Friends, I was laid off due to Covid. Eligible for rehire and am a new analyst, would love to chat with any ACN 🐠 for some insight on where to apply! My background is in competitor research, PMO, deck building. I’m very personable and hard working!
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired.

After watching succession it lowkey felt like it was written about the Ford family. Around the time I was watching the show I met bill ford at some event I help organize at the train station being rebuilt. Thought I was on the come up. Couple months later I was laid-off/fired ahah. Wasn’t even a mid manager was just an entry level employee lololol.
Do you think employees can be fired or laid off if our offices open but we’re not comfortable going back?
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
If you get fired due to performance issues can you still file for unemployment? If so, will you get enough money for rent and food?
Got laid-off in November and started at a boutique firm two month ago and I'm just so bored. Work is boring and there isn't much structure for anything. Missing D today.
Post your unpopular opinion. I’ll start: Layoffs are good for firms. It keeps the top-performers, aligns reality with company’s expectations, and as a result, brings better work.
Recreational drug enthusiasts, how has lockdown affected that part of your lifestyle? Doing more, less, the same as before? Dealers still active or is stuff harder to get? Layoffs=Walter White 2.0s?
I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company. It seemed great during the interview but once I got here it was very unorganized, not clear which team I would support, etc. Long story short, I was told we would have a hybrid work schedule and we are now required to go in-office full time 5 days a week and there have been a ton of layoffs recently. Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?
Anyone here in consulting? I just got a job offer after some interviews that's a 47% raise from my current comp, but as a new father in his late 30s just wondering if the time away might be terrible. It's slalom consulting (emerge) which emphasizes work life balance and all that but just wanted to get y'all's thoughts.

Just received an offer from another big 4 firm that was substantially less than I currently make (more than 10%). Do you guys think it is worth negotiating or should I just pass on it?
Where is Mr. Trump during all this? Even Trump supporters must agree this guy is completely MIA and not showing any leadership or trying to bring a sense of calm or unity to the nation.
Going home this weekend - what is the most time efficient (minimal disruption to work) way to get rapid COVID test?
Had a final interview earlier this week where at the end my interviewer said “hope I’ll be seeing you after Christmas!” (the position would start in January). But it’s been a couple days and I haven’t heard anything and I’m starting to freak out 😭
Prediction: Maybe companies realize WFH actually works. And several of them stop paying absurd rent for large commercial real estate space. Half the company becomes WFH. People move out of NYC (cntd)

5 more hours until I get to unleash the nastiest 💩💩 of my life back in the hotel room. Can't think or focus on anything else.
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
