So my partner will be getting laid off 4/15. 🥺
Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
I started a job hunt reluctantly b/c my company might be in buyout negotiations. I don't want to wait around for the layoffs.
I've received a new offer, but it's completely lateral. Damn near the same title, same benefits, same salary. I've made several attempts to negotiate salary or other benefits, but (supposedly) the hiring manager's hands are tied due to FY21 budget commitments.
Everything else about the job sounds great. Good culture, good boss, upward mobility, etc. Do I go for it?
When bank will declare Q2 result? 1st week of July?

I concepted and sold a campaign. I was then laid off with promises of getting credit for the work. I didn’t. Any advice?
Is it ok to continue going for interviews even after accepting a job offer?
I accepted an offer for a role I wasn't really into but it was the best option I had after going through several interviews since I was laid off due to the pandemic.
Then, other more enticing job openings came along.
Would it look bad if I were to go for an interview & be like "I've been working at my current job for XX weeks but I'm interviewing for this role because it's much closer to what I really wanna do"?

Hi Guys, What’s your take on salary negotiation during this environment? I was laid off due to COVID in April. I just received a job offer with a much lower salary than I expected and my research indicates am being lowballed to the tune of at least $30k! I think the firm can do better because the practice area is thriving despite COVID! They’re in fact looking to hire more associates! Should I negotiate? I have been offered $115K in NYC\NJ! Am going into my third year of practice!
Who else knows they’ll never get fired.

Does anyone know how layoffs happen behind closed curtains? Who gets axed and why? Is it true that age doesn’t play a role? What shitty stories to tell employees for cause of layoffs? I’ve gotten axed
Worked super hard in the US for 11 years, finally was about to get green card, I got laid off. What has my life become? I can’t feel more like a failure. If I can’t find a job that sponsors work visa for me in 3 months, the past decade would be the proof of my yet another horrible investment. Damn, universe, what are you trying to teach me?! Stop chasing unrealistic goal that’s outside of our control?
If you leave MBB voluntarily (not counseled out or laid off), is it possible/easily feasible to return later on in your career?

Hi all! I need your advice. I have been this position about a year and just found out HR does not have a job description on file for me. My direct supervisor just created one but most of my current duties are not even listed, and my duties were from our entry level position. I refused to sign(they asked me to sign for it) but what should I do from here? I’ll have a meeting with HR next week and do not know where to start at this point and I am irritated, frustrated, and disappointed. Thanks,

I’m ready to quit my job and do this. Taking all and any resources, advice, next steps you all may have. Thank you in advance.
