How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
USA has been hit with the largest amount of layoffs in our industry, since I arrived here 10 years ago. What a f*** is going on? Is Trump the reason?
Staff sent out paper AR confirms and got them back. Manager saw them and asked why their wasn't fold marks. Turns out staff forged signatures cause he didn't send them. Partner came out and fired him!
Let’s say one of us gets laid off. Does it benefit our search in relation to opportunities through LinkedIn contacts if we don’t update our employment status? Does it hurt? Does it matter?
Can we get more information regarding ET layoffs? I don't think we have enough info here, need more. Have friends at EY, concerned for them.
Am I the only one weirded out by these mass spreadsheets of individuals who have been laid off? Is anyone really looking to these for hiring purposes?
Is end-of-year bonus season a lost cause at this point? (In a firm with no layoffs or pay cuts yet).
Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
Got laid off from my first job after graduating college & living home right now with family. Not sure what direction to go. Was doing a structured finance role and not sure if this is something I still want to do. Any suggestions on other positions in Finance/ looking for areas with growth and potential.
If you are separated from your firm and you are kept on payroll for an additional month to facilitate payout of severance when does the 60 day grace period count start? Is it on the last day on payrl?
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
Director Level Compensation Package. Does anyone have insight on what is typically included? Severance for instance, or bonus structure? This is for a medium size digital agency. thanks!
Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
I’ve been terminated by my firm. Is there a reason not to sign the separation agreement and accept severance?
The long and the short of it. I was laid off a couple of months ago, the clients on the account I ran loved me. Can I hit the client up about freelance? The non-solicitation part in my severance package mentions something about a year (which hasn’t passed yet), but still I’m no lawyer and it’s mostly mumbo jumbo to me.
I felt very good following Dana’s Town Hall. Having heard other networks are already facing furloughs and layoffs, did you feel as encouraged?
Any interns here? How's your remote internship going so far? Must be a weird experience...
I have CPA and am thinking about getting another certification. CFA may be too difficult for me. Would CFP a better and useful certification to get that will add value to you on resume/job?
Been getting a ton of recruiter outreach messages lately, and a lot of them are attractive roles that I would never even be on a shortlist for. I'm a mid-range analyst at best. Anyone else getting these messages too? Is the market really that thin? I find it a bit unbelievable because I spent two years unemployed and barely getting interviews prior to COVID.
Do your executives and ownership teams care about culture? Do they care about innovating? My top executive is very “stuck in their ways” and refuses to accept that he is creating disconnects with his team.
Thinking about switching to Accenture from EY. What's Accenture's expense policy like? Can you choose your own hotel? Breakfast, lunch, dinner amounts? Meal averaging if allowance? Per diem? Airlines?
How much does a partner referral help for boomerangs back to Big 4 in a different practice/service line?
Anyone familiar with Splunk? I’m having an exploratory convo with a recruiter tmrw but curious about the wlb@and pay as it compares to b4 consulting. TIA!
Hey ladies! If you’re a technology consultant right now at Accenture how much do you make? I’m having an interview soon and want to know what to ask for. Thanks!
Anyone have information about Deloitte Client Account Management (CAM) roles? Are they valued even though not billable?
The daily internal struggle of trying to decide if the project is legitimately poorly designed and managed, or if I'm just a dummy for not "getting it." 🤔

Hi all. My organization has formed a wellness committee and we’re looking to implement a Virtual Wellness Retreat. It is a voluntary event that will span a day or 2 that is full of guest speakers, activities, and information sessions around benefits. I was thinking of incorporating maybe a yoga session or two, collaborative virtual games, etc that will help employees take their mind off of work. I am working on this with 2 others within the organization. Does anyone have suggestions or guidance?
Done with Marriott. I’m moving to Hyatt 💯💯
Anyone got a six figure base as an AE? Hunting around for companies with 6-fig base and similar commission. Seems to be mostly field / enterprise pay.
What are employee referral bonuses where you work for a senior associate? Looking to test the waters at other firms but would like to also see if I can work out deals with friends on splitting a bonus
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..)
