Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?
Friend was terminated from regional CPA firm after 6 years. No severance whatsoever, only paid out for accrued PTO. Does he have a case for legal action?
Accenture Strategy layoffs? .....👀
Have those laid off this past year from the Big 4 had any luck landing new jobs? I had a great career but now can’t get the time of day. I am tired of faking enthusiasm that I lost months ago.
Wieden ny layoffs: what happened?
Has anyone in creative bought a house or apartment? I’m in NYC and trying to pull trigger but fear of job instability and layoffs is crippling me w indecision. Apts ain’t cheap
Has there been in layoffs in Public sector? From what I can tell it has been all in commercial advisory...
Thoughts on joining a boutique consulting firm during this economy? Is it typically viewed as safer or riskier than bigger firms? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I know many of the bigger firms had layoffs but I imagine they have much more in the pipeline/budget/resources whereas boutique firms may or may not have had layoffs (is there a reputable source about this online?) but have fewer of the other items.
Any Layoffs at Deloitte in SAP today? Also, what is the current bench % in SAP/ Enterprise Performance.
Anyone else beat themselves up over small mistakes at work. I’ll become obsessive about how stupid I am and how I think I’m going to get fired or never get promoted
Welp. I might not have a job by Monday. Any first year associates miss a deadline and not get fired?
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
How many are concerned that there may be layoffs after this is all over ? I’m a little scared of that... if I’m being honest.
Got an offer fr vmware worried about job security should I join or not as I have heard frequent layoffs happen there specially in india VMwware ,kindly suggest what to do !
Does anyone else have constant imposters syndrome? 5 years with the firm, been consistently rated 1 except in first years at new levels. Got an office transfer I requested and a team transfer I was “head hunted” for. Everyone says I’m doing great but I still wake up every morning fearing today’s the day the you’re fired hammer is going to slam down and catch up with me.
Serious question: how difficult is it to get straight up fired from big 4? Outside the layoffs last year, I have personally never seen anyone let go for any reason. There's always some PIP or transferring projects or some long review process that never goes anywhere. Anyone have any insight or stories? Just looking for some perspective.
I have about 40K in savings, 35K in stocks, 110K in 401K. No debt and loans. I am thinking about buying a house/Condo in a year or two. I contribute 12% to my 401K. Any investment suggestions until I buy a house/condo? Right now I am comfortable paying up to $1800/month for mortgage loan. Single here.
I’m in MTS and recently got an offer from PWC federal side, compensation wise it’s really close but in my group I have multiple clients under three different Senior Manager which is what kills me. I’ve always want to get federal experience and I don’t think it’ll be easy if I want to transfer to a federal group. So should I quit or use the offer to negotiate transfer group? I know I have someone if I want to negotiate to go to national MTS but federal I don’t have close connection…
Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.

Struggling really bad with depression right now but I’m very busy at work. How to deal with working 15 hour days when you’re already experiencing mental health issues?
Anyone switch firms among the big 4 and felt you were performing exceedingly well, even though you didn’t really doing anything different in your previous big 4 firm to begin with? Want to understand if its the firm rather than the individual sometimes.
How do you politely turn down a job offer or back out of interview at last step without burning bridges? After meeting the hiring manager and stakeholders I don’t think we’re a good fit. This job also requires relocation. I don’t want to take a job and uproot my life for something that isn’t the right fit. I’m currently unemployed so feeling a bit desperate but also don’t want to move for something that isn’t right. Thanks!
Reached out to the head of Firm A (who I had a last-round interview with a few weeks ago) to say that I received an offer from Firm B but still want to work for them. The head said that I'm one of the top candidates and that they want to schedule more time to talk in detail tomorrow. What could this mean?
