Has anyone been seeing layoffs in their firms? I’m starting to catch wind of industry layoffs. Is recession hitting now?
I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)
More lay-off info in the news. Anyone impacted? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-08-21/wells-fargo-resumes-job-cuts-in-break-with-top-u-s-competitors
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.
Earlier, someone posted about being desperate to find something new... I think we should have two posts - one for people employed but miserable, and one for people laid off and searching. Myself?
If we had an advertising union no one would be worried if their projects paused right now because they would have health care and a weekly stipend if laid off. Unionize now!￼
Recently laid off from Sr. Consultant role in energy in Houston. 4 years exp in supply chain/procurement and 2 in consulting (mainly tech PM work aka scrum). Have my MBA and PSM 1 cert. I know opportunities are far and few between right now, but looking for either energy or supply chain consulting role. Open to travel once resumed. If anyone is aware of a need, I'd appreciate the help!
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
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.....
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 ❤️ 😔
Asking to the Indian folks, for the ones laid off or having issues and having to go back home, how is the job market currently in India? Any of you tried looking around?
For those who do not wish to submit to compulsory vaccination and weekly testing, when do you plan on having that tough conversation with your partner? As RSM just announced it will comply with the Presidents order, do we wait or do we have the conversation now?
On an E2 with current company and have an offer from another firm and now thinking they logistics. Should I hold off quitting until the new E2 is successful just in case it’s denied? Will applying for a second visa flag a problem?

Hello, are there any openings for Salesforce Manual Testing/BA roles in CBO internally? Also, will the folks from non testing/non technical background be considered?
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Does anyone share a classroom with someone who totally disrespects all of your stuff and space? (AND allows their students to do the same when you aren't in the room?!) I am trying my best but we are only a few weeks in and I don't know how I'm going to handle the rest of the year like this. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who has also gone through this.
What are the exit oppts for someone in REPE doing front office and middle office tasks? Any insight appreciated
Gar nichts los in DE? 🧐 Wollte mich mal mit anderen Consultants über Gehälter unterhalten. In welchem Feld und welcher Karrierestufe seid Ihr unterwegs, und wie hoch ist euer (Ziel-)Gehalt? Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?

I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
