Hi fishes One of my friend looking for a job, He lost his job in this pendamic by layoff, if possible pls refer Position: General accounting ops analyst (bpo) Exp: 6 yrs
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Mic laid off its entire staff, sold the name to Bustle, and is relaunching with an entirely new staff. Read the union's statement on the fiasco.
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
i just fired someone today
I can’t think properly for a brief that wants to join in on the conversation of what’s happening. I feel it’s inappropriate to do so, but my boss expects “creative” ideas from me. If I don’t deliver, I have a feeling I could get fired. How do you deal with this?
That’s going to leave a mark - 25k job cuts globally @ ACN https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8660159/Hundreds-Australian-jobs-risk-Accenture-slashes-workforce.html
Gonna join PwC M&A tax. What would be the market like if there’s another financial crisis (hopefully not). Are we the people who will be laid off first? Or we will be pulled to do tax compliance? Thanks.
I feel im targeted due to my ethnicity .. When I raised my concern with HR I'm being threatened with PIP.. How do deal with it? I'm worried being fired.. Where as I been on my numbers for two years.....
How hard is it to get fired or put on PIP in Big 4 or public accounting in general? Aside from covid related departures.
when I got laid off couple of months back, one of the leadership I worked closely with for couple of years said that my skills are not right for the xyz firm and that I should take it - contd
Is it weird to reach out and check up on ex coworkers who were recently laid off? Had a director I worked with closely laid off and want to reach out to them. Also think I’ll be laid off soon FWIW
If you are laid off and cannot find a job doing your day job, what will you do? I am trying to prepare a plan b and c. My car is too old for Uber eats etc. curious your thoughts.
What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
I'm at a small firm with 2 associates and 1 managing partner. The partner fired our 1 paralegal and now puts a lot of paralegal work on me. I'm the first female attorney this firm has had in over 30 years. I'm not allowed to bill for the paralegal work and already have to meet 40 billables/wk. The other associate is a man but has the exact same credentials/experience as me, but gets more cases/high stakes cases and is never asked to do paralegal work. Am I delusional to think my boss is sexist?
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
Anyone know the severance at their agency? Curious what people experienced with lay offs - could be coming and want to be prepared
Hello fellow H1B folks! Question on i797 approval letter. Got my visa approved from company A. I need to delay my start date at company A. If company A does not withdraw its application, how long do I have on the newly approved petition to do the switch? Long story short when does the new petition cease being valid? I still have an existing valid visa / i797 for my current company.
Comp communications are coming up. If I am unhappy with my raise or VC can I push back? Have you done that successfully without feeling like it gave you a bad reputation? My raises and bonuses have been good in the past and maybe I was naive but I’ve never thought to ask for more.
Tax deduction help. Now that we are ending the year I want to find out if there are any other tax deductions I am missing. I maxed out the 401k and hsa (also Roth but that’s post). Is there anything else I can do? Single 27 and no home.
OK guys, need to head to ATL this weekend. Was hoping to stay at the St Regis and it's TOTALLY BOOKED OUT! what's a close second for area and hotel? Thanks in advance!

Do you always clean shave for an interview? Have one with EY later today for SC2 and I think the stubble (clean neck) helps me hide my baby face a bit so I’m leaning towards not clean shaving.
How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?
