There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
That’s going to leave a mark - 25k job cuts globally @ ACN https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8660159/Hundreds-Australian-jobs-risk-Accenture-slashes-workforce.html
Got laid off a month ago after 1.5 years despite great snapshots and utilization. Was just offered a consulting position at a much smaller local firm for $5,000 less than what I was making before
Anyone looking for a freelance graphic designer or illustrator? Just got laid off, and could use something to hold me over.
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
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!
With the W&K layoffs ... 1. Recruiters are getting psyched. 2. Freelancers are even more unnerved. 3. Axe will fall on people phoning it in at other shops. What are your other predictions ? People leave ad game altogether?
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..)
If my firm mandates the vaccine and I don’t provide proof, do they have to pay me severance when they fire me? FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m vaccinated, I just don’t want to work here anymore and I would like some extra $$$ 😂😂😂😂
Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.
Would you choose an investment job at a private, partner-owned long only fund where you’re guaranteed to never lose your job& can be a multimillionaire; or at a very top L/S HF where the bottom performers are fired each year, but you could make multimillions in a good year? Another related q, would you forego the offer at the first place to potentially get the offer at the second place, knowing it’s very competitive? Assume you’re target background, at another top fund, good work ethics
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Nothing can make me care anymore. I do the bare minimum and just wait for people to notice so I can get fired… I know I can do a better job but I can’t find the motivation at all, like what I’m doing just doesn’t matter. Existential crisis?
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
My partner and I are thinking about moving to NYC! Are there any CW jobs there right now or is it totally oversaturated from layoffs?
I have a chronic illness and WFH has saved my career. There is no way I would have been able to commute to and work in an office consistently. Now, none of my coworkers even know I’m sick.
Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
Can someone explain how they prioritize IRA after hitting the income limit so it is no longer tax deductible? I believe it becomes lower priority than HSA and 401k. Thanks!
Anyone interviewed for any roles with Amazon FinTech? How's the team? What was the process like and what is the $ like?
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
Let’s talk MBA resumes for consultants. Would you describe a project based on results for the client or results that you personally drove? For diligences, should you include the bid amount?
Alvarez & Marsal - What’s the average/target utilization (billable utilization) percentage for a Senior Associate in PEPI?
Have workshop I'm leading in a few hours, have not slept because of nerves and feel sick. Clients love me but I still have so much anxiety. Does this ever end?
Is it possible to frame staff aug experience in an interview to sell myself for a consulting strategy role? Or at least something less mundane...
Wondering if any of you typically get a holiday gift for the Exec you support, and if you do, what do you typically gift them?
Anyone looking for a position in Data Analytics or Data Engineering? I am looking for candidates with 3-6 years of experience in those fields who would be excited to join a growing team within a TMT strategy consultancy
Looking to buy our first home. Any recommendations on banks that offer mortgages on H1B in NJ?
Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
Should I just get an MBA and go into marketing? Even as a CD, there isn’t really much autonomy
For everyone downplaying the economic impact of COVID-19, please research the collateral damage of this ... start with the increase in suicides
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Anyone on here complete grad school through GSAP and go back to Deloitte and have any pro tips for how to do it right? (Max reimbursement, things to do before you leave, benefits, etc.)
What’s the ethics around conflict of interest? I can see that you shouldn’t work for direct competitors directly (ie Delta and United), but what about agencies (ie Ogilvy and Publicis)? Or even by client (ie multiple agencies ok but you don’t handle Toyota with Ogilvy and Nissan at Publicis)? Assume it’s not explicitly stated contractually.
