership, reimbursements, etc) does PwC in Atlanta offer?
Created a new bowl to share some scrumptious recipes during these WFH times.. Please show some love and follow https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_bcbxed :)
I see a lot of posts about McKinsey on here, and not as many about BB. I feel the cultural fits are all different enough to warrant a pretty even distribution of people applying to each. Can anyone provide insight into why there’s so much interest in McKinsey?
Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?

The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!
What can I expect in a final round, virtual interview? It’ll be with the person who interviewed me during the second round which was technical.
Has anyone else successfully made the switch to a trading position from elsewhere in the bank? What worked for you?
Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
Is it a good sign if my interviewer said they want to move “as fast as possible on this” and my answers were “perfect” and he responded to my thank you email right away or is that just common curtesy? This is my first interview in years so I honestly don’t know.
Anyone given the Googlyness and Leadership interview? What kind of questions are asked?￼
Who said hotel weeknights were boring ? 😁
