Which Big 4 has the least layoffs right now on the West Coast? If so, why? More clients, hired just enough, realistic goals, etc...?
After getting laid off 2 weeks ago, I fired off about 20 resumes to different places. I have not received any feedback at all. Any ideas how to get past the computer and in front of someone?
What are the reasons partners get fired (besides sexual harassment and expense report fraud)? What keeps a partner from coasting and raking in the bucks?
Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA

If anyone deserves to have layoffs, it’s those folks in TSA - Bunch of lazy people standing around and whiling their time chatting.
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Is it common practice in Singapore for firms to have a probation period for new joiners (duration at their discretion), during which new joiners can be fired at a week’s notice period?
4 years at Accenture were stressful, left to go to Deloitte for $22k salary bump and hope for better culture, then COVID layoff happened. If I try returning to Accenture, which is the best division to try returning to (with generic consulting skills) and why? Not looking for "division spirit/pride," looking for insight into which divisions have better pay/culture/WLB/etc. (constructive replies only please, I realize I sound like a 🤡)
I think im probably going to get fired in the next 6 months. Should I just start searching now.
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?
Got laid off - need legal advice on release agreement / severance document. Do y’all have any free legal resources or an org / law firm that I can contact to seek advice? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
Is it possible that massive layoffs, already expected, could just mean big numbers but not big pain like 2008 - 2009? Hear me out, the pain of 2008 was that there were large layoffs for months (cont)
Turned in my resignation today and it felt great. To the fish out there that are still searching - lots of love and luck. And if you can, try to stick it out without getting fired for a job (cont'd)
If you were to be laid off or fired today. How long do you think it take the average person to find a née job?

Been @ EY a month (frm PWC) as a sr. D wants to bring me in as a M (random LinkedIn post). What salary range should I expect? I said I need 150-175k. Realistic for 7yrs, 4yr consulting non target MBA?
i swear all my work is to just fudge the deliverable to give the client or my boss the end result they want. our work is built on a piling hot bed of BS
EY kids, has anyone ever negotiated with the partner during the annual compensation conversation? If so, how did it go?
Has anyone filed and had luck to expedite there refund from prior years by filling out form 911 - request for taxpayer advocate service assistance? If I do that, is that going to effect during any stage of the green card process?
Between blockfolio and Delta which one do you recommend? I'm currently using Blockfolio and find it difficult to keep track of total profit/loss on each of my coins.
Does PWC pay for MBA? Is it Full or Partial?
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
What does a background check look into? Past work history, criminals record? Would a DUI come up for a Consulting/ sales role? Does it matter? Asking for a friend (really!)
I asked my CFO (given they have worked with many HR) - what do the best HR do? They said HR can stay out of the fray. What does that mean to you? And what are your best techniques to being effective while staying out of the fray?

I took a rapid one and it was negative but they said it could be false due to my symptoms and exposure to someone who is positive. I need a new job...
You took away our contribution awards, reduced bonuses, and now you're looking to take away the best medical plan in exchange for a shitty one. "Happy Easter kids"
