Pros of Working in a Boys Club: The F Bathroom is now yours. Leave skin care. A hairbrush. Toothbrush. A cot. Buy a door lock. Move in. Sell your condo. Get fired then live rent-free in the vents.
Hey all, Been out of work for about a year now, been interviewing and actively since being laid off due to companys budget cut. Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.
I was placed on PIP due to unavailable projects... and right before my pip period was about the end, I got placed on a project. is it weird I was hoping to get fired and get my severance package?
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
When do the layoffs start?
How many people have you fired?
Any recently laid off cyber architects in the Chicago area? I’ve got a job opportunity at a local healthcare provider. DM me.
Is EY going to announce layoffs next week?
Attention Woke White People: Don’t be this woke white person. Laid off in April. Asked my ACD for final comps of my work for my portfolio. She told me it hadn’t gone public but to check back. I hit her up in May. Nothing. I hit her up in June. Nothing. I hit her up in August. Ignored...ignored...ignored in three separate texts. Finally emailed and mentioned reaching out to the C-level executives and like magic, boom! I get the work in 20 minutes flat. Don’t post BLM stuff if you’re a d*ck.
Lots of my ad friends have been laid off recently and are having trouble finding jobs in NYC. Wanted to share to give us all perspective in a place with so much job-hate talk.
Is there anyone at Leidos, CACI or Raytheon in the DC Metro who wants to refer my husband? He's in final adjudication for his TS/SCI with Full Scope Poly, but his entire team was laid off (COVID). Looking for another contractor to pick up his clearance sponsorship so they can use his intelligence and language skills (and so he doesn't have to start the clearance process from scratch).
3 years of PLM Windchill exp, and Supply chain engg coursework during MS. Recently laid off. Available immediately. Asking for referrals. Will be happy to talk more about my skill set. Thank you.
Anyone else out there concerned that the market is going to go bear and we’ll be back to the days of endless layoffs and starving for projects?
which firms offer fully remote positions?
Just got back to my pre-pregnancy weight this past week!! 🙌 Lost 35 lbs and 20 of them shed during covid. Took me 11 months but finally did it!! All it took was a global pandemic! Cheers 🥂
Life sucks sometimes. I had a miscarriage (in a hotel room of course...) in June and can’t seem to stop thinking that I was going to have a baby this month. Time to step back & appreciate what I have!
Quoted $100-120K, 10% bonus, no RSU for Sales Strategy & Ops at Salesforce (4.5 YOE). Super lowball right?
How many Fishbowl Love points for elite status?
What resource do you use to look for H1b sponsored jobs? Ideally have a filter for that requirement would be nice
Which firms are still letting people expense overtime meals, aka WFH hasn’t changed expense-ability?
@PWC fish. Does anyone know of someone who has successfully used AC21 portability to join on an EAD and have pwc take over green card sponsorship?
My H1B case got denied. What are my options ? I have a meeting with PWC Law later during the day, but I am starting to worry
Would appreciate thoughts on when to pay of student loans. Have about 40k left @ 4.5% (refinanced twice). I should be able to pay them off in one lump sum in a few months with personal savings. I’m currently paying the minimum, while saving aggressively in HYSA account , contributing to 401k to employer match, and contributing to Roth IRA. Does it make sense to just knock them out or should I increase investments focus? I know there’s likely not a “right” answer but what would you do?
My toddler is sick and at home with me. My dog just got out of unexpected emergency jaw surgery. I'm also sick, and have been consistently sick for about four weeks (just one cold after another). I'm on edge today, ready to yell even at my cat for annoying me. What time is an acceptable time to break out the Jameson?
Fish fam how much does your firm charge (if any) for processing your I140 (green card application) in premium?
What’s your price to quit right now expressed as a percentage of your total comp? Curious how this differs across firms.
If you started working at a company for like a year as a staff level, for example 2019-present, and this is reflected on LinkedIn, do you guys update any promotions to show it as (the date or year of promotion) -present... or just show it as 2019-present? I’ve seen people do the latter more but is that even right?
Anyone been through HireRight and can answer a quick question. Do they verify internships? I have 4 YOE and have an intern title from years ago that may come up as off (i.e. Risk Management Intern vs. Finance Intern) Will this be a huge flag? Should I proactively tell HR?
If all c-suites took a 10% pay cut 1) they would still be very well paid 2) the income gap would shrink by 10% 3) you could hire lots of people out of scope that could be funneled into mentorship programs, scholarships and overall diversity efforts.
