Checking in with those who were laid off a few months ago. How are you all doing? Are you having any luck finding open positions?
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
Been seeing posts where people are getting laid off even when staffed. What’s the rationale for that?
I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)

silly question: now we're heading into a recession, anyone has any ideas which functions would get laid off first: planning, analytics, dig or data operations?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Ladies' need some positive vibe. Laid off recently from a big 4 due to practice not having projects and also some amount of politics involved. Worked my ass of for the practice (contd.)

Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
How do you know if you’re in the hot seat/might get fired or if it’s just paranoia? I feel constantly on edge...

Is one’s network with their current firm overrated when it comes to jumping to another firm for a raise (especially at junior levels)? Always hear network is a reason to stay, but at what price...
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
