Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
With the W&K layoffs ... 1. Recruiters are getting psyched. 2. Freelancers are even more unnerved. 3. Axe will fall on people phoning it in at other shops. What are your other predictions ? People leave ad game altogether?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
When your MD messages you at exactly 11:59pm and tells you to come into his office for a 'quick-small update'. Me thinking "layoff?" 🤔

I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
What happens when you get laid off? Do you get to stay until the end of the day? Do you say goodbye to people or try to leave without anyone noticing?
Thoughts on accepting multiple offers to mitigate H1B transfer denial? I feel terrible doing it for ethical reasons but I am considering it for practical purposes. Would appreciate honest opinions. TIA!
Anyone else rethinking their career options? Simu worked at Deloitte until he was laid off. 🤔
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.
Asking to the Indian folks, for the ones laid off or having issues and having to go back home, how is the job market currently in India? Any of you tried looking around?
Feeling really down and anxious about the fact that a few of my close team members were laid off. Tips for adjusting into my new work environment and continuing to job search without feeling so anxious all the time?
If you were laid off from your last job do you think it will affected your negotiation in your next job?
Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
What should be the salary range for an analytics professional with 6.5 years of experience?
Anyone left to back back to school for a more technical degree like MS in Statistics instead of an MBA or similar and did it go well?
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

Is there a (recent) ex-Accenture MD that took a principal role at Deloitte or PwC be willing to DM? I have started the interview process at these 2 firms and would like to understand compensation, culture, independence etc. thx
I'm thinking of applying for Consultant - Forecasting role at ZS Toronto. Could someone help me with the work culture and WLB at the Toronto ZS office? I have 5 years of relevant experience at IQVIA, Canada.
Is LinkedIn helpful? I only see it as a means to showcase one's experience/education background. Am I missing out on its benefits? Not a lot of big agencies post jobs there (atleast in my city) and the recruiters that do reach out have vague, often marketing-related, job offers.
Surface Pro vs MacBook Pro for work. What’s your experience been? I travel frequently, so the Surface Pro is quite tempting. But being able to iMessage from the MacBook is very appealing

Got a big raise in salary from getting promoted to senior but still below industry average pay? 🙄
How to deal with jealousy over friends and peers getting amazing job offers amidst my struggle to find a new role? It keeps happening and today my friend informed me he’s leaving for a 35% pay raise. I’m making 50K less than him now and feel criminally underpaid by my lackluster company.
