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.
What’s to stop people from just not showing up to work and ghosting everyone instead of quitting? Wouldn’t you just get fired and at least receive a termination package?
Success stories of being unemployed/lost for a year (due to multitude of reasons, not fired) but landing a good job afterwards?
Y’all ever have days where you would not even care if you were fired? In fact, you might welcome it? 😅 At least tomorrow is Friday - we got this!
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?
Have an almost 3 year old and an 18 month old. I’ll be 39 this year, struggling with the idea of whether to have a third. I’m the main breadwinner in my family with husband laid off. Anyone else gone through this experience? What did you decide and what made sense for your family?
I have two states of mind: either I’m the best creative ever or im a big fraud and I’m getting fired. I switch between both daily.
Anyone else automatically assume you’re getting fired after you get locked out of your email account? I swear this only happens to me on Friday mornings when I’ve recently changed my login credentials 🤯😤
When I see how people love spreading rumors, accept alternative facts without research, like layoffs or ratings, I know why all big4 r in such a shit place
I just got pulled off a brief and replaced by another writer....am I about to fall victim to Corona layoffs?
Any layoffs due to this virus?
This is just weird. (Layoffs a week or so ago)
Just got laid off due to COVID as an 1 YOE analyst with a generalist sales pipeline support/BA support background. Ready to hit the ground running. What certs should I go after to beef up resume? I’ve heard AWS, Salesforce or Scrum can be helpful. Thanks in advance - trying to make ends meet here so I’m highly motivated and any advice is really helpful. I also have some money saved up for training, but want to spend wisely.
Layoffs at PwC LA?
So what’s going on with DDB NY? I read about layoffs, but what clients do they have and what is it like working there?
Anyone else feel like as you move up, you have to work even harder to justify your value to your company as you grow “out of the weeds”? Especially with the fear of layoffs looming over everyone’s heads.
All time best tactical plan briefing & creative kickoff? What blew minds? What fired the right brain neurons? Out-of-the box meeting structure? Acct briefing:brainstorm ratio? Who drank the KoolAid?
Good Seattle neighborhoods? School is in South Lake Union but a great view of the sound (Belltown? Lower Queen Anne?) would be ideal. Is this a bad idea? Would have a car
Am I the only one who would raise their eyebrows when people reaching out with “Hey - blahblahblah”? Is that difficult to spell out people’s first name? Do you also reach out to higher ranks with a “Hey”?
Too many layoffs. The industry is just hurting too much. Time for client side. But tough to do as a Planner. Thanks for listening

What's the point of getting a B4 to do your internal audit? My understanding is it's to save time and therefore money for the external audit, but I imagine it's not cheap to have a B4 do it.
First time on the bench as a relatively new hire, any advice for making the most of this downtime?
Any thoughts on going into client advisory services? I’ve been thinking about leaving my tax manager role to go to industry but I like the client aspect of my job. Thinking of maybe trying out CAS and then using that to get to industry if I want out in a few years.
Firm holiday party is cocktail attire but I have a dress I’ve been dying to wear since before COVID. It’s this one but in black. Thoughts?
Sometimes being rolled off is like being led to the slaughter - you shouldn’t let the poor creature know what’s coming... 🙈🔫

Are there top consulting firms that take on experienced consultants w/o an MBA? I refuse to get an MBA and not sure if that precludes me from joining a top consulting firm. Thoughts?
Have an offer that pays ~$350-450k a year, but is very bonus heavy and about 25% of that or more will be restricted stock and options. Making ~$350k now all cash. And the way it’s structured, in the first year I’ll end up being ~$50k short for the year of where I would be if I stayed. Also requires a big move to a location I’m not too keen on. WLB is better, probably 50 hours a week but need to be plugged in 100% of the time. Any considerations I haven’t really thought about? What should I ask?
