Got laid off from my first job after graduating college & living home right now with family. Not sure what direction to go. Was doing a structured finance role and not sure if this is something I still want to do. Any suggestions on other positions in Finance/ looking for areas with growth and potential.
Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?
If you're on a PiP, is it better to quit just before the end stage, when you get fired, or better to get fired and collect unemployment, but also have a company-based termination on your record
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.
I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake

How bad is EY struggling? All I see on social media is that the firm is struggling/layoffs. What is going on? Is it just certain divisions or the entire firm?
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.

Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..
Am I the only one freaking out about layoffs at KPMG? (Can't update profile to KPMG for some reason) We are all on pins and needles waiting!!!
Got laid off a months ago and while I’m freelancing at the moment and making great $, I’m still upset about it. I really don’t think I deserved to be let go and my team would 100 percent agree. Cont
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'll be renovating my house (gut all existing bathrooms and kitchen, extend house to make room for an extra bathroom). It's currently my primary residence but I likely have to move in early 2022 to another city where I also own a house and then I plan to rent my current residence via Airbnb. What should I consider from a tax perspective? For example, if my current residence becomes an investment property before or when I renovate, does the renovation count as a tax deductible expense?
Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?

How difficult is it to jump from a Big4 to MBB?
Should I see baby driver or spiderman?
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Planning on interviewing with other Big4s soon. I’m a M2 in core tax compliance, NYC, making $138k currently. Making the move mainly for the salary raise. What would be the reasonable/satisfying salary I should be expecting to accept the offer? Thanks!
Any MBA 'consultant' hires in Accenture been denied raises because they are at the highest end of their level band? I've been denied raises 2 years in a row - so been locked into my MBA starting pay
I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship. Is it just something that ATS doesn't screen for usually? I'd hope a human is actually reading my resume. I don't want to be that person that says "yes, it's on my resume" lol
Real talk: does anyone else find all the bragging about super high billable hours kind of sad? There is more to life and it just reads like life not being lived. 😔
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
