EY did it silently - many of peers were let go. Don’t trust any firm.

Can attest to this. Everyone from staff to partners were laid off.

PwC held the line and basically no layoffs. Cut costs and Partners ate the comp hit.

Any insight from Deloitte folks on the announced layoffs? Has anyone from PwC or KPMG heard anything similar? EY has left the door open for layoffs, but hasn’t laid out specific plans yet. It feels inevitable though. While I don’t think I’m on the chopping block (famous last words), I do worry about the morale impact on my teams and the office in general. Curious to hear other perspectives.

Heard there were layoffs at Ogilvy. Who’s left over there?

I have received an offer from Deloitte for ‘Project Delivery Senior Anlyst’ position on some technology preferred provider program. It is hire in advance , that means I should get project ‘after joining’. I have heard PDM is like contract worker, you can get laid off once project ends(just 2 weeks bench). How true is that/how risky it is to join PDM?(considering I am in US on H1B) 2 . How much time it takes to get first project? I am confused because it’s really better salary than what I make.

Was laid off almost a month ago. Keep getting to first round calls for new jobs and it always feels like it goes so well but then I get ghosted. Feeling a little bummed. Any advice?

People are not willing to settle for jobs that don’t pay. If we can find a better opportunity elsewhere, then we take it. The only way to fix the retention problem is for PA firms to make massive pay increases, which will allow for more applicants and more hires, which will reduce the average workload per person. It’s an obvious fix, leadership just needs to not be stingy.
