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?

Am I a failure if I remain a senior associate for 5 years? Came in as part of an acquisition. Never really wanted the big 4 life and feeling like I don't have what it takes. Also in my 30s.
FAANG - moving to high COL city? Hi all - received an offer from FAANG for about a 30% increase in compensation and am looking for input. A few of the factors I'm considering: I think the new role will be more rewarding in terms of experience in the long run and with better exit opps should I choose to leave. I am not enjoying my current position in B4 consulting. The more I progress in consulting, the less I like it. It honestly seems like a bunch of BS (continued).
Whats the best time to jump ship from one big 4 to other between now to January without affecting my next year’s raise and bonus? (SC here and would like to join next firm as late as possible)
For people who came to Big 4 as an experienced senior, how long did it take to make manager from when you started?
So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?
Too many layoffs. The industry is just hurting too much. Time for client side. But tough to do as a Planner. Thanks for listening
I'm thinking about moving from a smaller firm to a Big 4. I'm getting mixed reviews as to which is a good fit for me. Any advice?

3 months in, and received an interview from a large video game company. Package would most likely be similar. I haven’t even been staffed on my first project yet. How to handle this situation? Thanks!
Currently without employment and in a bit of a dilemma: My non preferred company did a bait and switch with the role, took a month to get me the e-contract with start date TBD (2-3 weeks down the line). My preferred company is interviewing super slowly, the position is senior, pay is great and commute is lower. Ok to tell non preferred to wait longer or will it make HR mad at me and take the offer away?
What have organizations been doing for virtual culture building? Has anyone tried a virtual water cooler idea and how did that work?

TFW you get the best suite at the Westin, and within 5 seconds your feelings go from "sweet!" (Laugh at your own pun), to "s#*t, I spend too much time away from my wife".
Is it a vacation if your boss emails every 10 minutes *around the clock*? Stupid me let IT install Outlook on my phone. PEOPLE. If you are in leadership, have the good sense not to email your team ‘round the clock. ESPECIALLY if your employees have been generous enough to use their personal phones to keep in touch. They need a break from work and a break from you. Every time your name pops up on their screen, it’s a micro PTSD moment. Put that shit in your outbox and send it in the morning.
