You get a meeting invite from a Partner called “performance talk”. What’s happening now Isn’t just happening to low performers. It’s happening to people of various tenures and performance levels. When you join they thank you for your service and move you over to HR to explain the separation processes. Hasn’t happened to me but there are multiple threads talking about it

the subject is "meeting with *partner name*" that's it. nothing else to give you a hint also on a happier note, I've got a new job and very excited to get started next week!

I can assure you that this is also how BAH would do it. This is standard practice for firms who are downsizing

Pre-IPO BAH really did take care of people. It also helped that the firm was growing 15%/year. Now, your contract ends and you get a a letter saying find a contract in 2-3 weeks or we’re letting you go. If they say that in onboarding training now they are LYING.

Millennials: Born between 1980 - 1995 Gen Z: Born between 1996 - 2010 Every 24 year old now was either born in 1994 or 1995. Like I said before...we are millennials regardless of whatever you “think” a millennial / gen z’ers are.

Most consultants do not really understand how consulting firms make money... The cheaper the resource the higher the profit margins! Many consultants get comfortable becoming expensive to the firm without developing new marketable skill sets. The consultant is the product the consulting firm sells to organizations. From the firm’s perspective, it may be cheaper to get someone fresh out college to do the exact work an experienced consultant is doing...

This is part of a larger looming economy issue, for now the band-aid fix is to “move around”, but it’s only a matter of time before this issue hits every firm

@D1 damn 😐. Other 🐠, is this normal at your firms? For BAH you are just placed on the bench...

I was at BAH when that happened. One SM refused to show up to work thinking if he didn’t come in, he wouldn’t be fired 🤣
