Anyone laid off from Deloitte been getting interviews? (Not for tech roles but more finance) im getting traction from head hunters but not much from firm website applications
How to spin a layoff? All at level or partially at next level snapshots. 70% of snapshots had performance differentiators. Group had a $9M plan but only hit $1.8M this FY. Want to stay in consulting.
Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
is there anything you can do to a previous supervisor who screwed you over due to discrimination ? Reported her to HR but not enough to get her fired.
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
Has anyone been fired in their first year in PA? What did you do afterwards to be successful?
Hey, what’s working at Grey like these days? Going strong? Layoffs? Killing it creatively? Shark Tank?
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
FYI...My friend that works at RSM got laid off. Tax associate. In the beginning she said they weren’t going to do layoffs. Glad I don’t work there anymore. Anyone at RSM can confirm?
Anyone else in FTO? I have yet to hear of any layoffs despite the fact that we are in FS. Can anyone elaborate?
How is the business going for all you consultants? Are your companies getting new projects? Any layoffs ?
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
Anyone read Sam Dogen’s (Financial Samurai) book on negotiating a severance? Thoughts? Anyone have experience negotiating a severance? Advice?
East coast senior manager here - Is it okay to text my staff consultants at 11pm PST since I cant remember to read my emails? Also, when I lie to the client, is it okay to then blame my team, or would that get me in trouble?
I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating. I said it was fine, but the more I think about it the less I’m open to relocating. I now have an offer from them, is there anyway to negotiate no relocation? They are remote until mid year 2021. I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.

What does growth look like for a typical recruiter. What’s the next step in their career? I’ve been a recruiter for 3 years now and thinking about doing an online MBA while still working.. is that a good move?
Well I'm gonna ask for help on here, anyone know if their firm is hiring in consulting either S&O or HC?
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
Any updates on the hiring freeze?

Any people with H1B visas and transferring to other agencies? Need to know a bit more about the process and would love some insight. Just very afraid to even start looking if the process is really bad
