Do any of you live in constant fear of layoffs? Perhaps it's just my anxiety.

You don’t have to be a 2 to be laid off. Business needs can change and processes can update. I have been through layoffs in other companies, it sucks for sure but you can bounce back if you don’t give up

Every day it seems. I was about fired in the downturn for no real reason than getting the numbers up for a sale.

At ey. Unless there is a recession you don’t just get laid off

No, I'm not a 2. 4 to 5 rating in the "old" system.

Was laid off from a small firm back in the day (2010). I had a brand new baby and new mortgage. Was the worst day of my life at the time. Fast forward 8 years and my life is so much better than I could have ever imagined. A year and a half after I was laid off I got hired on at EY and am now a second year senior manager. I was also lucky to have been able to do a 3 year rotation overseas. If you are worried about being laid off maybe start looking for an exit plan as there is a whole world of possibilities.

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.

My bf was just asked to go back to the office (not an essential worker). We’re on the west coast so still have COVID cases. Are there workplace protections that he can use if he says he’s not comfortable with it yet? We live together and are both uncomfortable with the idea, but don’t want to risk him getting fired or experiencing backlash at work. He’s been working from home for 9 weeks already.

They must have really overcorrected on the layoffs. I've got people contacting me from way out in the fringes of my network weeks before rolling off during the holiday season. Manager shortage?

One of my senior managers is a boomerang and told me she was laid off when she was 7 months pregnant about 10 years ago. I think she was a senior or manager. She was in a specific group and everybody was laid off. It wasn’t performance based. Would you work at your company again if you were laid off?

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
