Got laid off today. Ironicly is I have been looking for a new job for over a year. I guess it's good that I no longer work in a toxic environment & no longer for a criminal. Heartburn from anxiety.

I’m sorry! The same thing happened to me earlier this year. While job searching is tough, it’s definitely better than continuing to work in an environment like that—life is too short. Take some time for yourself and I’m sure you’ll find something much better in the future. Best of luck!

Same. Not looking back. Excited for my future. We’ll land somewhere great. Good luck,

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.

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.
