Lol can you please just tell us? Or just at least name two firms and it's one of the two or something. Your new firm 1. Won't stalk you on the anonymous app fishbowl and 2. Won't revoke your acceptance bc you were laid off

@PwC OP: Given the nature of sensitivity, I applaud you giving out this much of info, if not more! Thanks Bud. Nonetheless, awaiting your transition and forthcoming response on this chat. All the best to an amazing start ;)

Haha :) All I want to add is that, never take lay offs personally. I heard about another wave of lay offs today. Just keep your head up and focus! See the potential in yourself and take this as an opportunity to switch to a better firm where you will be evaluated for the quality of your work, not politics

Yes, I was an advisory associate. Too early to reveal details about my new company, but it certainly beats PwC in terms of culture and prestige. Will keep you guys posted... Thanks for all the great wishes 🙏🏻

Never thought that this would attract such positive response from the community. We never discover the true potential in ourselves until we are forced to. I am grateful for the fact that I was laid off, but wish the best to my colleagues who still work at PwC.
