Recently laid off, and struggling to land interviews. Anyone have tips or tricks on how to get an independent consultant role?
For those of you that got coached-out/fired from PA, what was the conversation like leading up to it?
Laid off 2 months ago - 111% utilization, glorifying appreciation from clients, great mid year reviews, recruiting & learning development internal initiatives. How do I stop feeling worthless?
there is a 17 y.o. singer with my face and my style that has millions of fans... and I just got laid off my job lol
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?
Deloitte’s rep in the market should go down. Layoff off people in the peak of a pandemic with social unrest is not okay. they couldn’t hold a month longer?
Anyone else out there concerned that the market is going to go bear and we’ll be back to the days of endless layoffs and starving for projects?
Heard through the grapevine. Bunch of analysts got fired for getting too drunk at DU and passed out in the bushes. Can anyone confirm or deny?
Layoffs are coming
How is the business going for all you consultants? Are your companies getting new projects? Any layoffs ?
How many client billable hours (excluding probono etc) are you supposed to be billing per month not to be fired? I range anywhere from 130 to 200 hours depending on the month.
Aight fam. Spent last year on the PIP, almost got fired mid year, but worked on firm initiatives like a machine through the year, and killed it on client projects. Finally out of the PIP. Fuck yeah!!!
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
Severance package negotiation? Any tips? Expecting a meeting with hr - I’m confident I’ll be sacked soon.
Do freelancers do better in recessions? (Possibly as backfill for all the layoffs.) Anyone still here who survived the last one around ‘08?
Anyone know of any good tools/resources with job prospects for 65+ trying to find employment after behind laid off during COVID? I imagine many have been forced into early retirement. Unfortunately, it appears the discrimination is very real when it comes to allowing “retirees” to participate in our workforce.
For those who survived layoffs and crises before, what things and actions made a difference? How'd you come out stronger? Did you pivot into something new entirely?
I hope every day that the assholes that fired me for bullshit reasons (other than my salary was too high and they were awful managers and worse people) would perish in flames.
Currently in industry and looking to come back to consulting. Looking at KPMG, PwC and Accenture as options to recruit for. Which has really good health insurance for maternity and how good was the maternity leave for you?
Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?
Anyone can tell the expected questions for automation testing 2yoe in sapient and what can b the salary
I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.
I haven't stayed at Marriott for a while but I just logged in and it looks like they think I'm Platinum. Last time I checked I was Gold (a year ago). Has this happened to anyone else?
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
I have 1-2 yr AML/KYC experience at a tier two firm in NYC -- what should my salary expectation be when searching for a new job?
10/2020: I got laid off due to COVID. 10/2020 to 05/2021: I put over a hundred job apps for industry roles. I got multiple interviews and many unsuccessful final rounds. 06/2021:I am happy to share that I’ve received an offer for a 6 figures role in IA which is a 66% bump from my previous role!If you got laid off or not and you’re still looking for a better opportunity, don’t give up because believing is achieving!
Anyone flying out of EWR? How is the security check? I am running late and will reach 30 mins before my flight. ;(
Working at a B4 and trying to get a return offer in a different group from the one I’m interning with. I’ve been networking crazy, but the recruiter says she has to see if my profile matches first. How can I take matters into my own hands to pivot?
If the client fucks up filing today like they fuck up everything else, I will loseeee my shit. YOU FOOLS!!! #inconceivable
What are EY's bonus rules for CFE/CPA?
When you come from another Big 4 and all anyone wants to talk to you about is your company.Guys I left for a reason......
I am writing this here because I hope that maybe a woman can understand where I am coming from and what I should do. I joined Accenture January 2020 as a level 11, long story short, I talked to my CC about mid year promotion since January as well as my director. I learned on Friday I’m not up for promotion. My CC tells me because he didn’t see any client input feedback in the PA tool so he didn’t enter anything for promotion. My director tells me he thought I started with Accenture January 2021
Does internship count towards Yoe? Internship was post grad and there was no break in employment.
How is the financial services consulting different across MBB? In terms of service offerings, areas of focus, culture
Hey Deloitte guy who tries to post about Biden’s declining mental health everyday...where you at Lou?
What do folks wear to work in the Big 4, specifically D? I am joining D soon and I was wondering if I need to buy formal wear. Currently at Amazon there’s no dress code so you can wear anything appropriate to work. Of course I am referring to when we all go back to office. Deloitte
I had my BCG interviews yesterday (remotely) and feel I completely bombed them. Yet, I haven’t heard back from recruiting thanking me for my interest. Is there still hope?
