As someone who jumped to deloitte, I agree😳 my friends got laid off there and I was hired....

Wow that’s insane! Such a turn of events.

First fall season? In hot markets, up to 30% of the top professional services firms can turn over. You know what they say...”the best leave, the worst get fired, and the rest stay”

For the life of me don’t understand why any firm(and we are guilty of it too) is hiring people who were let go for performance at other firms. Let the industry skinny down a bit, maybe let Big 4 go back to accounting etc,

Serious question: how difficult is it to get straight up fired from big 4? Outside the layoffs last year, I have personally never seen anyone let go for any reason. There's always some PIP or transferring projects or some long review process that never goes anywhere. Anyone have any insight or stories? Just looking for some perspective.

They can tell I'm in and out of the doctor's office and I suspect they think I'm pregnant. Maybe it's being chock-full of hormone pills, but I'm sensitive about everyone thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
