Hi Karen, we learned that Laundry Service fired client Poppa John's bec. John Shattner used the N-word in a meeting w. the agency. This resulted in mass layoffs. How have you dealt w/ ethical dilemmas
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
Just been invited to a career in consulting night by Bain about 4 months after I took the tests for a referred application. Is this just fired out to everyone or is this indicative of something more?
What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

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.

Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
I’m currently a mid level art director and have an offer to be a Sr. AD at a good agency. I feel a little guilty and insecure that maybe if I accept this offer I will be biting off more than I can chew since I’ve only been a mid level for a year. Is that BS or am I right to feel that way? On one hand I’m like okay this is basically the same thing I’m doing now but probably more client facing (which I’m cool with) and on the other hand I feel like an imposter. What should I do?
