If you know your performance is being monitored after being reprimanded earlier in the month and the HR randomly sets up a meeting with you at the end of the month regarding a review of your performance, is that generally a good thing or a bad thing?

I feel like I'm about to be fired and I'm really anxious about it. At the same time, I've kind of lost care because I've been battling depression and anxiety for a while and I've recently realized I've lost interest in the legal field altogether.

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.

Hello fello fishes,

I'm looking forward to a change in either Big4 or in MBBs in Delhi. I'm currently on a project outside Delhi and wishes to relocate back. Could somebody help me with vacancy and referral? Much thanks in advance! :)

After reading so many posts it seems like 90% people in this bowl are searching for partners somewhere. We are all educated enough and work in similar profession so I am thinking why not create our proposals(pic not necessary initially) and start sharing over with each other? If you like the proposal you can then talk and take it forward. Since families are not be involved here I think there'd be no shyness/awkwardness in stating your requirements. Let me know what you all think. No Timepassers!
