Got laid off today. And you know what's more offensive than being laid off? They spelled my name wrong in all the paperwork. That's how much our companies care about us worker bees friends

Same thing happened to me at my old place but the agency was/is a joke anyway so it wasn’t even a surprise. Just showed their complete lack of know how.

Need to fill out my job duties starting way back as an intern and provide supervisor information.

Deloitte Slaughter, Part II - There’s a new story out of the Deloitte gossip machine, unverified for now. It seems they will be going through another bigger round of layoffs in the fall, once the voluntary program expires (mid-Sept). They already have a couple of scenarios and are populating names in each of these, mostly based on metrics. Anyone else hear this? When will the bloodbath stop...

I was laid off 2 months ago. I have 2 offers now: (1) staffing agency that has lots of experience with H1b transfers and (2) Series A startup that found me through Linkedin and I will be their first hire for my specific department but this will also be their first time sponsoring an H1B. The staffing agency is a safe bet because of the immigration issues. On the other hand, the startup opportunity will be an amazing step for my career. Is it risky to file for H1B with Series A startup?

I’ve got a really good job. Wasn’t looking to move but a big 4 consulting firm reached out. I received a very generous/life changing offer. I’m so worried about work/life balance if I take this offer. Also worried about layoffs in a year or two when the market gets back to normal. I’ve got an infant and a 5 year old. I know that I can manage my current workload. I don’t want to pass up a great opportunity but I’ve got to be available for my family too!

I was laid off in April and have been freelancing. Have consistently been forced by large agencies to work on W2 for reduced rates. The ECDs I answer into treat me like I’m full time and expect nights and weekends, even client meetings. They’re under the impression freelancers are getting paid REALLY well and should be grateful. They have overtime stated in the contract but won’t pay it. This market has left creatives totally powerless.
