I have a meeting with my manager and the title of the invite is "Career discussion". Today, I tried asking if it was my feedback review. He just said "it's a much higher level discussion". Me fired?
Anyone ever encountered someone being fired while billable for another few months at least? I thought it was so odd the firm wouldn't wait and put client through that
Anyone else hear about layoffs coming for S& people with low bill-ability? Heard this from a PwCer...any specific industry or region targets?
Remix? Really? -- "Ms. Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead." http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
Lol. Anyone else in danger of getting remixed? -- "Marrisa Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead."http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
Lots of farewell emails this week at PwC. People getting laid off? Has anyone heard anything about it?
Is traveling every week for work a valid reason to get out of jury duty? Reasoning being it would cause me to lose hours, hours are part of rating, bad rating can lead to being fired
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
Any layoffs in big4?
An MD gave me a little more info around the layoffs. 200+ across levels (associate to partner) within FS. Mostly banking.
Seems quite a few of us have been laid off in the past couple weeks - I vote we take a breather, pool our points and miles, and travel the world (on our own terms) together ✈️
Layoffs... Any others have friends on the Advisory side? Guess it fits with the cyclical nature of that line of business.
For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
I keep reading all these posts about firms laying off a ton of people. Can someone explain what happens after one gets laid off? Like do they just fire you and that's it? What happens to the pay? Etc.
Are any of the firms planning more layoffs? Any specific industries? Is it just lack of demand causing this?
Just wanna say I love working in digital. I can dye my hair purple and not get fired! 💜 #loveit #notveryanonymous #gettingmyhairdid

Got an offer at one of the MBB and in process for Accenture in their Strategy division (CEO & ES). For MBB, would be coming at a level below (PL/EM) with 1 year tenure and Accenture would be lateral (SM). Leaning towards the MBB offer as it has been my dream to get into MBB and the overall value proposition. Is there any strong reason to prioritize Accenture Strategy over MBB in this case? Would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.

When is it a good time to tell your manager you're quitting (to industry, so not to competitor)? Does the 2 week rule still apply nowadays or are folks doing it later?
