Hey all - I wanted to ask if anyone has ever felt that things were not going to work out. I was a consultant for a T3 consulting firm and, despite excellent reviews was laid off without warning. I went to a startup like company in Texas and was under an abusive boss where I worked over 85+ hours and could not afford an apartment. I left to keep my sanity. I am told that I am highly skilled and have the capacity to be one of the best but I keep failing. I am 26 and my career feels like purgatory.
Guess who got laid off today!?
Who is getting laid off at Cerner?
Is Visa expected to have any layoffs due to the recession? Asking b/c I have a small workload.

Hey all, I was recently laid off from my Support Advisor role at Shopify and I would like to continue working towards a career in the Tech industry. My goal is to transition to Product management however, I’m not quite sure what that looks like for a new Business graduate with Support experience. Are there any PMs here who would be able to offer some advice on career pathing or next steps?
Is Paytm payment bank a safe option to join? Heard about the layoffs, poor wlb and culture. Genuine reviews please?

Would you rather:
Be laid off unexpectedly with an immediate termination date but you have a severance package.
Have three weeks notice the end of your contract is up and won’t be renewed but have no benefits because you’re a contractor?
Currently going through the latter and curious how others who have lost (or will lose) their job would feel.
What's happening st FCB Chicago? I heard some team members were laid off? Sorry to hear it!
My husband and I worked together at the same company for a year in different departments and they laid off 25 employees last week. My husband was one of them. 💔
It was dealt with poorly and severance benefits were bad compared to other companies we are seeing in the media. I’m really struggling to move forward and heal. The priority is for me to support him finding a new job but I just feel sick giving my time and energy to this company when they did this to us. any advice for strength😔
Took a new job only because I was laid off and desperate to find something, but it’s definitely not what I’m looking to do. Would it look bad if I left early (been about a month)? Should I include my current job on my resume or mention it if I interview?
7-8 years experience. Mid-level. New-ish to freelance after being laid off because of covid. What should I charge freelance hourly? Daily rate? Thank you.

If we accept the offer from TCS, but do not join it as other company is giving higher package than TCS.
