Not as of now in the US. Can’t speak on ‘08

Yes layoffs in 2008. Targeted areas - not blanket cuts.

Cool - just curious

PwC Australia is having layoffs in consulting. Strategy& revenues dropped by half.

Holy hell. Is that s$ global, Australia, or US?

No layoffs in Canada

There will likely be some form of layoffs. They may be called performance related, however with the impact of covid in the non audit market, there will be some.

Deloitte tax projecting double digit (percentage) decrease to top and bottom line for FY21 - at least our office / region. Based on that, layoffs seem necessary. Fortunate that the folks laid off hit the market first; if the revenue decrease is truly that significant, have to imagine all other firms will be making the same difficult decisions.

I have good to great relationship with most of my family - immediate and extended - members. As I'm growing older, one thing I've started to notice is that I cannot seem to genuinely warm up to people who married into the family. Say for example, I have great rapport with my uncle who married my maternal aunt years ago but my recent sister-in-law, I find off putting. And this seems to be across the board. Anyone else notice anything similar? Or am I the only one turning into a curmudgeon?
