I'm not one to advocate people being fired, but how the fuck are these refs still employed??
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
Getting Laid 👍 > Getting Off 👍 > Getting Laid Off 👎
FYI...My friend that works at RSM got laid off. Tax associate. In the beginning she said they weren’t going to do layoffs. Glad I don’t work there anymore. Anyone at RSM can confirm?
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
What do the Partners on here think of how these layoffs are being handled? Very curious (P1, where are you???)
90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
Asking the masses for your take for a family member: If you are presented a severance package, are they negotiable? Have you had success in submitting redlines or getting more $$? How many weeks p

Best company/role/function if I only want to work 20-25 hours a week? Life should be lived and I work too much. Want to cut back and reorder my priorities.
Thoughts on Zoom job interview dress code? My instinct is a tailored dress or nice blouse. I feel like a blazer could come off as too formal but curious to know your thoughts/if anyone here has experience. Thanks in advance!
Tips for how you’re accumulating wealth with absolutely no financial inheritance/intelligence from parents? I want to retire early but am late in the investments game. I have a Roth IRA invested in a target date fund, max out my HSA and invest in REITS and ETFS, and contribute more to 401k when I have leftover $$. What do you guys do? Am i missing any smart moves here?

What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Does anyone know what the salary range is for a first year FDD Manager at the B4? HCOL city. TIA
Is the interview process to get into IBD harder or easier than top consulting firms like BCG/McKinsey/Bain? Where do the truly smart people work nowadays?
When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience. My BF is sure he wants them and I did too until I did the research on cost of childcare, lifestyle changes, and most importatntly the impact on career (my BF says family stays with you but works don't. I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!
Current situation: 120k salary, 500k equities(retirement+taxable) and roughly 30k cash checking plus upcoming sign on bonus of 20k in ~1.5 months Rent: 1150 Debt: Car loan: 34k Student loans: 9k CC debt on autopay: 3.5k for the month. How should I deploy my capital? 1) Save till I have 50k in checking. 2) bring cash balance slowly to 10k over 3 months by paying off car loans. 3) Ignore all debt, make regular payments, and continue Dollar cost averaging into equities. 4) other, pls explain
Diversity Pattern I keep noticing: pitch decks/campaigns. Half of the photos are of white people.. and the other half are black. No indian, hispanic, muslim & asian representation. It feels incredibly unbalanced. 🧐
Benefits form eating plant based or mostly plant based ( I’m thinking of keeping eggs in my diet but reducing/cutting out dairy) already a “junk food” vegetarian
Any ideas/suggestions on how to go about forming a diversity committee at a mid size regional law firm? I expect it would be met with some amount of resistance. Thanks!
