Are the rumors of the heavy ACN strategy layoffs true? I've heard that new hires can get laid off before they even start...
I’m about to be a second year and have a core utilization of 75% (adjusted 85%). Is this really low? Is it something I could potentially get fired for? No bad reviews, and the low utilization was due
So I have decided to stop playing silly games and start acting like a real person instead of a consultant (Probably will leave soon, so don't care if I get fired). Turns out my client loves it, lol.

Package is 26 weeks of severance pay, two months "gardening leave", plus payout of long-term incentive. Would have preferred a more cooperative approach to voluntary retirement. Thoughts?

Any tips on how to ask for a big raise that takes my title change into account? Went from assistant to director in 1 year and was not compensated for the title change. I did get an assistant however and the promotion approved (I had to ask for it). I’ve now been in the director role for 1 year and feel it is fair to ask. I’m making only 5% more than when I started as a marketing assistant.

My Senior Manager & Partner are basically “forcing” us to take vacation during the week of 20th Dec and 3rd Jan. They’re saying if we don’t have billable work (even though we’re available to work), we should use vacation days instead of charging time to a GA or PRD code. Is this even legal? I was supposed to go home but can’t because of travel bans. I want to save my vacation days so I can go home in April, not take vacation to sit at home. How do I navigate this?
I leave for vacation in a few days and instead of being excited, I’ve been crying all night. I think my mind is finally processing that Im actually stepping away from work for once.
I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.
