I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
If you are not married or without your own family, would you move back with your parents if you have been laid off? Or would you dip into savings / unemployment to keep the lights on?
CRT is over and I was wondering if PwC will layoff people this year in Cyber as certain markets are not performing well.
Fellow 🐠, I became an "EY Alumni" two weeks ago and I'm happy to say that I accepted an offer this morning. If you were hit by the different layoffs, don't lose hope and keep hustling. If there's anything I can do to help, feel free to DM me.
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
If my Firm offered voluntary severance of, at least, 3 months, I would take it today. No hesitation. Who else?
My mom just got laid off today...just got promoted on Friday too...why does this happen😣 all I want to do is fly home and hug my mom
How do you explain in subsequent interviews you were fired? Is it impossible to get a job after you were let go?
Would you ever hire someone after they were fired for an ethical lapse (not illegal - violation of the COC)?
What is this about OT labor laws that took effect on 12/1/16 resulting in Big 4 layoffs nationwide? Does anyone know a little more about this?
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 🥺
All jokes aside, as consultants should we be worried about layoffs now that trump is going to be elected?
Would you rather receive low hike+ bonus or risk a whole bunch of people (including you) get laid off?
Whose having layoffs? I can feel it in my bones.
I'm home grown and know I'm below market...always eases my mind when potential for layoffs arise. I don't try to get paid less for this reason, but it is nice.
I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
How bad are D layoffs in Canada? US firm seems nuts but not so much here from where I'm standing..
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
The hustle culture is killing me. Working until midnight everyday with no salary raise this year. Is it time to move? Just heard Deloitte people are getting raise this year.
I’m a new hire as a technical architect but I have been staffed on a larger project and delegated a ton of project management work. I have no prior experience in PM and I feel very lost, has anyone been in a similar situation and how did you get better at PM?
Couldn't get a picture but just watched a King Charles Cavalier pee all over the carpeted floor at BOS.... nothing is being done to clean it up
What do DEI people actually do? Besides give the (mostly false) appearance of diversity within the agency?
What's up guys. Have a behavioral interview with wells fargo advisors on Monday. Anyone know what to expect and have been through it? Any feedback that can help me. Thanks again.
Anyone else still extremely fatigued weeks after COVID symptoms? I’m still sleeping 10+ hours a day with low energy throughout. Need naps and feel faint a lot.
Perspectives from those working at Avanade? How’s the culture, how’s the work? Best aspect of working there/worst aspect of working there? TIA!
I was told today by one of the hiring company hr that the market is dipping now.. there will no longer be job opportunities at good Salary ranges for much longer.. is it true ?!
Merrill Advisors - I have a client with an account at Merrill and am told that they have a money fund available which insures up to an aggregate of $5,000,000 in FDIC coverage. Is this a CDARs program and they are misinformed or does such a program exist and what is it called? I was told $5mm in coverage with daily liquidity which obviously wouldn’t apply to CDARs. Many thanks!
For those who started right from undergrad at a Big 4, what was your base salary? Trying to benchmark if the offer I got was competitive, it was for $85k
Hi Fish! Anyone knows Big Four Advisory of Asset & Wealth Practice, like daily work, the connections with other teams, what from you are expected, what type of person is a good sell, etc. Could be great if you’d love to share your insights.

Wondering how much a Partner makes in Big 4 consulting? Is there really that big of a difference at the Partner level compared to MBB (starting 7 figure)?
Does Deloitte offer the option to reimburse your personal cell phone plan if you don’t want a work phone?
