Considering joining Deloitte GPS but been hearing/reading about layoffs. Does anyone know if this situation has improved? Or is it still a risky move to make the jump? Thanks!

Interviewed with them in December, got positive feedback and then got ghosted. Contacted me to interview again two months later with the same group of people and got positive feedback but they told me they got funding issues. From what I can tell, Deloitte is not in a good shape rn and is looking for cheap labor. Just my honest opinion

helpful

This is all based on various conversations with Deloitte people

Hmm, doesn't look like many/any GPS position on the careers site that align for me, bummer. Wouldn't mind too much trying to be a boomerang.

Layoffs were concentrated to specific groups. Plenty of groups are hiring.

Overall good- depends on the office, but ATL and DC are great for healthcare (CDC, military health, etc)

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.

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.

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.
