Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
More lay-off info in the news. Anyone impacted? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-08-21/wells-fargo-resumes-job-cuts-in-break-with-top-u-s-competitors
What's severance at PDub? Like a month per year?
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?
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.
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.
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..)
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?
I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?
I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
Anyone else rethinking their career options? Simu worked at Deloitte until he was laid off. 🤔
How many people has EY terminated in the last 3-6 months? I've heard about mass layoffs nationwide and would love to know the truth.
Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Which of these two can get a job quicker? A. The one who resigned and currently unemployed B. The one who got fired
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
If we had an advertising union no one would be worried if their projects paused right now because they would have health care and a weekly stipend if laid off. Unionize now!￼
i just fired someone today
Raise your hands if you value sleep over spending an extra +/- 30 minutes to get ready in the AM. Rock the natural look ladies (and gentlemen)!

Looking at exit opportunities and job description says Big 4 experience in addition to helping prepare FS and helping prepare tax forms. I mean in Big 4 you're either in audit or tax.
Currently at an agency interviewing for client side. Next round is with brand managers- what type of questions would you ask/ skills would you want from the brand side when working with a media manager?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 audit to an Accounting Advisory role in industry? How was your experience? Is the work life balance any different than B4?
Roll off pushed out for another 6 weeks. Guess my MD saw his own shadow while leaving the bathroom.

Folks any insights on Engagement Manager vs Cloud PM roles in the PSO org? Pros and cons. And what’s the comp range that one can expect at L6 or L5 level.
Hello, fish friends. Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend. I’m a new community leader for this bowl, and I was wondering — is there anything you’d like to see more of here? Things you’d like to see less of? Anything I can do to help? This bowl has helped me through my own mental health journey, and I hope it’s been beneficial to you, too. 💕
Deloitte-ers. Interviewing for a supervisor position in NZ. How difficult is it to relocate between offices nationally and internationally? Is overtime allowed? What do the bonuses look like? And finally how many hours are we expected to work daily? Any answers would be appreciated!
Ugh. First okcupid DTF and now hidden valley ranch BFD. Lazy and trying too hard at the same time. And to make it more relatable to suburban dads, they got the kid to say- I’ve got your bfd right here
