000’s have been laid off. Have been wondering how we can come together as a community and help each other. Inviting best minds here to ideate how we can flip the struggle into an opportunity, e.g. create a separate LinkedIn group or Bowl for LetGo folks, offer references and opportunities to those exited, creating an inventory of People-Skills and engaging this pool directly with clients, offering counselling and mentoring...Ideas anybody?
My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.

Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC.

Should I take the money and run?

Experienced associate found an error in one sample and tells me they are immaterial so I gotta tell this person you can’t mark a sample below posting, gotta project it. I then look into the error and they marked a difference in the control for a recon we use in the sample calcs as immaterial due to rounding but it’s like way over the precision we document. I’m heated. No concept of materiality.
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)
