Literal babillion? Cause good luck with that. If you are asking how to prepare start looking at what your spend money on right now, cut cost, budget, stick to budget, get better paying job and investment your money.

Is anyone here constantly worried about getting laid off? I didn’t get moved to my next level (SA1 > SA2 > SA3 before manager) last review cycle (I was 6 months in the firm). Now I’m always constantly worried I’m going to get laid off. Overall get along w people at my level up to manager, but cannot get along with most partners and some directors. I’ve had good reviews from the former, and mixed reviews from the latter. Wondering if this is anxiety or intuition.

Please confirm if anyone heard this type of news.

My boss is very close with the leader of our group so it’s unlikely that she’ll get fired.  me and my other manager are going to go to HR today to discuss what was said. They were sexist and racist comments.
