During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
@MBB's how is your firms immune to the up-coming financial crisis. what type of projects due to see higher demand in marketplace in the crisis. (i hope its not all cost cutting projects - aka#layoffs)
Does anyone feel like those announcements that all summer interns will extended a full time offer to be a bit machiavellian? Especially in light of the “layoffs” to come
i just fired someone today
Does IBM put few% of people in all accounts in PIP just like accenture? I have heard IBM do layoff people..Is it true? If yes, what's the criteria? Has anyone has faced any such situation?
Anyone Global Services or can change my seats to economy plus? Taking my little brother to Hawaii after he's been laid off to refresh. We are both 6'4 so would appreciate the extra leg room coming from Dulles lol. Greatly appreciate the help!
Did any KPMG folks get laid off this week?
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
when I got laid off couple of months back, one of the leadership I worked closely with for couple of years said that my skills are not right for the xyz firm and that I should take it - contd
Ideas on when the exit ops competition for consultants will return to normal? Context: With all the layoffs (Deloitte) etc., the market has a lot more consultants going for the same jobs than normal.
That moment when you see all your work (verbatim from the deck) splayed across an ex-client’s new website, when you got fired because they thought it was weak.
I can’t think properly for a brief that wants to join in on the conversation of what’s happening. I feel it’s inappropriate to do so, but my boss expects “creative” ideas from me. If I don’t deliver, I have a feeling I could get fired. How do you deal with this?
I’m about to report my boss to HR around some inappropriate comments they made. This was during a team meeting. i’m in industry. Our boss is new- only two months with the company. The other manager and I have been there for six months. is this career suicide? My boss is very close with the leader of our group so it’s unlikely that she’ll get fired. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ me and my other manager are going to go to HR today to discuss what was said. They were sexist and racist comments.

Does anyone have suggestions on approaching a raise when your company uses ‘black box’ HR formulas/bell curve distributions? Went in-house straight out of law school at a Fortune 50. Have worked for 5 years and am eligible for a promotion. I don’t want to just get what the HR system spits out, and want to be proactive with management to influence a higher raise (15-20%+) based on my performance and the current market.
I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?
It’s been so long since travel that my bonvoy points are expiring faster than I can use them 😫
