It has been slow year. I started to hear there are layoffs going on in my group. I was wondering if there are signs your next? Also do you get an email to tell you are selected or something?
Question with regards to layoff talks. Are those who are being let go on the bench or being released while on projects? I haven't heard of many ACN layoffs in the former situation...
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?

What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?
I’m on an engagement with another associate. I’m fully booked (upwards of 60 hours a week every week of July), while the other associate hasn’t had billable hours for the last 3 months... engagement team has some changes they need to get pushed through to the wps, and I’m the better choice to push those updates (have more experience in wps and just better in general). But the other associate has availability and just gets paid to do nothing. Should I bring that up to someone? How and to whom?

I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean.

You’re given a brief for an OOO campaign. Could be cool. How many days are you given before you have to show concepts to the ECD? And to the client? Curious about time expectations at different places.
Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in? I had an interview with EY two weeks ago (before I was officially a senior), but never heard back, probably because they were looking for a senior lol. 😭 Thank you everyone!!!
