If you were laid off from your last job do you think it will affected your negotiation in your next job?
People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected
Mic laid off its entire staff, sold the name to Bustle, and is relaunching with an entirely new staff. Read the union's statement on the fiasco.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Did any KPMG folks get laid off this week?
What's severance at PDub? Like a month per year?
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
How do I have the conversation with a Partner about writing a letter of rec for a PhD program? Will I put myself a risk of being laid off if I express interest in continuing my education?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Gonna join PwC M&A tax. What would be the market like if there’s another financial crisis (hopefully not). Are we the people who will be laid off first? Or we will be pulled to do tax compliance? Thanks.
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?
I'm dealing with life after a layoff and I don't think I'm alone here. 🐠 who have been laid off - can you share your experiences? How long was the job hunt? How did everything work out? Any advice?
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
I must confess that I have been purposefully making mistakes in my work to get my partner to yell at me 😩 he started not catching my mistakes so I had to make them more egregious. I fear that my kink might end up getting me fired 🥲
CRT is over and I was wondering if PwC will layoff people this year in Cyber as certain markets are not performing well.
SM here - if my work visa is not renewed, would I be eligible for severance? Current non compete has 3 months of severance included
In the final round of interview with a San Fran startup that’s about to go IPO... but I know I’d be also giving up lots of the structures & project flexibility & diversity offered here at big 4. What rationale would you use to make a decision?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
I understand the more responsibility you have the more you should be compensated. That aside, what salary range do you think you’d be truly content at? a) around $150K b) $200-250K c) more than $250K

What are some of the top boutique HR consulting firms (talent strategy, organizational culture, organizational development)?
Hopefully not too many can answer this... How much time did you take off after the passing of a child? ...Did you go back at 100% when you did go back?
Last flight of 2016! Hallelujah 🛫🙏🏻🙌🏻
Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?
Anyone have insight into Citi's WLB and culture? Got an offer to join their Digital team. Comp is basically where I am now (lower bonus percentages actually), but would be more of the work I like (from PMO to product). Culture and work hours will be a huge factor in my decision.
Looking to eventually break into FAANG PM and wondering if I need to pursue an MBA first. Non-target undergrad, but have SWE and product experience from current and previous roles. What’s the best path forward? Any advice would be hugely appreciated!
Have a little over 5 YOE & several manager level roles with experience in change management, SaaS, technology implementations, Salesforce, healthcare. Making $135k now - what roles can I look for with this experience / a pay bump? Would love to move into health/life sciences tech (or any tech company) & looking into both FAANG-type roles and smaller startups. Any advice on specific companies / roles to look into?
People have been asking me for referrals post COVID and I want to help everyone but I also know that some people won’t be a great fit. Is anyone else facing this? Does it hurt to refer not as strong candidates? I am assuming they will just get rejected?
Need 75K Hyatt Points. Plz DM
Trying to invest more in my skincare. Is the best way to begin to go to a dermatologist? (I don’t have any specific skin issues though) Follow-up: are dermatologists generally covered by insurance?
Associate. 80k. Looking to make a move potentially to a boutique firm that'll pay at least 5-10k less if I were to guess. But the culture and work seem amazing. Thoughts?
Interested in a career in life sciences/health space. What are some potential career options? My background is business with some tech exposure as well. I’d be open to pursuing a masters if there are better opportunities available with post graduation.
Anyone been to Disneyland lately? Are there still long lines? My wife and I have been under a rock staying at home due to covid and having a newborn at home and being extra safe, but I wanted to take my wife to Disneyland for Halloween. Is it relatively covid safe there?
Hey 🐠, in first 5 years if goal is to move around to maximize salary, how much does compensation growth slow down in jumps after 5 years? Don't want to job hop forever.
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
