What will be the impact of Covid-19 and industry slump/downturn on people working in consulting companies ( specifically layoffs, bonuses, transfers, recruiting)?
What got you fired or almost fired?
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team.
When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
Confirmed layoffs beginning at Golin today.
Were you laid off from Twitter? Check this out! Legal Rep has good insight.
Curious - what does it take to get fired in big 4 consulting? Anyone have stories they are willing to share?
Hi everyone, I got laid off today and I am now urgently looking for a job. Anyone hiring Please DM or comment with any recommendations. I have real estate and consumer relations experience and I am looking to get into project management.
This is going to sound silly. What do people expect to come with this economy for public accounting? I know the majority of firms don’t have enough employees as is, but do we think there will be layoffs even so?
Got laid off, have a good severance to keep me going. As I’m searching for jobs I get a lot of pings from other consulting firms and recently got one from MBB. I’m not remotely interested in consulting anymore (Cotd)
Hey! I was affected by the recent tech layoffs (at Stripe) and was curious what others have done to get back on the horse quickly. Open to any and all suggestions! Currently I’ve been scouring Builtin which has yielded a few interviews here and there, but overall I feel like I’ve been moving too slowly . Thanks in advance!
Will tech salaries be readjusted with all these layoffs?
These skills will always be in demand, but curious to hear what happened from dot com bubble folks as well.

I’m interviewing at Google through the batch interview process and wrapped up my on-site interviews 2 weeks ago. Does anyone have any insight into what comes next? Am I being reviewed at HC now or does team matching come before HC?
Where can I find a good personal tax advisor? Would googling “Personal tax advisor recommendation” help?
Does anyone have any recommendations on beard grooming/maintenance?
Right now I’m just using beard oil by Nappy Styles, but I feel like my beard is so damn curly that it prevents outward growth.
Freelanced for 5 yrs, but interviewing for FT roles. I have a conference + vacation booked in April/May which would equate about 8-9 days OOO. If I land a job offer, how should I proceed?

Anyone find it incredibly difficult to manage connections and continue to network once you have kids? Definitely prefer spending time with family, but feel I’m not growing my network as effectively
Can someone please explain how much in hand I can expect and if there is something that should be changed.
Your colleague keeps busting your chops because he/she has a terrible sense of humor and doesn’t understand the inside joke. I got frustrated and tried to correct, but oh no no… I should’ve raise my voice even a little or I’m crossing the line.
Hey all - does anyone have open Art Director roles at the moment? My husband was recently laid off due to client budgets getting slashed (vs. performance) and would appreciate any leads. He worked on a ton of paid social creative, OOH, etc. and is client-facing. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone else feel uncomfortable when interviewees ask about diversity at your firm/office? I grew up in a very white area, and I don’t really notice/get bothered by lack of diversity. This recruitment cycle, a lot of non-white students asked if the lack of diversity at my office bothers me and asked why I think it’s so white. I feel like they expect me to have a very academic/astute response, but I just shrug and say I don’t notice it.
Anyone ever conducted an HR Systems Assessment? I need 😫 to put together a work plan for it and needed help outlining the hi-level tasks?
Hi fishes I am looking for a job in medical writing. Can anyone please provide references?@
Really wanting to revamp my closet after 2 kids. Where are you mamas shopping for non-work clothes? Struggling to find things that look good on post baby body. Plus if nursing friendly

2.5 YOE with project management and digital implementation. What’s the salary range for Delivery Assurance Analysts at McKinsey?
If I am listed as a speaker for something because I created the presentation, but not one of the primary presenters but have to go up on stage for Q&A, is it a bad look if I don’t answer a single question because the other presenters have a better grasp of the concept?
Anyone here from icrossing digital agency?
Has project management gone to shit? Or are tight budgets that drive short timelines and small team sizes cause for the chaos? I feel like 4 years ago I had time to throughly plan decks, teach and get taught things properly, and have actual review process for deliverables. Now it’s just trying not to drown each day.
Spent around 3.5 years in consulting and then went to industry. Thinking to boomerang back since I work more hours now than I previously did and constantly being micromanaged. Currently interviewing but want to ask a firm to buy me out of my equity via signing bonus. Is this a normal ask?
Which firm has the best expense process? I.e Protiviti does blue envelopes, others have went digital

Drinking from the fire hose. I’m on a fire drill.
Now they use firefighter jargons. What other types of jargons are used? (except for military)
How to negotiate being brought on at a higher level?
Was laid off and recently received an offer from a comparable consulting firm, but they want to bring me in at a level lower than what I was at before. How should I go about negotiating to be brought on at the same level I was at (two years of experience at level, would have gone up next performance year)?
Anyone who can speak to their experience at Extension School? Example - Harvard Extension School?
Seems like now with most classes being online anyway, better alternative with admissions and tuition.
Does anyone else constantly feel like they could do better? Grateful for my salary and job but hate how shameful I can be of my company and myself at times.
