Anyone heard about layoffs??? 👀
When you find yourself contemplating how to get yourself fired and land a sweet severance package. You know you've been at it too long.
Anyone else hear about layoffs coming for S& people with low bill-ability? Heard this from a PwCer...any specific industry or region targets?
Seems like a trend here. Lots of peeps on the bench + layoffs at a bunch of firms = recession is coming
Remix? Really? -- "Ms. Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead." http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
Is traveling every week for work a valid reason to get out of jury duty? Reasoning being it would cause me to lose hours, hours are part of rating, bad rating can lead to being fired
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?
An MD gave me a little more info around the layoffs. 200+ across levels (associate to partner) within FS. Mostly banking.
What other firms are experiencing FS layoffs? Sounds like majority PwC based on previous posts.
Layoffs... Any others have friends on the Advisory side? Guess it fits with the cyclical nature of that line of business.
For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
I keep reading all these posts about firms laying off a ton of people. Can someone explain what happens after one gets laid off? Like do they just fire you and that's it? What happens to the pay? Etc.
test on 1.1.5!

EY Question - Was looking on the job board and notice some SM level roles do not contain an element of sales development as a requirement for the position while others list it. Consulting service line. What’s the difference as I thought all SM jobs required sales?
Cute girl sitting next to me at the bar at W but she's so into her nook that she won't look up. Yes I'm still at a client site :(
What are you supposed to change your LinkedIn header to if you have a gap before starting a new role? Left my current job today but not starting a new one until mid-March, too soon to put my new role out there but it feels weird to kept the current role/company as well.
What age are you looking to retire?
If I interviewed with a firm (while still in grad school till May) and I go through HR screening and full interview, and they get back to me saying that they can’t give me an offer since I’m not a just in time hire, is that a cop out way of rejection or are they just that unorganized? Also, I gave them my number that might have been a little high.
Carol Baskin, amarite!?
Anybody who can help me with the contacts for some immigration attorneys who can review the documents for a change of visa status application (F1 OPT to B1/B2). Not looking for anything which is over $200/hour.
🐠- I am looking for some direction. My SO was furloughed earlier in the year for 3 months. Upon resuming the job in July, HR had confirmed that the 2020 PTO accruals not be prorated for the furloughed period. However, today they reached out to inform that 2020 PTO would be prorated and hence reduced. How to handle the situation? Any recourse?
Would anyone make lateral move comp wise if the job is a little more interesting than what you currently do?
Do you find that healthcare costs differ a lot based on cost of living? For example a dental cleaning in nyc vs Chicago
Does anyone else feel like you fake this persona for an interview then go back to who you really are after the fact?
