Do you think it is quite possible to get fired by asking too many questions as an experienced senior 1? If so, i might get fired after this busy season.
I have a meeting with my HR lead on Friday regarding my termination. What questions should I ask? This is what I have so far... severance pay, health insurance benefits, PTO payout, other roles at the company, and my 401k vesting period. Anything else I should ask/bring up? ￼
You thought the last rounds of layoffs were bad? With continued political instability / uncertainty under Drumpf, companies will stop or slow spending on consulting and a bunch of us will get fired...
New C with unrelated background. Got offered a testing role but have no skills/interest in tech. Do I take it to just to get staffed or hold out? Also worried about slow downs/layoffs if benched
What's the deal with severance pay in New York State? I've heard both it's not required and I've heard it's required to pay 3 weeks for every year of employment. Anyone know what the real deal is?
Does anyone else struggle with being on the bench? It's been 4 weeks and it's starting to take a toll on me. How do you cope? Scared of being fired! Being passed over for analysts with more experience
Few people in the world make more money than Mark Reed, John Wren, Michael Roth or Arthur Sadoun. Cant they offer anything to avoid layoffs?
Can you get fired or laid off if you are on a short term disability leave? Does this call for a lawsuit if this happens?

Does anyone have any books/media to recommend on being an Asian in the USA / UK (and particularly being East or Southeast Asian)? Have just finished Big Little Man (Alex Tizon) and Severance (Ling Ma) both of which were excellent and captured a lot of complex feelings I hadn’t been able to put into words before...
Is it sad that I hate my agency so much I dream of getting fired? Because it would be better than working here while searching elsewhere?
Anyone can speak to the culture of Amazon’s accounting? They’ve been hiring like crazy and I started to wonder if this is a good exit option. I know it’s a big team, but any insights are highly appreciated!
Interviewing with BCG for Principal, Insurance Strategy. What should I expect comp and bonus to be? Just want to negotiate right.
Contract question: is it normal to only get benefits after 1 year in the UK? I was used to have them kick in after 3 months in North America...
Looking for a good room divider while we’re WFH. My husband and I share an office, our desks face each other. I don’t want to look at the back of his monitors / the disaster on his desk anymore so looking for something that goes between our desks. Something that muffles sound would be good as well but not required
Keeping count of how many people ask me "So what are your thoughts on Bitcoin?" this holiday weekend
Finalizing some work on my laptop while having breakfast in the hotel lobby. A man in the lobby starts heckling me that I’m working too hard and should loosen up. Can I get a do not disturb sign?

Need advice from moms that make more money than the spouse. I got a great offer for nice raise and career advancement but my husband now feels down saying he will not be able to catch up to me now... He is very supportive and proud of me, he never wanted a stay at home wife and loves that his wife has a career.
Has anyone ever been promoted to ACD only to feel like they were much happier at the Senior CW/AD level? I’m going through that right now and wondering if it will pass with time as I get more experience in the role. Or, if it doesn’t, what do you do about it? Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.
The extra time WFH has afforded has fueled my habit of going down reddit rabbit holes. What’s your favorite subreddit?
