Any insight from Deloitte folks on the announced layoffs? Has anyone from PwC or KPMG heard anything similar? EY has left the door open for layoffs, but hasn’t laid out specific plans yet. It feels inevitable though. While I don’t think I’m on the chopping block (famous last words), I do worry about the morale impact on my teams and the office in general. Curious to hear other perspectives.

OK gonna maybe open a can of worms here but I have to ask: it seems the sudden inflation we're seeing has taken the ins. ind. by surprise. The cost/expense projections done X yrs. ago for this and poss'y subsequent yrs. have been thrown off. Costs to repair/replace cars have shot up unexpectedly. Same for houses. Med costs have all gone up. Ins. cos. have relatively thin profit margins to begin with. There's talk of cost-cutting measures-- incl. layoffs. How realistic are these concerns?

Currently working at EY and will be hitting 6 months in June, while I was super excited- I have come to the fruition that it hasn't worked out for the best. Is it bad to leave around 6 months? I came in at a much lower level, even though I had several years of industry experience. It felt like a classic case of 'bait and switch' and really I was trying to get my foot in the door. Should I look at new opportunities or will this go against me? I am annoyed with myself for taking a lower role.
