If you’re at risk of getting laid off, who usually sets up the call? How does the process go?
Being on the bench is literally the best.
Anyone know anything about these layoffs AdWeek just reported at Anomaly NY? Their New York CCO recently left. Sounds like a house cleaning.
I wasn't hoping welfare handouts from these 4 red states. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/12/04/4-states-pay-unemployment-benefits-to-fired-unvaccinated-workers.html

Just got laid-off at Arnold with 30 other people... but then again, what did we really have to work on!?
Recently laid off, and overwhelmed by all the things I have to do. How do you prioritise and how do you cope? I feel like I could be working on job-hunting all day and night but is that healthy?

What constitutes a “notice period” when terminated? Wondering if eligible for severance. Not fired for any of the “causes”. Working in at-will state.
Help! I have a manager that keeps giving me a crap ton of stuff to do knowing there’s no way possible for me to get it done before I roll off. Every time I look around he’s adding EGAs to my queue!!
So, just what did Nick Emery do to get fired? ‘Prank gone wrong on zoom’ is all I’m hearing
Here we go... wonder if the US firm would’ve had it easier had they rolled out voluntary flex arrangements at the same time as the Canadian firm. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-29/deloitte-consulting-ceo-warns-of-about-2-500-job-cuts
Is it possible to roll off an proj before it ends? Feel like I’m completely burnout and couldn’t stand it anymore.
Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?
In first year at Big 4 advisory firm and assignments are scarce; killing my utilization. Should I look for another job or are newbies given slack? Anyone laid off in first year or been through it?

How is Deloitte’s info tech services comp plan compared to consulting ? I have a recruiter chasing me a senior manager role as product manager .
Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?

Considering an offer from Facebook for L5 Manager (Non-tech in recruiting) in Austin (remote). TC started at 178. Now 200 TC which I’m told is top of the pay band. Kinda confused because TC feels low for L5 people manager and pay sounds like L5 IC Austin pay. Any thoughts on if this is competitive or if you get a pay cut for working remote? Data to consider: interviews went really well, currently at Google (considering the move for growth to manage 12-20). No info on lvls.fyi for this role
I have a pending I-485 and my case was recently “ready to be scheduled for an interview” about 2 weeks ago. I haven’t traveled to my home country for 3 years and was looking forward to going this December … I have a valid H1b that expires in 2023 and would need to get it stamped. There are appts available in my home country. However I don’t have AP (did not apply due to valid H1b). Is there any risk to my GC application if I travel abroad and get a H1b stamp to re-enter the US?
