Are the EY layoff news true?

The firm offered jobs to staff people - they expected to only hire 60% of the people. However, 70% of the people took the offer they did not expect that many folks to accept the offers. Mind you, some folks underperformed as Staff and those that were not going to make it to Senior were let go as well. No point in training lazy people....Assurance always over hire people. If you want to be safe jump into Advisory or Tax.

Soooo, kevin virostek crashed our meeting. I thought about asking him about the layoffs but didn't have the balls to 😬 but I talked to our civilian account partner and she send we are just not seeing the revenue that we forecasted. A lot of companies are pausing (especially with the new administration coming in) and waiting to see how things play out. For example, M&A has basically dried up for us. The economy is obviously temporary, but we just can't afford to keep that large of a bench, hence the layoffs. However, GPS is hiring and we anticipate that 4 out of 5 people we hire will be IT. So if you have an IT background and are located in the D.C. metro area or are interested in relocating, come to the dark side of federal! 😈 hope that explanation helps.
