For anyone who was laid off this year, were you able to negotiate your severance pay?

Why would that even be a possibility? They hold all the cards.

I agree., hoping someone found an avenue to negotiate

Haha this is a funny post. You really expect to negotiate you severance when you are being laid off?? Haha

Just got laid off. Why hire so many people if you don’t have the work to support the staff? We can’t always control our bench time. This firm really is the fucking worst


My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...

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


I don’t feel bad at all for people getting fired for making reckless remarks on their social media platforms about BLM. You have a choice to get on the right side of history, make sure you choose wisely.


I messed up. Told my roommate I would contribute to pay for a small couch since she sold the one she brought to our apartment with her for $ (got laid off). I am 21 and on a crazy strict budget. She is showing me $500-800 couches, while I was thinking of Facebook marketplace couches. If I could, I would give her the $ in the blink of an eye, but I literally CAN’T 😭 How do I tell her this after I already said I would? I know, I messed up here - salvageable?

I didn’t get laid off from Havas like so many others did yesterday, but I want to know how long I can work at this agency without losing my reputation. Industry people, I need real talk. How much like fools does the ad industry consider people who work at Havas? Is it understood in this climate that somtimes you just need a job or do we look like talentless sellouts for working here? When recruiters see books from a Havas employee, do they toss it straight into the garbage?


Had an expense violation and was fired from Deloitte and signed an offer, in the background check for employment verification, can I select the reason for leaving as “resigned”? Would they ever find out how I left Deloitte? Rather not disclose the reason for fear of losing the offer.

If you had a project car, what would it be? For me, it'd be a C3 Vette with a thoroughly modernized architecture and suspension. If it was a truly classic car, I'd just do a restomod, but I don't consider the C3 to really be a classic.

Controversial question - would you support a program where the gov pays say 20k if you decide to get sterilized with no kids? And maybe 15k if you have 1 and so on? You should have to be 21 years old to make the decision. Feel like it would be a way to help pull some out of poverty and can make a better life for themselves and if they already had a kid for their kid as well and would help prevent generational poverty.


Does anyone here work at PA Consulting? What’s it like? I’ve just been approached by them, not sure if I should go for it
