They will pip you first. If it was really bad, then they could let you go straight away I suppose. What is your utilization, and what is your goal?

My friends got fired with 5/6 months. No reason except i guess didn't have time to network enough:)

K1 is right, D3 is wrong ironically, lol

D4, what level and how long with the firm? Also, how am I wrong? I can note several examples where the pip was the first step followed by a separation. This is the case when we are not talking layoffs. On the other hand, if they are asked to cut dead weight mid year and layoff people, then all bets are off

You just answered your own question.. I've seen people at every level get let go without a PIP, not uncommon either... doesn't matter if others have had a PIP, that wasn't the question being asked. This is S&O btw

You should be worried about layoffs. Not firing.

Has anyone had experience with a biting toddler? My kid is the daycare biter (21 mo) - he never bites us or his older sisters so it’s not been a behavior we’ve seen at home since he was about 12 mo.

We’re at our wits end and stressed out waiting for the phone to ring for another early pickup. We role play sharing at home and practice using our words. Is there anything else we can be doing?
