It’s awards season for Scroogiest Company of the year! Time for Q4 cuts and gotcha just kidding about them bonuses haha memorable moments. I’ll go first- Argonaut just laid off a lot of people right before the Dec. 9th bonus dispersal date that was promised for folks who had been employed since March 2020. Those crazy kids! Always up to something silly! Gonna go ahead and say though that Better is still narrowly in first place after the Zoom firing holiday Xmas special. Who else?
I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.
HSA - I have an HSA from former employer, laid off last year. I habitually maxed out my HSA ($3,600 this year) in March and realized I am not eligible (new/current employer doesn't offer HDHP). What do I need to do?
What's the next best tweenie clothing retailer to short stock? Wet Seal, Forever 21, etc. gets me fired up to bet on bankruptcies
Does anyone else have constant imposters syndrome? 5 years with the firm, been consistently rated 1 except in first years at new levels. Got an office transfer I requested and a team transfer I was “head hunted” for. Everyone says I’m doing great but I still wake up every morning fearing today’s the day the you’re fired hammer is going to slam down and catch up with me.
Maybe I’m off base here but seems like EY kept a bunch of low performers through year end to justify keeping everyone’s pay stagnant for FY21 that will be around after these supposed layoffs, cause now they are canning a bunch of people and it’s not like things are any better now than they were in June...anyone disagree?
So many new hires coming in. I just don't get it, with all the layoffs that happened a few months back and a bench so deep..
Anyone from Deloitte get laid off this week?
How many of you are still unemployed from last year lay offs? Interested to learn more about folks who were laid off and what they are doing.
I am so glad that PwC has not fired the accountants for the Oscar fiasco. Good to see firms making an attempt to protect their employees despite so much media scrutiny and witch-hunting
Recently laid off, and overwhelmed by all the things I have to do. How do you prioritise and how do you cope? I feel like I could be working on job-hunting all day and night but is that healthy?
If anybody is impacted by the KPMG layoffs today let me know if you want to discuss new opportunities
Just got the axe, it’s weirdly nice to be laid off via Zoom and not walk the plank to HR and have everyone see me publicly crying. Time to crack a beer for sure.
When is the next round of Deloitte layoffs?
New & young consultant here. Feeling so inadequate on my project, have received positive feedback so far ... imposter syndrome and fear of being fired. Any advice?
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.
Laid off a few weeks ago from AFS. Is anyone willing to refer me to a position at Deloitte GPS, Guidehouse, or Booz? Experience at AFS mainly consisted of Fed contract pricing, change management work, and digital transformation strategy.
For those of you who have been laid off - has your view of the multi month lockdown changed?
Should you use all your sick days?
Candidates with PWD category, if looking for a change.. Accenture has a seperate referral drive as part of diversity campaign. Dm me for referrals and spread across this message. Happy to help.
Low and even negative yields have turned some fixed income investing into “fixed expense” investing
Im on an H1B at Deloitte. I want to move to the Dubai and have been getting some traction with two different consulting firms. I’ve used less than one year of my first H1B. If at some point in the future I want to move back to the US will that count as a new petition or the sponsoring company with which I’ll get a job can file a transfer petition and get me started?
Currently in industry, on the product side with previous consulting background. I don’t like the grind of consulting, but Salesforce CSG (prof services) reached out with a BA role. I’m also in the process of interviewing at FICO as well. I like that the FICO is on the internal product side, but Salesforce has a great reputation. Feeling like I don’t know what I want. For reference, I’m leaving my current place because of terrible leadership & back to office 5x a week/no flexibility. Any advice?
I need a side job that I can work evenings and/or weekends that can generate at least $1000 extra dollars a month. I was thinking real estate but I know nothing about it… then I thought bartending but again, I know nothing about it… I don’t want to spend more than 20 hours per week working this side job and if it is remote AND contract, that would be great. Any advice?
How much are the hourly rates for the seasonal contractors at the B4 firms? Especially in tax. Thanks
How tough is it to break into a FAANG PM role at mid-level if you have less prestigious experience? I have 10+ YOE in product, but some was at a tiny meh startup that fizzled out, some was in the digital wing of a large old healthcare org, and though my current role is GPM at a “name brand” tech company, it’s on the smaller side. Went to a good-but-not-Ivy school. What qualifications and experience are FAANG companies looking for when hiring mid-level PMs? Can I break in at mid-level from here?
I’m expecting a job offer tomorrow and they let me know today that they have no 401k matching program (?????). Is it greedy for me to bump up my salary expectation $2-3k to make up for it?
Hey googlers, quick question on offer expectations, I just completed the process for a GCP TAM role and out of the 4 interviews 3 went excellent but the one case study was okay, I wasn’t able to answer a couple of questions out of 6 properly. So 3 questions for you all: 1. Do we need to get a Hire/Leaning Hire for all interviews to make it to HC? 2. Does the Hiring Manager have a higher weightage on offer approval? 3. Can having one bad interview affect leveling directly? Google
I’m applying for an industry job and the company has no parental leave benefits whatsoever. Even FMLA is just unpaid 12 weeks and require 1 yr of service. HR rep literally said “my kid is 18, I don’t
Currently in IR and want to move to a better work life balance role....maybe engineering. Do engineers get paid more than responders/analyst? Looking to get the AWS SAA and maybe try to squeeze my way into a cloud sec role since i have about a year of AWS exp.
