Who’s ready for layoffs at Arnold today? 💀
I got fired recently for vague performance issue reasons (which were never detailed to me) and it has completely gutted my confidence. Has this happened to anyone and have they come back from it?
Why does PwC need layoffs again if the business is doing well? Also, curious to know what are the other “business reasons” when your util and snapshots are great?
Saturday marked 14 years since I was fired and started my own agency. Getting fired did not break me then and this pandemic is not going to break me now. Stick with it, everyone.
With all this crap with the ratings and the layoffs, I'm gonna start talking to recruiters tomorrow and activate my network. This is more trouble than it's worth. I work my ass off I don't deserve thi
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Has anyone made a mistake that prevented a deal from closing before? Did the partners blacklisted you from future deals? Did you get fired? So anxious and don’t know what to do…
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year. But he just got recently laid off and doubts started to creep in again. He has always worked, but always in a dead end kind of job. And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is
To anyone laid off that has found a job, how long was your search? I have been recently laid off and feel very demotivated by the job market 😔
Finally got my YE! Was hoping to at least get a 3 after hearing about all the layoffs and the 4's going around. Got a 2 and I am EXTREMELY relieved! 🙌🏻🎉 Now I can really start my weekend! 😎🍾
Folks who've been laid off before: how do you keep the anxiety from creeping in anytime you make even a small mistake at the new job? 🙁
Any more word on the PwC Forensics layoffs? It appears to be going on in multiple markets.
My mom just got laid off today...just got promoted on Friday too...why does this happen😣 all I want to do is fly home and hug my mom
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
Is now a good time to start at Deloitte? Or are more layoffs expected in the near future? Have an offer for human capital comm. for consultant level and recruiter is recommending starting on Sept 1
Is it possible that massive layoffs, already expected, could just mean big numbers but not big pain like 2008 - 2009? Hear me out, the pain of 2008 was that there were large layoffs for months (cont)
Just finished a final round interview but don't feel good about the case even though the behavioral round was great. Feeling so demotivated after two months of recruiting for this role 😢
Know it's still early, but want to put up a thread for holiday party insights this evening. #colorfulformals

I’ve never been unintelligent, but does anyone else feel manipulated to think so by leadership? It almost feels like a sick game how leadership talks down to AEs...
Any pen testing or red teaming jobs (cleared or commercial)? I have some practice in HTB or THM but I don’t have OSCP or GPEN. I’d think I could find a role easily especially since Deloitte has been hiring pen testers that had no certs or experience. If they are hiring people with little experience I think would have a chance with another firm or company. I’d prefer a cleared role to keep my TS clearance but I’m open to anything that pays good and will help train me and grow my experience!

Going to be starting a new job soon (in consulting) after a break when I adopted a dog. She is still learning and I don’t trust her to stay quite through all my meetings. Do you think this is going to be an issue? How can I best manage the situation while we’re WFH?
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
