What is the impact of LTI-Mindtree merger for the existing employees and new joiners? Should layoffs be expected during the integration of the organisations? Larsen & Toubro Infotech Mindtree
Has anyone been fired during COVID? If so, what for? I feel like firing someone during a pandemic isn’t the right thing to do.
Why do we layoff people? It doesn’t make sense to me that so many high performers were left go
Does everyone constantly feel on edge, as if they'll make one mistake and get fired? I know it's unreasonable, but definitely adds to anxiety all day long. Anyone else in the same boat?
Heard Havas is doing layoffs 🙊
Please help clarify the confusion. Biglaw pays majors bucks with 1950 hours. Associates bill exactly 1950 (sometimes lower) and don’t get fired at BigLaw (although they won’t make partner, w.e.). Meanwhile, Regional and mid size firms pay significant less and expect 1850 billable hours, like why? 🤯 what’s their value proposition? It’s still a lot of billables and still sucks. What am I missing?
Info needed about Amazon ASAP. I applied for an Amazon Technical Program Manager role but the Amazon recruiter reached out to me for a Risk Manager role. What’s the pay like for Managers at Amazon. I’m currently a Deloitte Manager - Base is $144k. Should I even bother? I wouldn’t want to leave D for a lateral move. But...At this point I’m trying to hedge my bets against the impending D layoffs while not shortchanging myself. Thanks in advance!
I watched a 29 yr old fire a 64 year old sales professional last week, this professional was making the number had been an overachiever for the past 6 yrs…and was fired with no severance nothing.
I want to get of the road. Burnt out. Have made too many family +health sacrifices. New RP/coach (old ones moved on). Best way to approach wo getting fired? T3, 8 year vet, Manager
In other news: Deloitte is full of trolls that are trying to convince you you're about to be laid off.
This is just a post to spread some positivity. You can do anything you set your mind to. I failed my first attempt at the bar, was a stealth layoff in my first yr at a V100 firm. I lateraled to a V50. There, my 4th year I billed 2.4K hours and somehow still got mixed reviews and docked on my bonus . I questioned my skills and abilities. My self confidence hit rock bottom. Lateraled to a V5 firm. Just got annual review. Proud to say that all 5 partners said I’m stellar and have partner potential.
I talked to my friend today. She has been a SAHM for 14 years. She is freaking out because her husband got laid off. They have a 2.4 million dollar mortgage and 4 kids. I told if she’s so worried
I think I’m self sabotaging? Example: I’m terrified I’m getting laid off and my performance has started slipping although it’s otherwise been fine. I know deep down I have this feeling that things in my life won’t have a happy ending so it’s better to get the bad things over with. How do I stop??
Hi ladies. I was laid off about two months ago and can barely find a lead to a job. Anyone else having issues/going through something similar? Anyone have any leads? Advice? I need help 🥺
Any other work fanatics? Being a work fanatic myself, I observed two outcomes: 1) coworkers feel threatened; 2) managers reap the benefits of having a fanatic worker but refuse to reward the loser.
Bill Gates has warned about a pandemic for years - are we all gonna die single 😬 https://www.vicnews.com/news/b-c-reports-first-coronavirus-in-vancouver-region/#
She doesn’t need to explain herself to any of us.
Being the only girl on the team and being told "you can't come to the client dinner because we are establishing strategic relationships". The guys are all going, of course. 😡😤 So. Unvalued.
Grading😱I admit🤦🏽♀️I grade about everything. This year, I’m changing my ways. Is it be better to grade 3/5 HWs, 4/5? Leaving the other 2/1 WS as participation? Must be random as most are Fr/So
Anyone else feel like 250k is the new 100k?
How do you folks manage your taxes and ITR? I always feel like I am losing out on a lot of tax saving opportunities. Any service or professional recommendations? Has anyone tried cleartax?
How would you react if your friend was "the other woman" and feels no guilt about it? One of my best friends is basically in love with a married man (with a kid) and they've been flirting hard at work. They even planned to go to the movies for a 9pm showing. Even though they haven't slept with each other, a lot of the things they're doing is highly inappropriate. I told her to get it sorted but until then, I can't talk to her anymore. I used to be in the kid's shoe and know how much it hurts.
Has anyone successfully taken a job in another country? I am currently in the US and have been browsing jobs in the Middle East in Doha, Qatar and Dubai, UAE. I’ve also been browsing jobs in Singapore. Any advice? How did you make your resume attractive? Did you apply to American companies doing business over there? What did the comp package look like for relo, housing, medical? Were you single or married with kids? Thanks!
Senior Associates at PwC. Thread for CRT next week. Feel free to share feedback, salary numbers, and vent. Include practice and city if comfortable.
I know people have their preferences and entitled to their opinions but it always hurts when someone doesn't want to date me because I'm divorced. I feel like I have so many other admirable qualities.
Whew I’m stressed 😩
Thoughts on Donut platform? Good, no good?
When you get drunk at dinner and your manager paints your nails...FYI I'm a guy. #teambonding
If you transfer from one firm to another, do everyone a favor and learn your new firm's culture/ways of doing things as quickly as possible. Listen to people, even those below you, on these things. 😡
