How long does it take for me to get fired if I keep being unassigned?
My team got dissolved due to internal restructuring/regrouping and I am teamless now. My former partner is moving to another team and he said he won't take me with him. All other memebers of the former team except for one junior left the firm already. Not sure if my profile fit for any other team. I got unassigned today. How long do you think I have until I get fired?!

No worries. Just network and find a project in a different team. Do you know any partners outside your team? Do you have an area of interest? Look up those Partners in the directory, and send them your bio. Explain the situation. I am interested in x, and my team was just dissolved, so I am looking to align with a new partner.

Thanks for your advice. Will use my unassigned time for this

Your former partner not taking you with him, or reassigning you, is a red flag. Is he helpful? Can he recommend you to other Partners? If there was a performance issue, start looking.

I have shown poor performance when I started working. It got significantly better but it's hard to change the first impression. Also, the team that the partner is moving is quite different from the former team. I do not think he will give me stellar reference. Thanks for your comment. Will def look for opportunities outside the firm as well

I had a coachee - exp hire consultant- not show up for project and firm initiative and had an unpaid 10k balance on his Amex before he finally was let go a year later.

upside scenario it is

You can also ask HR what teams are looking fir resources, but it’s better to use your own network to align yourself to an area of your interest. HR will likely just align you randomly.

If you are friends with some colleagues whom you like, ask them. Again, it’s better to find a good team yourself than wait for HR to randomly assign you.

Need advice- was TTC for 10 months, first IUI cycle was cancelled due to COVID. Happened to get pregnant on own and miscarried. I’ve had 2 menstrual cycles since miscarriage and getting anxiety on if we should start back with IUI or not. On one hand-we got pregnant naturally. On the other - it took 10 months, have low sperm count, and sometimes my luteal phase is too short for implantation. I struggle with how many months to try naturally before going back to RE for IUI. Thoughts?

I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day..

They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣

Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...
