Those of you who have been fired in the past, what was the reason and was it a blessing I disguise?
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.
Question with regards to layoff talks. Are those who are being let go on the bench or being released while on projects? I haven't heard of many ACN layoffs in the former situation...
The partner has scheduled a call after the final interview, would it be a nice rejection? lol
I'm an engineer w/ BS/MS, have had engineer, PM and Tech Sales roles. I am interested in consulting and would love to speak more with some current employees about a referral! I am curious about the different job functions available. I've taken the GMAT as well to apply to MBA programs, unsure about how important bschool is in order to break into consulting.
Anyone recently move cross country? What moving service did you use? We used Uhaul box before which was fine (and sweaty) but we are looking for actual movers this time!
I put in my two weeks about a week and a half ago. Upon putting in my two weeks, I immediately told all my managers so we can start planning for transition. They all sat on it and now I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to transition work. I kinda want to push back because I'm super overwhelmed and I honestly don't know how I'll get through everything they want me to do without working the whole weekend. I am just being a big baby? Or ideas of how to push back?

How do you prepare for case interviews with industry companies? I imagine the best way to understand their background is looking at the platform, their monetization strategies, earnings reports etc etc. What kind of possible questions could be asked in the case scenario?
Looking for career advice. Worked in Supply Chain and Strategic Sourcing for 8 years, at Northrop and currently at Amgen. MBA from USC. Exploring options of moving over to Supply Chain Consulting or M&A. I would appreciate any feedback on recommended career paths.

Parent partners - how do you get help for your children while being able to take care of your business? Au pairs? Nannys? Family? Wife is pregnant with our first and trying to formulate a support plan so I don't fall too far behind professionally...
Miss my travel points. Anybody have any ideas for point boosting? Was thinking about flipping high value tickets..
LA vs San Diego? Can someone tell me the pros and cons of each city? I want to move to the west coast in the next year or so and debating between the two cities. San Diego looks like a beautiful city but seems to lack diversity from what I heard. Some background on me: late 20s, I’m black & latina, single, I have a puppy, I’m from NY but currently live in Boston, vegan, pretty active, people person but also enjoy a good amount of time to myself. Thanks in advance!
Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.
