Got laid off. Not completely unexpected but still stings. Everything on the table but difficult to decide path forward. Been doing this so long I never considered anything else. How do you prioritize?
Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
I had a dream that I forgot to mute on a weekend firmwide call, began gossiping with my roommie about who's fucking who & what a fluid-covered mess it was, &my boss fake fired me to teach me a lesson
The long and the short of it. I was laid off a couple of months ago, the clients on the account I ran loved me. Can I hit the client up about freelance? The non-solicitation part in my severance package mentions something about a year (which hasn’t passed yet), but still I’m no lawyer and it’s mostly mumbo jumbo to me.
Feeling really down and anxious about the fact that a few of my close team members were laid off. Tips for adjusting into my new work environment and continuing to job search without feeling so anxious all the time?
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
Nothing can make me care anymore. I do the bare minimum and just wait for people to notice so I can get fired… I know I can do a better job but I can’t find the motivation at all, like what I’m doing just doesn’t matter. Existential crisis?
Didn’t pass probation as a new grad hire after 3 months. Everyone tells me you have to fk up majorly to be fired as a grad….guess I fked up lol
Any tips on negotiating severance package? What’s typical package for a NY lay off? How do we maximize the money we receive? I’ve also read things on the internet that say “don’t sign it on the spot.”
Update got fired: Based on previous post to pick up a Lower CTC (offer $$) or not I'm planning on taking a lower money job How's a response to my future hire a year later I got laid off due to covid. I picked up this opportunity to pay my bills (40% lower Money) So had to do this for a while

Would going to another consulting firm one month after I get my green card impact my naturalization application?
Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!

What is the best platform to buy crypto? Only interested in the big guys (BTC, ETH, etc.) Have been hearing Coinbase Pro. Any downside of that? I also heard crypto.com because they allow credit card purchases. Any advice? Brand new to crypto investing. Plan to buy & hold rather than trade. Thanks!
I am looking to go in-house and I thought all of the interviews went well at one company. A week after my last interview, the internal recruiter contacted me just to touch base. 3 days later, I received an offer from another company and I contacted the recruiter from the job I want to tell her and she said she would check with the hiring manager and that we should she responded, “stay in close touch.” I emailed today casually to see if there was any update. No answer, any insight into why?

I got an offer from Deloitte and they have started my H1B transfer. In the meantime I got an interview call from Google (Which I would prefer over Deloitte). Can I continue interviewing while H1B transfer is in progress? If I get the second offer (Which is a big IF) can I so no to Deloitte at that point after the H1B is approved?
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.
