With so many layoffs and the strange uncertainty of this industry right now—is anyone scared to death?
Does EY GDS layoff or fire any employee??
I read to the kids a book that ended with a line like, "If it was a good story, start all over."I told the kids I really only did that once in my life regarding a book about a teacher going to teach in Africa. In reality it was about a missionary. I hid the name of it and what it really was about. In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?
I got laid off with no warning. Reason given was my utilization was low at 81.8%. No performance problems. Would it be inappropriate for me to apply back to PwC to the teams I discussed rolling onto?

What happens if I get terminated from Infosys? I will never join IT anymore so will it be a problem if I get myself fired?
Layoffs at PwC LA?
Cooley should have just fired that SEC lawyer. The trajectory of their downfall pretty much follows Elon calling them out on Twitter. I guess Perkins is next. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1527774704018280448?lang=en
Deloitte partners circa whenever they realized they could let everyone leave on their own before the recession, instead of having to pay severance for 300k people.
Anyone around the Philly area want to be friends? Recently got laid off, and don’t have any friends around the area so yeah🙃
I saw that the Warner Bros. Discovery group has started with massive layoffs over at CNN. Is any job safe right now?
Hey Everyone! I’ve unfortunately just got laid off from my company. This is my second time in 5 months getting laid off due to budget cuts. Quite frankly, I’m drained and in need of leads. I’m a DEI TA sourcing specialist with experience sourcing Technical, Finance, HR, Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Operations and Shared Services. I’m seeking a full time FINTECH company, but I’m open to opportunities because beggars can’t be choosers. Feel free me if you know of anything! —-thank you!
Does anyone know of any Director/VP level strategy and ops roles (more or less industry agnostic)? Looking to secure next gig ASAP because of imminent layoff from current PE backed company. Please message / DM me. Thank you in advance for any leads! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Did you tell your friends and family you were laid off? So far, the only person who knows is my partner and I'm not sure if I should tell others.
What's the projection and outlook for state and local gov consulting? I'm at a small but somewhat well known firm in this space, but our leadership hasn't shared much on the outlook, given the economic slow down and layoffs
Hr don’t start a layoff meeting with “how are you” - it’s clear what we are here for. Give people some dignity
Just got benched, been completely billable till now, how long until I should be worried about potential layoffs? (Even though management is “committed” to not letting people go during covid)
Can foodpanda employees share about their Cloud Kitchens & Concepts team? What’s the team culture? Attrition rate? Layoffs?
I am a psychologist starting a new job tomorrow. Everyone that I have come into contact with at my new job have been dressed very professionally. My first day is an orientation day and the HR director told me that I may want to dress in comfortable clothing since I will be sitting most of the day. What would you wear?
Today we had to edit out all the footage of food being handled with bare hands in our spots. It’s a brand new world.
I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
I’m on a long term project in the middle of no-where with not great food options-is it fine to expense food at Target? Will a manager view it oddly when doing the B2A? Not trying to do anything shady
Hit it off with a guy two weekends ago and we’ve been talking every day since but he’s fresh out of a long term relationship (one month) and I don’t want to be a rebound. Any advice?
Ok but where does GTA real estate go from here?

Hi All! I have a System Dev Engineer interview- was wondering if anyone could share some advice on what to expect? - would be greatly appreciated :)
It's called having boundaries and expectations. I have friends. They just don't live anywhere near me.
When is JPMC planning to modernize its applications/projects. Have heard they are planning to move to AWS but how much time will it take? My team is still using some old tech although they plan to move to microservices

I’m starting at a new firm this week and am wondering what items you all consider to be essential to keep in your office (ex: spare shirts/shoes, toothbrush, etc)?

How long and what will it take for me to get promoted? I’m an experienced hire moving into consulting for the first time into a Snr Mgr level tech-focused strategy role. I’m taking a bit of a pay cut as I’m super keen on moving into consulting, but I’m very interested to know what people think it will take in terms of time, effort, performance to get promoted?
Do FAANG lowball offers nowadays? Got an Amazon offer with 130k TC. I am making 180k TC now. The recruiter told me I should consider FAANG brand and career potential. I think Amazon already doesn't have great WLB, and it doesn't sound like they truly value me.

I’m weighing an offer from Deloitte GPS in Human Capital (consultant level, 2.5 YOE). I’ve seen previous posts about all the people Deloitte laid off last year and I’m a bit nervous to accept because of it. Does anyone know if Deloitte is still doing layoffs? Was/Is it in commercial or GPS? And what were the reasons for the layoffs?
Hi, I am going through a few books on consulting and one thing which seems to be given a lot of importance is market sizing. What is the importance of this? It seems to me that unless it is a new product; existing competitors, long term contracts, monopolies etc would make this result unreliable at best and misleading. Can someone help me understand this?

🙄 tired of people acting like the Midwest is some provincial backwater
Chicago is in the midwest, and also a tech hub.
Not going to engage you on this. All depends on what market segments and industries, but its in bad taste to categorize companies/regions so broadly like that.
This question is a joke, right? Recession was a disaster in the midwest. We had to bail out GM and Chrysler. Unemployment was like 13-18%.
Everyone - I studied at a University in Midwest. I don't hate the Midwest. I was just curious. Anyway, there's no option to delete this post now, so please ignore it.
