Lmao. Your performance is that bad OP?

"Laid off" no. "Fired" yes. Laid off is not performance/cause-related and is dependant on the firm's financial outlook. If you're on a project then you're generating revenue / positive cash flow and won't be laid off. If your project is suddenly cancelled and they don't think your skillset will be able to generate revenue over the next year or so then they might lay you off

Yes, and when it happens, you'd BEST do some Star Wars kid style freak out at the client or go all Office Space on 'em for maximum good stories to tell later

No

Make sure you are a key member and team can't do it without you, you'd won't be fired.

I’ve seen it happen in groups at PwC where they were forced to cut headcount and politics came into play. It’s unusual, but it can happen when there are major layoffs occurring.

Yes, I have had that on my project

Yup

Had a guy who was rolled off. Monday call with partner and left the firm on Tuesday.

So anyone seen a layoff while staffed and performance is NOT an issue?

Seen layoff while staffed but pretty sure they were all performance issues

Yes, specially with the new stupid performance review process. I just saw 10 layoffs in the Cybersecurity advisory area. All were staffed.
