Any more word on the PwC Forensics layoffs? It appears to be going on in multiple markets.
Which agencies in San Francisco are weathering the storm the best? I haven’t seen much about layoffs or furloughs. It seems like the bigger agencies in NY have been hit harder.
got laid off in a smaller market. thinking about moving but my partner is committed to living here long term. there aren’t many agencies around. what do I do?
TFW a "senior copywriter" writes "your" instead of "you're". Proper usage: Get your shit together or you're fired.
This is just weird. (Layoffs a week or so ago)
I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘
Everyone I know who uses backpacks has gotten fired. It's called Darwinism, survival of the fittest nerds.
With the backdrop of Deloitte bugling revenue for FY 2020, let’s have a moment of silence for the laid off Deloitte staff, who’s jobs could have been kept if Deloitte wasn’t the outsourcing leader.
More layoffs at 360i. Everyone ok?
So someone I know asked HR about a boot policy. When he found out that there wasn’t one, but his boss said there was (who gave the guys $ for boots and the claimed it on his expense reimbursements as something else) the boss got mad at him for askingHR (and in trouble for the expense reimbursements) and then 2 days later laid off my friend. There appears to be no notice of bad performance and this person always was the first person on the job site ready to work. Thoughts?
Agency started losing alot of business over past few months. Lots of people left& weren't replaced. Several freelancers were laid off. Starting to see GOOD people let go fo performance. Should I Quit?
General question: If you get laid off from a job, and have ~6 month’s of expenses saved, would you simply focus on getting a new job, or getting a new job that pays more? Should you ever take a pay cut, especially in times like these?
Very nervous about remote onboarding in the FP&A role, any advice? I have this image of me not understanding sh*t and getting fired in day 1.
Would you rather get promoted or laid off at your current firm (and collect a sweet severance package)? Why/why not?
Layoffs - I heard a lot of layoffs at Huron and Studer of Directors and above. Time to jump ship ?
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
How many SPG points do you have?
I have an interview at Mercer coming up but don’t know much about the culture. Can anyone tell me about the work life balance, compensation, diversity, etc?
Does MBB, Strategy&, LEK, ATK etc allow rotational programs in different countries (London, UK, etc)? How competitive are those rotations to get into?
Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen). It’s for a biz ops role and the recruiter said the call would be just behavioral. Wondering if anyone got case/problem solving questions in the first round or if those were for the final round. Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻
Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning. I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.
What are some good agency internship programs other than the Kennedys (Amsterdam/London) or The Pipe (Ogilvy London)? Even better if the chances of hiring are high.
Booth or Columbia? Details: I’m from the NE originally and want to end up in NYC/the north east. My near-term goal is to either end up at MBB in Strategy or Amazon/Google for Corporate Strategy
In one month we cleard out a 5000 sq ft office space and turned it into a lab running high throughput COVID pcr tests (600 per day rn).
Did you transfer your 401k from your ex-employer to your current employer? If not, what did you do with it? I’m so lost. It’s my first time switching jobs. I have money in my spending account too. How should I spend it in the last 2 weeks?
What should be the next certification that I should get? I have the CFE. I’m targeting the CFCS and the ACAMS as the next ones that I should get. Any thoughts on which one I should get 1st? Pros/Cons
I start work early to fit my client sched. By the time I pull 10-11 hrs it’s only 4. Starting to get anxiety I’m not working long enough solely based on time of day. Tips on turning your brain off?
I need help as someone who is new to Big4 consulting culture. I completely bombed an engagement due to many factors and I’m now rolling off. What is the procedure to move forward?
(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
