Feeling anxious, that an impending wave of layoffs is coming. As a way to anticipate, would everyone comment if they have been let go or know of them happening somewhere?

Unpopular opinion - Getting fired/let go is a great thing since it will teach you to be more prepared in the future, your job is never 100% safe, you get reminded you are an employee so no need to overwork, you get to find a better job, once you get back on your feet you won’t fear getting fired/let go anymore since you’ve already went through it and found another job!

I’m so beat. My agency leadership signed up to do the impossible for my client, put me on the hook to deliver it, and everyone who was there for the pitch-promises have run for the hills and are nowhere to be seen while I’m here holding the bag and struggling to deliver on the smoke and mirrors they sold. Key staff were laid off.
I feel abandoned and overwhelmed. It’s tempting to just let it all fail except then I know everyone would point to me. But still, tempting.

Moved to industry thinking it’d be easier and less stressful. Definitely easier but the stress now is coming from never knowing if I’m doing a good enough job because I’m not as busy as I used to be. I feel like I could get fired at any point. Also, there’s a huge emphasis here on meetings and socializing, whereas I’m more used to getting my stuff done and keeping the client happy. Can anyone relate? Is this what anxiety feels like?

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

I’m a junior litigation associate at a small firm, and the managing partner says things like “you aren’t providing value to the firm” or “you’re being paid to avoid mistakes like these” when I make mistakes due to, what I believe, to be a lack of guidance and instruction. As in, they could be easily avoided with a “please keep in mind X” or something like that. Thoughts?
