Consulting

Community post for those Deloitters who just got laid off. Not to ask how/why, but to support each other in next steps and comfort those who are just plain sad.

Honestly OP you need to see it this way: I gave myself a couple days to eat frosting for dinner and binge watch Netflix but I'm a week since D-day and it's time to grind. Update your resume, reach out to your network, leverage LinkedIn and start making a list of where you want to work and what you want to do. Don't let getting laid off define your value because at the end of the day Deloitte doesn't give a fuck about anyone and you should let a dumbass corporation dictate your happiness. Enjoy the time you have to live unbound from email and pings, wake up when you want, and enjoy summer creeping in, get in shape since you haven't been able to on the road! But fucking pull your pants up and make them regret they every even considered letting you go.

This was not how I hoped the thread would go 😥 maybe all the folks laid off are hungover. Or just too sad to look at FB.

Accenture - y'all are too kind. @D7 - love the advice! Already planning my workout schedule and how to burn through my points. Thank god I don't have a family to support - can only imagine how much tougher it must be for them

OP- you are not judged by your fall but rather the way you get up! You are at a firm that is valued amongst all corporations out there. You will not have a problem finding a job. My wife is at another Big4 if your looking for a referral let me know. Stay strong!

My bad. I was being a jerk. Woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Did not realize the gravity of the situation. Accenture peeps thanks for helping out.

Accenture is more like TCS, Wipro. You can pretend that you're a real consulting firm but you're not.

Moving to SoCal and livin' life for a month if anyone wants to join. Then laying my points to rest with an overseas summer vacation. 😎 Embrace it, plant your networking seeds before you leave via farewell email and enjoy the ride.

I haven't gotten out of bed all day. I am not used to this feeling. But also have no energy to do anything about it at the moment.

Do you think considering someone your best friend requires that they also consider you as their best friend?
