You're welcome

Are you actually going to Deloitte?

Can you say you're going to a competitor even if you're not just to collect the benefits

Isn’t it standard to terminate asap if you’re going to a competitor, specially at B4?

I gave 3 years notice but they only paid for 2.5 due to some complicated Inflation logic 😭🥺

Stop spreading fear. You were walked out, but you were certainly paid out the length of your notice period.

On one hand I want to say I'm happy for you and things will turn out great but you already know everything will be more or less the same but with different color palettes and a higher paycheck (assuming you're getting the standard competitor salary / role bump for the switch.)

So, for a data point, it looks like I am working until the last moment at PwC.

If you go to a competitor, this is common.

I bet they just paid you out for your two weeks. Like every other big 4 firm would do.

So are the layoffs at Deloitte over ?

Hello! I’d like to share an experience and hopefully receive guidance.

I spent two years as an executive, and while I was providing what I believe was impactful work, and receiving praises across the board, I got fired from one day to the other without any explanation.

After a few weeks, some managers (who were under me) shared that there had been a while campaign raised against me for a couple of months by others VPs and shareholders. 1/2

Does anyone have suggestions for how to negotiate a severance? I was laid off with zero warning after being told my job was secure. They blindsided me.

They’re also trying to get me to sign the NDA ASAP so we can “leave on good terms”. They made sure to draw my attention to the non disparagement clause. I have 21 days to sign, so not sure what that means from a risk factor situation for them.

I asked for additional comp and health insurance. They came back with slightly better package.

Has anyone asked for a pay raise for the increased amount of responsibilities that was not originally asked or discussed in job description. It's been over 1yr and I have few certs. I made impact on my team. They value what I bring to them, but workloads increased more than my main role. I think it's fair to ask for a better pay raise. What do you think? Or should I just moved on to another company? What example information can I talk to my manager to negotiate? I'm underpaid ~14%. Need guidance

Not much difference in terms compensation.

Expecting your valuable guidance.
