Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
I’ve found myself placed in a strategic leadership position despite not having a strategy background due to consistent layoffs. Any tips on how to grow my strategic chops? Books, newsletters?? Help!
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
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 🤷🏼♀️

Hi…I have an offer which includes a 6 month non-compete. I cannot remember ever having this in an offer letter before in the ad industry. Is this standard in pharma? Can I ask to have it removed? Or Is is standard to negotiate a compensatory severance package?
The only shortlists I care about right now are the ones finance is making. Congrats you are not being laid off and have moved to the final round of judging.

How do you tell management above you that you hate all of them with the fire of a thousand suns without getting fired?
