Deloitte layoffs still happening. What the heck?

You guys need to be careful about posting topics like this. If a few underperformers get cut after mid year review that doesn't mean we are laying off. You create a sense of panic when you do this so if you don't know for sure there are mass layoffs maybe be a little more responsible about insinuating a layoff in a public forum and creating anxiety for everyone

Someone got fired on my project. Got a 4 last year and because of low util was probably going to get a 4 again this year. HR called again and said they didn't realize the person was staffed on the project, which was an issue with their process. But the decision was made so could not override it...

There's no layoffs happening. You guys need to chill

Not sure I understand - I'm having to decline 3-4 "urgent" project requests unsolicited every time I get close to my roll off date, and all I hear about is SMs and PPDs complaining because there's no one on the bench for odd jobs. We're tracking well over 100% of plan, how can there be layoffs?

like

I've gotten twos on all my projects but it's definitely a fearful culture. I've started actively searching for jobs just in case the axe falls on me. I had wanted to do GSAP at one point but I can't stay here thinking I could get fired.

like

M1 - the fearful culture is incredibly well-warranted. Claiming that only under-performers are being laid off is simply not the case. Every person at the firm can give you at least one example of a high performer who was released based on a silly factor such as not being staffed at the moment. Ignoring facts doesn't change facts. People deserve to be scared that layoffs have been happening (either in full force or sporadically) for more than eight months.

like

I don't care about layoffs of low performers, but it feels like more than that/the bar keeps shifting. Someone that our SM praised got laid off last week and during the last layoff in March, the top rated C on the project during project consensus for a 35 person project got laid off. It feels fake to say "low performers only" when I see these examples of good performers let go. Sure, they could have been flukes, but definitely creates a culture of fear.

like

Performers can get laid off for other reasons, you don't have the full picture. It sucks when people get fired but just because someone you heard is good got canned doesn't mean we're all on the chopping block

Right, just be careful and realize the impact. People get fired all the time, layoffs are scary for everyone and if there are threads titled "Deloitte layoffs" every week it creates a fearful culture that isn't warranted

Sounds like a bunch of one offs, lot of speculation as to why people are laid off, etc. Tax just had a legit layoff a few weeks ago in the hundreds on one day, but nobody else has. Just chill out a little bit
