Anyone heard about layoffs??? 👀
When you find yourself contemplating how to get yourself fired and land a sweet severance package. You know you've been at it too long.
Entering my 15th week unstaffed for the year. Does Deloitte do layoffs for low utilization? Mine is around 60%
I have a meeting with my manager and the title of the invite is "Career discussion". Today, I tried asking if it was my feedback review. He just said "it's a much higher level discussion". Me fired?
Anyone ever encountered someone being fired while billable for another few months at least? I thought it was so odd the firm wouldn't wait and put client through that
Seems like a trend here. Lots of peeps on the bench + layoffs at a bunch of firms = recession is coming
Lol. Anyone else in danger of getting remixed? -- "Marrisa Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead."http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
Lots of farewell emails this week at PwC. People getting laid off? Has anyone heard anything about it?
PwC FS - do you guys know how they're determining layoffs? People who are in projects are getting the boot which is scary. Apparently there will be more rounds and this week was just the beginning.
Is traveling every week for work a valid reason to get out of jury duty? Reasoning being it would cause me to lose hours, hours are part of rating, bad rating can lead to being fired
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
What other firms are experiencing FS layoffs? Sounds like majority PwC based on previous posts.
Seems quite a few of us have been laid off in the past couple weeks - I vote we take a breather, pool our points and miles, and travel the world (on our own terms) together ✈️
For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
Fave new thing: chatting with older business dudes on the plane and making them vaguely uncomfortable by talking about my husband the way they talk about their wives.
Better to give 2-week notice on Friday or the next Monday? Or it doesn’t make any difference?
WFH is not a vacation!!!!! Just emailed a junior associate to call me whenever she could so we could discuss something. It’s been 2 hours. Radio silence. I’m not going to be chasing her (...)
PwC India Vs PwC SDC? Any thoughts?
Hi All, Is there any referral vacancy for Salesforce Developer (1yr 9 mnths exp.) In your organization? Please let me know if there are any. 😁 (anywhere in India)
Anyone have an opinion on how big of an impact credit score will have on my rate? I have a 730 but will have a 750 in a month... should I wait?
Anybody work for Reliant Rehab? We’re in the mid-Atlantic region and our COTAs were told Friday they are getting 9% pay cuts. I’m fairly new with Reliant and I can’t help but feel deflated that this is how employees are treated given the environment. I heard 4% pay cuts last year too. Is this happening in other rehabs?
This group so quiet
Millennials: lazy or simply different priorities? I personally find nothing wrong with a generational culture that encourages work-life balance.
Starting new engagement next week where we're replacing Accenture's failed project team 😝😝😝
[information] for anyone that used ACH and was impacted by UST/Luna drop, I was able to reverse the charge with my bank (Navy Federal) for the ones posted within the last 90 days. Some people got lucky too (from Citi, Wells Fargo, etc.). Just want to share my story in case it might be helpful to anyone. Stay strong.
Let’s talk second and third jobs? How many jobs do you have to make ends meet outside of the classroom?
At what age do you plan on retiring? I’d like to work until I’m 63 or so, but it doesn’t seem like many in our industry last that long. Is there an unspoken push to get rid of 60+year old partners? If you left consulting around 60, would it even be possible to get a job in industry? Seems like we would be too expensive and too old to be considered by most companies.
Does your workday account get linked to your work email just before you start, instead of your personal email? I was able to login before, but now it won't work and not getting the forgot password email...
Recently got an offer from Amazon for BI Engineer role. H1B transfer is applied and currently in RFE. Anyone else going through the same thing?
Aghaaaa just popping in to vent about lack of transparency in bonuses and raises. Something that is frankly rather frustrating.... I joined the firm 6 months ago and during my salary negotiations was told I’d be up for review and possible bump to my original ask at my six month review. I had an excellent six month review and have heard zero about the raise. I had to follow up on the issue of Bunyan and was finally told am getting a modest amount. Now I have to follow up on raises which I hear
