For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
Got laid off but found a job. Unfortunately I can’t start for like 2 months. Any ideas on jobs I could do in the meantime? Can’t drive so no Uber. Willing to do minimum wage, anything will help

My coworker, a senior copywriter, was just laid off. They've got tons of experience. I've seen them churn out 5 individual scripts in an hour. Any leads I can throw their way?
Are we headed towards a recession? PwC seems to be cutting costs and I've been hearing of layoffs at the other Big Four.
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
Got laid off - need legal advice on release agreement / severance document. Do y’all have any free legal resources or an org / law firm that I can contact to seek advice? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
If you got fired, would you care?
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.
Do you ever wish you get fired?
How early is too early to start looking for another job? Would you consider it a red flag for hiring if it’s been <1 year?

If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.

How do you cope when you’re overwhelmed? I’ve been working until 11pm the past two weeks minus 1 day (bc it was my birthday) and I see no end in sight. We are short a few people (quit, parental leave, etc) and only have a few associates left in my group so I am getting everything from 6 partners when I am truly only responsible for 2. I know taking time for working out/etc is helpful but I don’t have the time because I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep or I can’t function. Sigh.
Why is pharma/healthcare unpopular? Have seen a few things in the bowl and just curious!
Did anyone get rid of their Birchbox subscription halfway? It’s clearly my fault that I did not read that mid year cancellations can’t happen on a 12 month subscription and I’m sick of paying $15 each month - I honestly don’t even like the samples. I still have 7 months left and the customer care is just not helpful . Anyone worked around this before?
Can anyone tell me about vizient? Didn’t really know much about them but they’re offering me 33% raise in base from 150 to 200. Just randomly applied a few weeks back.
