Has anyone been fired in their first year in PA? What did you do afterwards to be successful?
I quit before the company laid off a few people on my department. Missed out on the severance package. I wish I had waited a few days to resign. Pretty sure I would’ve been one of them. I wouldn’t have cared either way.
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
How do incompetent, toxic Senior Managers not get fired when everyone who's ever worked for them has complained and/or quit while working for them? How do we get them gone??
Anyone knows if the COBRA insurance coverage bill that Biden signed (covers insurance premiums for individuals laid off) will show up on employment background check for someone who used it?
Severance package negotiation? Any tips? Expecting a meeting with hr - I’m confident I’ll be sacked soon.
How many client billable hours (excluding probono etc) are you supposed to be billing per month not to be fired? I range anywhere from 130 to 200 hours depending on the month.
Anyone know of any good tools/resources with job prospects for 65+ trying to find employment after behind laid off during COVID? I imagine many have been forced into early retirement. Unfortunately, it appears the discrimination is very real when it comes to allowing “retirees” to participate in our workforce.
Aight fam. Spent last year on the PIP, almost got fired mid year, but worked on firm initiatives like a machine through the year, and killed it on client projects. Finally out of the PIP. Fuck yeah!!!
The lions are about to hire the D coordinator from the Patriots who just lost to the D coordinator of the Eagles who the lions fired a few years ago 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ I will never see lions SB 🙁
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
I hope every day that the assholes that fired me for bullshit reasons (other than my salary was too high and they were awful managers and worse people) would perish in flames.
Chris Krebs was fired at DHS today... very bad move and it’s gonna take a while for his replacement to gain the same trust and confidence within the cybersecurity community. January 20th can’t come soon enough.
Does anyone else think the Delta variant will lead to shutdowns and layoffs again? I want to leave my job but fear being the first to get the chop if March 2020 repeats itself. Should I just jump ship already? If it helps, I’m not in travel PR.
It has been slow year. I started to hear there are layoffs going on in my group. I was wondering if there are signs your next? Also do you get an email to tell you are selected or something?
Suggestions on jeans under $100 for curvier women? Had a baby last year and nothing fits the same...
I used to have açaí bowls for breakfast while traveling because of per diem. Now that I’m bracing to be WFH for the long run, I want to start making nicer breakfasts to make me happier. Where are the best places to get açaí? Not the powder, the frozen packets
That one client where nothing ties 😡
With the DOL it would be illegal for firms to cut advisor grids due to lack of growth. That would present a clear conflict of interest that would hurt the client. Yes?
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Would you take a role at an agency with a good rep and interesting work for $140K? Or a role at Havas (😖) for $170K+? I’m leaning towards the former, but that Havas $$$ would be a life changer.
Question for all but especially Europe/Germany based fish: Appropriate way to handle the “how much do you want/range” question? Not desperate for the job but do really want it. Concerned with searching during COVID. Only a handful of consulting YOE behind me (but tons of industry exp).
Did you discuss salary/title before an offer was extended? What timeline from interview?
US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting
What’s your take on lonely boys? Chatting with a dude—hot, fit, great job. But made multiple references to being lonely cause he’s living alone, cause his friends have left the city cause of COVID. Super open and vulnerable with me before even going on a first date. Not hating, just don’t know what to make of the situation.
Which one to Join ? TCS - Java AWS IoT - 14.5 Gap Inc - Java Azure DevOps - 16-17 I want to shift my career towards Big Data or Data Engineering so in TCS i can get project aligning my aspirations. Or should I join GAP as its a captive and provides better package ?
Having my 1st baby and trying to figure out invites for the baby shower and could use input. My SIL /MIL won’t host a family shower for me. My mom thinks it’s tacky for her to host anything. My friend is hosting a shower & told me to invite anyone I want. I’d like to invite family on both sides. I don’t want my friend to be stuck with the bill, so my hubby said he’d pay for it; my mom freaked out and said it’s like I’m hosting one for myself. She wants to not invite any family now. Thoughts?
Anyone have any input on workplace culture and (I hate this phrase) “work life balance” at Seyfarth?
Anyone moved to BizOps in a start-up from Big 4 MC? Seems pointless trying to lateral to MBB/Big 4 strat just to then move on
Any suggestions for baby moon? Can’t travel out of the country and should travel before mid November. Live in Chicago.
If you're billing the same rate, you should get the same salary bands regardless of geography.
Interviewed with Google (virtual on-site) back in early Dec, emailed recruiter and no update. Am I being ghosted?
