Is it appropriate to talk with your M and SM about your concern over layoffs? I want to talk to them about wanting to increase my workload and scope.
To all my PWC FB peers. To quote an ACN post from when Deloitte had their layoffs...I know we fight on the project battlefield, but good luck during this difficult time. Know we all stand w/ you.
I've consistently held a job with no gaps since I was 12 years old. I'm about to be 28 this year and doing pretty well for myself. I have this fear of being let go/fired from my job., I'm at a.....
Received an email invite this morning from the Talent Partner requesting a "Talent Discussion". Does this mean I'm getting fired? My Sr Man. during busy season butchered me during snapshot. #SOS #FCKD
Recently laid off and want to use this time to take some data analytics and visualization tool training (SQL, Python, Tableau, etc.) Any tips on free or reasonably priced courses?
Laid off back in Feb, Since then, decided that I won't be held ransom by the marketplace so i decided to start a consulting business. Sometimes challenges are opportunity #hanginthere
Deloitte’s rep in the market should go down. Layoff off people in the peak of a pandemic with social unrest is not okay. they couldn’t hold a month longer?
If I give my 2 week notice and firm decides to let me go sooner than 2 weeks, does that count as termination and would I get severance?
What’s it’s like working at EY tax? I heard they recently fired a bunch of people. Got an offer but not sure if I should make the move.
Now there’s MORE Covid in the WH??!! Honest to god, this Administration is SO INCOMPETENT! If they can’t protect themselves from Covid, then how in the hell are they going to protect Americans??! So glad they’ve been fired! Good riddance!
To the people getting emails for a time to talk from random partners (meaning getting laid off) could you just keep rescheduling to buy you a little more time?
Got laid off today. Remember to take a step back and not take all of this for granted. We're all pretty lucky to have this opportunity. And good luck to everyone up for promotion this year!
Got laid off last week. Hitting two meetings a day. Mostly optimistic, but a little doubt and fear is creeping in. Any experience, strength, wisdom?
If I were to be laid off, I'd stand to receive ~2400 / month for 26wks in unemployment if you don't include the CARES ACT increase. Really my only fixed expense is rent at 1350 + utilities. Immoral
What is the worst experience you’ve ever had with Uber/ Lyft? I just got dropped off on the side of the freeway (near an exit thankfully) in the rain, on the way to the airport. Because (contd)
Advice on how to break into an M&A related role, coming from B4 and more back office work experience? TIA!
Got a job offer but the pay base is only 5% more than what I make. I’ll be promoted in a few months so I could be possibly making more at my current job. However, this job pays a discretionary bonus and it’s within (think AM/ER) at a MM bank which I’m hoping would get me more corporate strategy/PM jobs rather than my current path on Big4 ERP implantation. I’m trying to negotiate but if it doesn’t happen do you think I can find something better or do I do this for a year and exit? I’m 2 YOE
Is anyone else depressed by the ORM/URM world we live in? Would you be supportive of a demographic-blind admissions process, especially given the multitude of interesting backgrounds and successful experiences regardless of gender / racial / other identity?
Left my last company in September for a new role and am unhappy with the decision after now being in the role for 4 months . Have started looking and have interviews lined up with a FAANG for 2 roles. Any recommendations on how to approach the question when it comes about the short stint at the current role?
Man...left big 4 recently. I regret it slightly but the raises were just garbage. I wish I could describe them differently.
Hello! I’m looking for advice on asking for a raise. I accepted a UX design role about a year ago within my company and I was verbally told I would receive a raise with my title change after a few months on the job. After a few months, I was told no raises because of the pandemic (understood). With a new year and recently receiving my masters in UX, when is the right time to ask for the raise with the pandemic still happening?
Accenture Strategy vs. Accenture Consulting vs. Accenture Technology? What's the difference and which is the best (WLB, Compensation, lifestyle etc)? Looking to pivot and wondering which to include as my top pick...
Is your company still expecting you to sell like there isn’t a pandemic going on, or is it just mine?
I’m interested in possibly in using the Predictive Index test for hiring purposes. Does anyone use it? Any information would be useful in determining if this is a good hiring strategy.
First timer here. How do anyone request or demand for points for any uncertainties? Ask the front desk politely for compensation? Appreciate sharing your experiences
Applying for b4 and need to give what I’m looking for regarding salary. Applying for S2 in chicago for a specialty tax (ITS/M&A) position. CPA only. Would saying my minimum base is $100k be reasonable
