No, they don’t. I haven’t even heard of an occasional one. People I know who tried to get laid off couldn’t.

Yes, purposely not looking for projects for months but flying under the radar and getting staffed 4-5 months later

I think the last major ones were around 2008/2009, but it was like 30% of the folks. The buy outs were nice thiugh... I think my brother got ~4 months as a Manager (plus all PTO).

First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s... I also ask around yet everyone says they’re fine. It’s still considered busy season here since I’m at midsize and it feels wrong not hitting atleast 40 billable hours. It would suck if I got laid off cause of it. 🥴

I’d like to know if I’m being stupid for being underpaid. I’m currently being paid 80k as an A2 in TAS (HCOL), however I’ve been an “acting senior” for the past 6 months. I have great flexibility and I’m treated well at my current firm. And my office is only 20mins away. If I left, I’d join as a senior and make 20k more, but I may give up flexibility, and the commute would be longer. I’m a single father with young kids, so flexibility is important to me. Career goals = partner. Any opinions?
